In this article, we are going to take a look at what it means to dream about a motorcycle. It is usually a positive dream signifying that you are moving forward. Motorcycles are often connected to being wild and free so a dream about riding a motorcycle can suggest that you are searching for freedom. Perhaps you feel restricted in some section of your life. However, it can also mean that challenges are coming your way.
The Meaning of a Motorcycle in a Dream
To ride a motorcycle in a dream indicates that you want to be an active member of society. You want to throw yourself into whatever life offers you, not watch from the sidelines. To be a passenger, however, can mean that you don’t have control of what is happening in your life. It could be either at work or in your personal life. Alternatively, you could be heading for an affair of the heart. Beware if you are married as it won’t end well. If you are either the rider or the passenger and you feel the wind in your face, you are looking for freedom to express yourself. To dream that you are the owner of a motorcycle and have a passenger means that you are going to have fun sooner rather than later. To dream that you are riding abroad simply means that you want to see the world. If you see someone else ride a motorcycle, somebody you know is going to lead you in a different direction which will make you happy.
If you are being chased by someone on a motorcycle, the dream isn’t quite so positive. It can mean that you are hiding from your responsibilities. Maybe you aren’t supporting your family financially. In the same way, if you see yourself learning to ride a motorcycle, someone is going to confront you for neglecting your responsibilities.
Riding without a helmet in your dream indicates rebelliousness. Speeding means that someone is going to challenge you, probably at work. To be driving drunk suggests that you can’t keep up with changes at work.
If you see a lot of motorcycles riding together, it means that you should consider yourself more. You have been putting in an excessive amount of energy into helping others while neglecting yourself. Alternatively, it can mean that you are putting too much stock into material wealth while neglecting emotions.
Now, we’ll take a look at some of these themes in more detail.
Dreaming About Owning a Motorcycle
Perhaps you want more excitement in your life? Maybe you feel that everything is dull and boring. If so, you may easily dream about owning a motorcycle. Motorbikes represent freedom and fun. Perhaps you have too many responsibilities and just want to enjoy yourself for once. Alternatively, you could be in a situation you are not happy with, and you want to escape from it. Perhaps you have too many responsibilities and it is getting too much for you. Dreaming of owning a motorcycle can give you the push you need.
However, according to Carl Jung, a dream specialist, dreaming of owning a motorcycle can simply mean raw sexuality. Perhaps there is someone you are deeply attracted to and want to have a relationship with.
Dreaming About a Motorcycle Accident
To dream of being in a motorcycle accident can be either positive or negative. You will need to interpret the rest of the dream and compare it with what you are going through in your waking life.
On a positive note, the dream can mean that you are a determined person and you will do anything to achieve your goals. However, there is a hidden warning that you should consider the risks you could take. Not every risk is worth it. Consider that you might get hurt as you were hurt in the dream. However, the risk could also affect you emotionally as well as physically. Alternatively, it could mean that you are afraid of failing. It’s time to look failure in the eye and refuse to accept it.
You might be speeding in your dream when you have an accident. This can mean that you are speeding through life and not enjoying every minute of the time you have.
Dreaming About Being a Passenger on a Motorcycle
If you dream that you are just a passenger on a motorcycle, it can mean that you don’t have any excitement in your waking life. You’re probably bored, but it is up to you to change things.
Alternatively, it can predict that you are going to have an affair. You are married, but you are attracted to someone else. The dream can help to stop the adultery that could take place. Take a moment to consider what you might lose if you go ahead with the affair.
If you look at the motorcycle closely before you get on it can mean that you are afraid to break the rules. While breaking the rules now and again is part of life, going as far as an affair isn’t the best choice.
Dreaming About Falling Off a Motorcycle
There is a spiritual connection between motorcycles and blessings. If you fall off a motorcycle, it can mean that you are going to be given blessings in your waking life.
Alternatively, such a dream can mean that you are afraid of losing certain things in your life. It could be a person you care about or your job. This dream can mirror how you feel. Perhaps you feel as if you are falling from a great height. However, be kind to yourself. Everybody goes through bad times, but usually, you come out the other side a stronger person. We all make mistakes, but that’s just being human.
The Islamic Meaning of a Motorcycle Dream
In Islam, to dream of a motorcycle has different meanings. It can mean that you are about to reach something you’ve aimed for. The great thing about this is you haven’t had to put that much effort into it. Alternatively, this dream is connected to concern and care. You are living in a good place with people who love and care for you.
Are There Particular Symbols Connected to Motorcycles?
There are many symbols connected to motorcycles, for example, excitement and adrenaline. It can be very exciting to ride a motorbike out on the open road, overtaking cars and trucks.
Motorcycles are also associated with effort. It’s not that easy to learn how to ride a motorcycle. The test to get a license is tough. It’s harder than trying to get a car license and you have to be dedicated. Some people will say that riding a motorcycle is much more dangerous than driving a car. After all, you are exposed and it can be more serious if you are knocked off a bike than if you’re in a car accident (see also Car Accident Dream Symbolism). You have to get a balance between driving safely and having fun. You need to concentrate and this can be compared with the rest of your waking life. You need to concentrate on everything you do if you want to have success. Dreaming of motorcycles suggests that you should take part in life, not just sit on the sidelines. Even if you follow all the rules, it doesn’t mean that you won’t get into trouble just as if you drive carefully doesn’t mean that you won’t get into an accident. There are people out there that are reckless. If you dream of a lot of motorcycles driving along, emotions will be high. Perhaps you are simply excited about life.
Dreaming of Being Chased by a Motorcycle
If you dream that someone on a motorcycle is chasing you, it could mean that you are worried that someone is going to overtake you. Perhaps you are worried that a work colleague is going to get that promotion, not you.
Alternatively, this dream can bring memories of old dreams that encouraged you to take bold steps. However, you didn’t and now you regret it. It is time to be braver and take up opportunities when they arise.
Dreaming of Buying a Motorcycle
To dream of buying a motorbike is a hopeful dream. You want to make changes in your life for the better. This is a common dream if you are bored and fed up. You are craving affection. It can also reflect something you have wanted to do but haven’t dared to try. Perhaps you want to go on vacation to deepest Africa. Maybe there is a beautiful woman you are attracted to but haven’t yet had the courage to ask her out. Just remember you are as young as you feel and that it’s never too late to take new steps or start afresh.
Dreaming About a Motorcycle Race
If you dream that you are watching a motorbike race, it can relate to your career. You are running a race with colleagues and you want to win that promotion. However, the pressure is on and you have to be careful not to fall off the track. If you fall off your motorcycle during the dream, you might not win at work.
If you win the race, it is positive and you have a good chance of succeeding in your endeavors. However, if you lose the race, you will have to work hard to get what you want out of life, be it in your personal or business life.
Dreaming About a Broken Motorcycle
Dreaming that your motorcycle is broken can reflect your waking life. Perhaps things haven’t gone as planned despite all the plans you had for the future. Maybe you hoped to have a bigger house, a better career, a happier family life. However, all is not lost. Like a motorcycle, your life can be mended. You might have to slightly alter some of your plans, but there is hope.
Dreaming About Riding a Motorcycle Quickly
If you dream that you are speeding on a motorbike, it can mean that you are speeding through life. You want to get everything done at the same time, but it would be better if you slowed down and appreciated the little things in life. Even if you are trying to become a top dog in your profession, you need to realize that great things can take time.
However, depending on your waking situation, the dream can be negative. You are going so fast that you will burn yourself out. This can stop you from reaching your goal.
Dreaming About a Stolen Motorcycle
This isn’t a positive dream. It could be that somebody has spoiled things for you. Perhaps they stole your romantic partner or took the job you were expecting to get. This dream brings it all back to you. You could be wondering what your life would have been like if this hadn’t happened. Would it have been better or would you still feel dissatisfied with life? The dream is telling you that if you are angry, let it all out. Scream if you have to.
