If you are considering buying your first bike, you will probably want to spend a little bit of time researching the process. There are many things to consider when you start looking for a motorcycle, and if you don’t do your homework first, you may end up paying too much money or finding out too late that you really didn’t need to buy a motorcycle to begin with. With that being said, take a few moments to read these tips, and then have three simple rules ready. Then, we’ll get to other details later.
First off, there are some important points to remember about first bikes. Balance bikes and sports bikes, for instance, are usually not appropriate for anyone under the age of 16, unless they have someone to accompany them. If you have your parent or guardian along, however, you can ride any kind of bike, as long as it’s not registered as a moped, motorcycle, bike, scooter, skateboard, or something of the sort. Anything more than a motorbike is too risky and should be avoided at all costs.
Second of all, you need to know that there are a variety of different sizes, and styles, to choose from, so you can choose the right one for your needs. First off, there are three main categories: two-wheeled bike (which often refers to a normal street bike), three-wheeled bike, and four-wheeled bike. Two-wheeled bikes tend to be smaller than three or four-wheeled ones, and have much lower handling, so they’re better for children or people who are only interested in a light ride. On the other hand, three or four-wheeled bikes are usually medium-sized, with better handling, but much larger wheels, for higher speeds and maneuverability.
