How to Pick the Bike for Youadmin
If you are new to riding, choosing the first bike can seem a little overwhelming. Harley’s are probably one of the best bikes to start out with. The tough part is which one do you choose?! Harley has come out with countless models and styles to suit all kinds of riders.
Try Them Out and Sit on a Few of Them
Anyone with experience will tell you to go to a dealer and try sitting and riding on a few of them. Head to your local Harley dealer and commit yourself to sitting on as many different styles as possible. This is the only way to get a feel for different bikes. You may find that the motorcycle you were in love with isn’t comfortable at all. Remember, this is the bike you want to enjoy so it has to feel like a good fit. As you sit on the different models, place your feet flat on the ground and your hands on the handlebars. Do you feel comfortable? While you’re riding, pay attention to the fit and size of the bike. If you can’t comfortably reach the ground, can they lower the bike? Can you reach the handlebars without stretching forward? All of these are good things to remember when choosing your bike.
Remember, at this point; you should focus on the core of the motorcycle. Virtually everything is customizable. So don’t get hung up on the minor details when it comes to style. You will probably change out the pipes, handlebars, and seat later anyway.
Is This Bike Right For Me?
The only way to answer this question is to go sit on a few. When you find the right one, you will no longer ask, which Harley is right for me? You will know by the feeling of your body becoming one with the bike. To make sure you’re happy with your choice long term, think about your expectations and intended use of your motorcycle. You want to pick a motorcycle that is suited for your needs.
