How to Become A Motorbike Rider

Executive summary about motorbike riders by ChuckRogers

A guide for those even considering becoming a motorbike rider. Save money on gas, help the environment and have fun!!

1. I'd like to give you some hopefully helpful information on buying your first motorbike. Why can't saving money and helping the environment be fun at the same time? For most of my life I swore I would never ride a motorbike. After going online and learning more about motorbike safety courses, I decided to take a field trip down to my local motorbike dealership and learn more. Many dealerships offer motorbike training courses. Most of the courses offered by dealerships don't even require you to own a motorbike. I would suggest that you first take the motorbike safety course first to see if motorbike riding is something for you. I recommend the course to all motorbike riders.

2. After completion of the riding course the real fun begins. It's time to figure out which bike to purchase. What size bike will you be comfortable with? Even though you've completed the motorbike safety course, you still need to consider your first motorbike as one you're still going to train on. There are many motorbike clubs that ride as a group. Remember the three advantages of learning to ride. Save on gas, help the environment and have fun!

3. I would recommend a used bike for your first one. Not being an experienced rider, your first motorbike may get dropped. Part of the motorbike safety course teaches you how to set the bike upright again if it gets dropped. First of all, a new bike will have an initial break-in period of 1000 miles. During that time you'll need to keep your speed down and ride the bike gingerly. With a used bike you don't have this initial break in period. If you buy this bike at a dealership the bike will be freshly and professionally serviced before your purchase. Then your motorbike will only need servicing every 5000 miles or a year if you're not that frequent of a rider. Some people prefer to get their bikes serviced before the start of riding season, particularly if you live in a place that prevents winter riding. If you buy this bike from a private seller you'll probably get a better price. If the dealer takes this bike in on trade, there won't be shipping charges added to the price of the motorbike.

4. When shopping for a motorbike, first decide on what size bike you'll be comfortable with. I would recommend a smaller size motorbike for your first bike. Well, it's a lot easier to do this with a smaller bike than it is to do with a larger bike. Remember, this is your first bike. It's not your last bike. It's a bike to keep only for a year. After that you shouldn't be afraid of dropping a bike and you'll feel more comfortable riding a larger motorbike. You're also going to outgrow your smaller bike. Remember, just because you pick out a smaller bike for your first one, doesn't mean that you'll need to limit your storage space. Saddle bags can be put on just about any motorbike.

5. Many dealerships advertise their motorbikes online. You can comparison shop for motorbikes all over the country. There is even a place to get shipping costs if you need to have your bike delivered. Check to see if this bike is being sold by a dealer or a private seller. Make sure the bike has a clear title and not a salvage title. Read the description of the motorbike. Also notice what accessories this motorbike has. You may want a motorbike with an after market exhaust system.

6. Now let me tell you a couple of helpful tools in order to see if the price that is being charged for the bike is commiserate with the value of the motorbike. Type in the words "motorbike values" into your search engine. This will take you to several sites that are designed to give you information on just what the motorcycle you're considering is worth. Some sites will give low, average and high retail values. Others will give you retail values and trade in values.

7. Yes, there is a risk in riding a motorbike. I'm not saying that a motorbike should be your only means of transportation. The motorbike will still pay for itself if you ride it enough to save on gas prices.

8. "I'm just not the motorbike type." Motorbike riders come in all shapes, sizes and ages. In fact if you go down to your local motorbike dealer, you might be surprised what you see. The men and women you meet will make you realize that motorbike enthusiasts are just regular people who happen to enjoy riding motorbikes.
