Motorcycles are a popular and fuel-efficient alternative to cars. However, it is important to remember the limitations of two-wheeled travel. Nova Scotia’s winter climate means that motorcycles can be used for only part of the year (usually March/April – October/November). Motorcycles cannot carry more than one passenger, and have limited storage space. To operate a motorcycle, you must obtain a special license, which requires additional fees and training. Motorcycles, like cars, must be registered, insured, and inspected for safety.
