Ryuta Kawashima – the scientist behind the popular ‘Brain Training’ computer game said a study clearly shows riding a motorcycle keeps the brain invigorated.
Dr Kawashima, 49, a ‘self-professed bike fan’ said "The rider's brain gets activated by riding motorbikes."
The test involved 22 in their 40s and 50s, who held motorcycle licences but had not ridden for at least a decade. They were then split into two groups; one asked to resume riding motorcycles in everyday life for two months, and another that kept using bicycles or cars.
"The group that rode motorbikes posted higher marks in cognitive function tests," Kawashima said, adding "In a convenient and easy environment, the human mind and body get used to setting the hurdle low. Our final conclusion is that riding motorcycles can lead to smart ageing."
