When you are out in the market shopping for your first motorcycle, it can be tricky and you may end up buying something that’s not right for you. It is not like buying baseball bats where you can just consult The Sportsman’s Bible. And besides baseball bats are far different from Motorcycles. In this quick post, let’s talk about how to pick your first motorcycle.
How to Choose a motorcycle?
Let’s take it from the expert. The video below discusses how to pick a motorcycle for the first time. Let’s take his tips bit by bit and apply it in our effort to purchase what’s right and to avoid spending on something that’s not beneficial at the end. Your first bike should at least be a learning curve for you when you learn hands on about exhaust maintenance and other technicalities that comes with it.
Picking a motorcycle can be a kind of confusing thing and somewhat a full learning for people at first. So, here’s a couple of quick guidelines of how you should go about on picking your motorcycle.
What should you consider when getting your first bike?
- Size. First you should pick one that’s appropriately sized for you. Physically not too big or not too heavy as well as not too powerful for your riding ability, if you pick something that you can easily handle, you are going to have fun at the same time learn on.
- Power. There are a lot of good bikes out there and power is also one that you should account for. For example, the beginner bikes from about 254 strokes. These bikes are really good for smaller people. There are also a ton of 600th types out there and these are really rider friendly.
- Style. You should also consider the style that is best for you. Do you you like a sport bike or supermoto bike? Or perhaps a standard upright bike or perhaps like a chopper cruiser style motorcycle?
So decide about the size, power, and style. Cosmetically you can pick something that doesn’t look the greatest right away. Don’t be afraid to get something that’s not too expensive, for it might change the style you want in a few months or years. Instead, pick something that you can trade in and move to something that’s more desirable after you gain experience. In time, you will be riding the bike of your dreams.
