Have a look
Only a motorcycle gives you the feeling of true freedom between the sky and the road.
You are not only riding the motorcycle, you are also shaping it. Just as it shapes you and your life with every mile you travel together and with every hour spent customizing. In this way, the motorcycling tradition is your shared slipstream and modern technology your impulse heritage in the truest sense of the word. Pass on your style to these modern classics, making them as unique as you.
It makes your tour memorable
How would you like to ride a bike which allows you to do virtually anything? A bike that takes you from your motorcycling lessons to your first tour, from Winding Mountain passes to stretches of motorway and gravel tracks? A bike that is as economical as you would expect of a modern machine but always provides pure riding fun? And one which makes you looks good whether you are five feet or six feet tall?
Equipment and Maintenance
This is where things can add up. Cars go a lot longer between service intervals, not to mention things like tire, spark plug, and belt replacement. Tires can be especially expensive on motorcycles, running between $400 and $600 for a set. And depending on how hard you ride, you may have to change at least the rear tire every 3,000 miles or so. Chains and drive belts need occasional replacing, and those can cost between $140 and $250. Maintenance intervals can run anywhere between 5,000 and 20,000 miles, depending on the motorcycle, but if there’s a valve adjustment involved, expect to pay anywhere between $800 and $1,500. Add in regular oil changes, chain maintenance, and various other odds and ends and, if you ride often, you can expect to drop at least $1,000 per year just on maintenance.
How to choose best bike for you?
The best buyer is an informed one—and there’s this thing called the Internet with a lot of information on it, so you really have no excuse. Generally speaking, motorcycle salesmen are pretty knowledgeable, but they aren’t shamans, so you need to have an idea of what you’re looking for. And in the off chance that you get a clueless salesman, it’s even more important to be informed. If you know what type of riding you plan on doing—track days, commuting, cruising, touring, or just tooling around town—you can usually narrow your options and read my review before even hitting the motorcycle shops.
