Buying Your First Motorbike
You've learned your motorcycle basics, taken a safety course, and decided to take the plunge and buy your first bike?
Here are a few pointers before you make that big purchase.
Don't over estimate your ability.
One common mistake among new riders is to purchase a bike with far more performance than they can handle. Stay away from road racers, especially anything with an engine larger than 600cc, learn to ride on a slower bike, you'll become a better rider because of it. Plus, after you've honed your skills and gained experience, you'll be ready to upgrade and truly appreciate a faster bike.
Consider your needs.
Will you be riding in lots of traffic? Traveling long distances? Motorcycles come in many shapes and sizes, and you must consider your individual needs when picking a bike.
Consider how you'll be using your bike, and how riding it will impact your experience; for instance, if you're looking for a weekend toy, you might be more tolerant of a sexy bike that happens to be uncomfortable.
Recognizing your needs will make choosing your future bike become infinitely easier.
Whatever you do, make sure you get a professional pre purchase inspection, someone like Motorbike Transport com au that have a great reputation, it's only a little insurance for you, better to be safe than sorry.
Hope it was of some value.
