Buy a motorcycle: how to pick the right motorcycle for you

Deciding to take the plunge to purchase a motorcycle isn’t always an easy conclusion to come to, and there is a lot of factors to consider. New vs. used, the best motorcycles to buy for the budget, whether or not you want to take an MSF course, these are just a few of the things you need to have lined up before you take the plunge. 

Your motorcycle choice can often say a lot about you: what kind of riding style you hope to achieve, what style of riding group you might become a part of, and a variety of other considerations. Personally, I believe that there shouldn’t be any groups. As long as you’re a rider, you should be welcome virtually anywhere within the riding community. But it’s important that you choose a motorcycle you’re not only comfortable riding, but one that feels like it could be an extension of yourself.

Is it cliche and possibly too emotional? Maybe, but anyone who rides knows that a motorcycle feels like part of your family. But, in order to feel that appreciation, you need to choose the right bike and here’s some tips for that.

Take a look at this slideshow to see what aspects you should consider when you’re deciding on a bike. Take what you want, leave what you don’t want, and make the decision that’s best for you. Let’s get ready to ride!
