Motorcycle Shopping

Provided by:

Not to belabor the obvious, but if you've never owned a motorcycle, promise yourself that you'll look into one of the 1,500 rider courses offered by the Motorcycle Safely Foundation.  A lot can happen when you're riding a motorcycle and some of it's not good. So take the time to learn how to ride it right. You'll find more information on safety courses at msf-usa.org.

Decide What You Want

As you probably know, there are any number of different types of motorcycles: touring, cruiser, sport, standard, dual purpose, motocross and enduro bikes.

Whichever you choose, there are a number of things to consider when shopping for a bike.

1. Does it fit?  Sit on it and see if the seat height is right. Ideally, you should be able to straddle the bike with both feet flat on the floor with your knees slightly bent.

2. Is it too heavy?  If you were to drop the bike, could you pick it up yourself?  Can you balance it when stopped?

3. Is it reliable?  Here you'll want to do some homework and do some Internet research. In addition, ask friends who own bikes about their maintenance costs, performance problems and their overall satisfaction. 

4. Does it have what you need?  Again, do your homework. Decide what you're going to need in terms of engine size, fuel tank capacity, accessories, etc. In short, don't overdo it. Don't get carried away with a bunch of bells and whistles and end up with a bike that costs too much and has features you'll never use....
