Riding a motorcycle is as easy as 1-2-3. But buying one especially for first timers can be a daunting task. Why is this so? Well, for one, there are quite a number of factors to consider. There are a lot of motorcycles to choose from. Plus, a lot of bikers out there who share their different views, insights and whatnot. Now, if you do happen to be buying a bike for the first time, read on.
All information narrated here will help you big time in making that huge decision of purchasing one for yourself, but if you need any extra help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via Facebook. Always remember, that a motorcycle is like a car. You need to take care of it, have it checked regularly, and drive on it safely on the road. So, let’s begin with the first guideline.
First, you need to consider the engine. It is very easy to remember – the bigger the cc is, the faster it’s speed and you get more power out of your motorbike. If you want to become a hardcore biker and love to race, drives at a fastest speed go for one that has a higher CC. If you are going to use it to report to work and short distance travel within the city, smaller CC will do.
Second, weight does matter when buying a motorcycle. Do keep in mind that the heavier the bike is the more it is difficult for you to lift it up when it gets knock out. How much more when you have met an accident? Make sure that the weight is enough for you to lift it all up when it gets knocked down. This will save you big time in case you are going to have mishaps on the road.
Third, like any other thing you are going to buy consider the idea of either buying it brand new or used. Well, of course, there are pros and cons with regard to this. However, it all boils down on what your preferences are, what you can afford, and how much hassle you can hurdle in the long run when it comes to maintenance. Do also think about the cost of daily wear and tear. Yes, used bike might be cheap at first what about when it comes to maintenance. This will cost you more. With brand new motorcycles, they might be expensive but maintenance would be a breeze and does not cost you that much.
As a beginner and first time bike owner, it all boils down on you. Have your thoughts fixed and do consider the idea of asking questions with other bikers out there. They might be able to give you an advise on where to buy, the brand, the style. Then, weigh the pros and cons. You are the owner. You are the rider. Be sure that the motorcycle you are going to buy fits your personality, budget, and the purpose of why you are buying it in the first place.
