These days, lots of people are discovering the joys of putting on their leathers and helmet, climbing on their motorcycle and hitting the open road. Gone are the days when a motorcycle was only for the rebel or gang. Lot’s of professionals, students and even retired people are finding that riding a motorcycle can be a great way to get out and enjoy the feel of the sun on your back and wind in your face. More and more people are choosing a motorcycle or even a scooter over a car as their main mode of transportation, as they are relatively inexpensive to operate, have good fuel economy and, in a busy city, it’s easier to a parking space for a small vehicle. If you are one of the many people who are the proud owner of a bike or scooter, then you’ll know for yourself how great it can be.

One thing about riding a motorcycle or scooter is that you need to have your hands free while driving. You need to have everything within easy reach and you have to know just where things are when you need them. You don’t want to have your attention diverted by digging around looking for something while you’re driving. A lanyard worn around the neck is an ideal way to keep everything right where you need it when you need it.

There are lots of different lanyard styles to choose from, and they come in a wide variety of materials. There are also many different styles of fasteners, so you’ll be able to find the style that best suits you…. there’s even some that have a special mp3 or cell phone holder attachment! There also carabineer clips which are perfect for use as key holders or for any other small items. They have strong fasters that are very secure and will ensure that you don’t loose your keys.

One really fun thing to do with a lanyard or other strap item is to have them custom printed with your name, phone number or any other text you like. This is an especially great idea for a motorcycle touring club or other group. If your group does any fundraising motorcycle “runs”, these lanyards make an ideal fundraising item. They can be sold to the participants or members of the public, and since they are so inexpensive to buy, you’ll end up with a nice profit to give to the charity of your choice.

If you own a motorcycle shop, you’ll find that these lanyards make a great promotional item. You can choose a color that you like and have them custom printed with the name, phone number and web address of your shop so your customers will always know how to reach you should they need to. Their low cost makes them a perfect “giveaway” promotional item. They are something everyone can use and appreciate.

Being a motorcycle or scooter owner is one of life’s great pleasures. They are economical, easy to maintain, great on gas and just plain fun to drive. A custom printed lanyard is the ideal accessory to make it even better.
