How to Choose the Right Motorcycle for You

By Breyer Law Offices on February 15, 2013

As Arizona motorcycle accident attorneys, we want to see people stay safe while sharing the road. For beginner bikers, this could mean making sure to choose a motorcycle that is right for your body type and type of riding. According to J.D. Power and Associates, many new riders are over the age of 50. Our advice is to make sure you aren’t buying a bike that you won’t enjoy. Here’s a breakdown of the different types:

Cruisers:

Cruisers, such as the Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide and the Honda Fury, allow you to kick back, sport your leather jacket, and enjoy your ride. They offer deeper seats and higher handlebars and often position your legs more forward while you ride.

Baggers:

If you’re really into touring across the state or country, you’ll want a bagger. These feature tall windshields, storage space for your gear, heated and cushioned seats, and more. They include the Honda Gold Wing and BMW K1600GT.

Bullet Bikes:

If you’re into speed and exhilaration, a bullet bike might be right for you. The seats push you forward into a racing position. With this low profile, these bikes are not suitable for longer rides or cruising.

Women’s Bikes:

Women’s bikes typically offer smaller frames and lighter weights. Some of the top women’s bikes include the Harley Davidson Sportster, Honda Shadow, Yamaha V-Star, and Suzuki Boulevard.

If you are in the market for a new bike, you should spend time test driving them just as you would a car. A good bike dealer will help you choose the right style for you, as well as let you take it for a test ride to make sure it’s really what you want. While you’re there, you should also invest in a helmet, protective jacket and pants, and some good riding boots.

Skilled Protection for the Injured

As a new rider, we hope you are never involved in a motorcycle accident. However, if you find yourself in this position, we hope you’ll seek the best possible representation. The team at Breyer Law Offices, P.C., is experienced in representing motorcycle riders, and we work hard to obtain settlements for our injured clients.
