HOW TO CHOOSE A MOTORCYCLE?

A motorcycle should be chosen based on the height and weight of the rider, so before ordering this vehicle is recommended to sit behind the wheel and feel comfortable. Buying a motorcycle, you need to understand what types they come in: Road or Classic. The most versatile models, provide a straightforward riding position, and do not exhibit aggressive driving. 

They are designed for riding on roads with different surfaces. Touring. Characterized by increased comfort, as it is designed to cover long distances while traveling.  Chopper or Crowther. This is a specific technique for experienced motorcyclists and bikers, differs in appearance, a lot of weight and a powerful motor.

What is the perfect motorcycle for beginners? What motorcycles are better to forget about without experience. These and other important points we will try to cover in this article review, prepared on the basis of advice from established bikers and riders.

With what to start looking for the first motorcycle?

With an understanding of two things. First - the main thing is your safety! The second is comfort. And both are impossible if you do not understand, for what you need the motorcycle! After all, the classes of motorcycles is not an extra line in the certificate, but an important criterion in determining the applicability.

Where, who and with whom will ride Here are the main questions to answer to yourself in order to have a guaranteed understanding what motorcycle to buy and not to regret about your choice. Let's start with the last one - with whom.

 No one. If you are only beginning to master motorcycle technique, then tarry with passengers. In fact, weight distribution and inertia of a motorcycle with a passenger is absolutely different, plus, there is a high probability of inadequate behavior of the passenger. And while you do not learn how to cope with the bike, someone to ride is not categorically recommended. Therefore, choosing the first model, in the first place you need to look at your own comfort, but not about a large backseat or its tilt in your direction (so the girl snuggled closer).

The ratio of the size of the motorcycle to the driver Even technically perfect transport will be difficult to drive if the rider is not comfortable. It is obligatory to consider your own anthropometry. Therefore, the rule of "the lighter and smaller, the better for the beginner" is not quite correct - two-meter and a hundred-kilogram "man" on some "Honda Dio" to ride will be uncomfortable and even dangerous.

Free, correct sitting (it differs from class to class), no problem with controlling controls, good visibility (including mirrors), absence of constraint and pressure, but no unnecessary movements in the saddle, on legs and levers - these are obligatory minimum. The maximum is when you also visually like the motorcycle itself, and how you look on it, because thoughts of comicality do not contribute to attentiveness. The ideal - if all this is combined with safety technology.

Every motorcycle has its roads.

If your motorcycle is needed for everyday city riding, a small small cube will be "the best thing". It will be easy to "break" a moped or a scooter, easy to park and maneuver, and it is difficult to overheat even "fifty" on short distances. If the intended "habitat of the iron horse" country roads, dirt, terrain with lots of curbs, different types of coatings, it makes sense to look at the model of high ground clearance, a decent suspension travel and large wheels. The worse the roads, the more "specialized" should be the motorcycle. For average and long distances it is better to choose models with good wind protection and low center of gravity.

Predue with purchase of a sportbike. Wind in the face, adrenaline, mobility and maneuverability, the attention of the opposite sex - all this can be obtained on any motorcycle. But when the experience of motorcycling is limited to the site of the motorcycle school or country dirt roads, then there is no need to rush. That is to say, a sport moto for beginners is an unqualified bad choice. Attention, muscle memory, the ability to determine the situation in a fraction of a second and react to it correctly come with time. A sports bike does not give it and mistakes are not forgiven, and not only yours - poor-quality coverage, unsuitable fluids, unqualified service (and qualified runs into a "copay", which we'll still talk about) - all this must be taken into account.

The greatest quantity of accidents on city streets and highways with participation of motorcyclists happens exactly with newbies on "sports"!

Nobody forbids to master a sportbike "from scratch". But it is better to do it on the motor-track, under the supervision of an experienced instructor, getting road experience on a quieter technique. If absolutely no, let us remind you that today there are enough motorcycles and scooters with good dynamics, but not so sensitive gas pedal and some limitation of power and speed, stylized as "sports". For the first time they will be enough, and then you can take a more serious technique.

How much it costs to own a motorcycle

And now we are not talking about the price of a particular model. Even absolutely sensible people, defining what motorcycle is better to buy for a beginner, forget that the money to buy it is not the last item of expenditure. Going to join the motorcycle fraternity need to remember that the money will also need to:

Training in a motorcycle school and getting a license. Regular motorcycle maintenance (the more "fashionable" and modern motorcycle, the more expensive) Proper storage and seasonal canning (if climatic conditions require it) Periodic registration of insurance Purchase of qualitative equipment None of these points should be ignored or try to save too much money on it!
