Motorcycle Riders in TandemHave you had your eye on a shiny, new bike for some time now? Ready to ride through the sunshine and wind? Thousands of people enjoy motorcycling, whether as a primary mode of transportation or as a hobby. But before committing to the purchase of a motorcycle, there are a few things you should consider.

Type of Motorcycle

There are several types of motorcycles on the market. The right bike for you largely depends on your intentions. While a traditional motorcycle works well for commuting, a sport bike is better for racing and other extreme activities. You should consider what your budge is, whether you'll be traveling over long distances and whether you'll have a passenger before selecting a bike. Your motorcycle dealer can offer more information on the motorcycles that peak your interest. In addition, you may wish to first buy a used motorcycle for less money — to ensure that you enjoy the lifestyle — before committing to a pricier, new bike.

Motorcycling Instruction

Driving a motorcycle is clearly quite different than driving a car— and it may not be something that comes naturally to all people. It's a good idea to enroll in courses that educate you on riding a bike and motorcycling safety. This will give you the opportunity to go for several test drives before spending thousands on a new set of wheels. A good course will also discuss staying safe around other cars, falling practices, safety gear, road risks and other topics of interest. If you wish to proceed with your plans to purchase a bike, you'll first need to obtain a motorcycle license to stay street legal.

Motorcycle Safety Gear

Safety should be your number one priority, so you can expect to invest in safety gear on top of the cost of the bike itself. For starters, you'll need a well-fitted helmet; ideally, your helmet should be certified by a safety testing agency to ensure its safety and compliance with state law. Other important pieces of safety gear for your consideration include a jacket, body armor, boots, gloves and eyewear. This equipment is what lies between you and the pavement during a fall, so it's important that you take the time to buy the right gear.
