What to Check When Buying A Used Motorcycle

My dear single biker men and biker women, do you know what to do after you decided to buy a used motorcycle? Well, it is indeed a lengthy process involving many things if you want to get yourself a nice and amazing bike.

First, you may decide what type of bike you want to try or what type of riding you will do, which will greatly narrow down your choices. Will you be commuting, taking motorcycle travel with your biker partners, riding your biker girl for a date, taking a track day? Then you may want to buy it from a reputable dealership, where you will get back-up if something happens to your motorcycle once you bought it. Although you may get a cheaper quote from private dealership, you may have to deal with all the issues after the purchase. Next, let’s take a look at the things that you need to look for when buying a second-hand motorcycle.

1. The tyres – the tyres should have good tread without signs of uneven wear or damage. Remember to check the profile of the tyres. If the rear looks a bit squared rather than round, then it must be replaced for many times.
2. The drive chain and sprocket – the chain that is not be taken care of may cripple a bike and endanger the rider’s safety. So, try to move the bike a few inches forward to check if it moves roughly. And the shape of the teeth of the sprocket should be even.
3. Battery – clean battery leads suggest that the bike hasn’t been unattended for a long time. And motorcycle riders should check if there is a sign of corrosion.
4. Sit on the bike – after your checking of the individual components, single bikers should sit on the bike to observe the condition of the brake, clutch levers, straightness of the bars, bar-end weights and instrument cluster. Grab the front brake and compress the forks. They should react with even and firm resistance and rebound back to their starting point. Check the visible frame. Make sure there is no dents, kinks or visible damage on the frame.
5. The fuel tank – use your flash light to check the fuel tank. There should be no obvious sign of rust or corrosion in it.
6. Check what is missing and what need to be maintained – after checking the key components, single motorcycle riders need to check if there is anything that is missing. Sometimes, those harmless parts can be expensive to replace. And get a budget of the maintenance.

How to Be A Biker When You Are Old

In the US, most of the single bikers are over 40 years old. And all the veteran riders may have noticed that certain physical and mental limitations are likely to be a hindrance to their riding when they are getting older and older. Of course, there are also younger motorcycle riders who are full of vigor and confidence. But they will want to ride for the rest of their lives. Indeed, it is still possible to perform even better than they were young if they remain relatively fit, learn to be efficient both physically and mentally, as well as capitalize on the insight that comes with age.

It is clearly that motorcycling isn’t for those who are weak in mind and muscle. Riding a bike is a relatively dangerous activity that requires all Harley riders to maintain a certain level of sensory sharpness, strength and mental competence. Or you are not responsible for your own life and will put yourself at a great risk of crashes. If you do crash you are likely to get hurt or even get deadly injury. So, keeping fit and making yourself to be strong enough to take control of the motorcycle will allow you to ride a motorcycle as well as you want to be when you are old.

To be physically efficient is important for single motorcycle riders to maintain endurance and alertness. Many older riders are able to match the stamina of riders who are younger than them just because they’ve learned to conserve energy. For example, they know how to use their torso and leg muscles to hang off the motorcycle while on track, not their arms. Besides, riding smoothly and minimizing unneeded inputs is another way to preserve energy on the street. To be mentally efficient is to make smart and quick decisions on the street. Road rage and other impulsive behaviors will only put riders to more dangers. So, keep a calm manner can preserve mental energy and free the minds to make quick and better decisions when things happen suddenly.

If you want to date a biker girl when you are over 50, riding motorcycle will be better. As age grows, one of the first things to diminish is vision. Unfortunately, having good eyesight is very essential for riding motorcycles. So, older motorcycle riders should slow down if they can’t see well enough ahead. And make sure the eye protection is clean and undamaged. Then you should regularly visit your eye doctor for advice and treatment.

Get Yourself Prepared for the Spring Motorcycle Riding Hazards

Be well prepared for the sping riding hazards

Spring is coming. Those single bikers who haven’t ridden for the whole winter are eager to ride out to enjoy the warm sunshine and the ultimate freedom on their motorcycles. However, there are some special hazards during springtime riding that require all riders to be well prepared. Next, let’s take a look at those three main hazards on the road.

The messy road
Single motorcycle riders usually love to ride to the countryside to get close to the nature. But the road surface of the countryside is usually covered with mud and gravel that are washed and dragged onto the road by the melting snow. It will take a lot of time and workers to clean up all these. At intersections or steep slopes, there are sand, gravel and cinders. In farming country, the roads are unpaved and the driveways are likely to be tracked by the mud and gravel. Besides, when you are riding behind a car, you should pay attention to see the road that the car drive through. There might be sharp-edged pothole straddled by the car’s wheels.

Drives in the car don’t see you
Many drivers in the car selectively ignore the motorcycle and the single Harley rider on it. They may see you, but they do not pay attention to you. Because you are not the cars or trucks that can be a danger to them. So, after a crash, they would say five words at many cases – I didn’t see the motorcycle. Of course, the drivers are telling the truth. It is impossible to register all the things along the road in the brains of car drivers, which will cause sensory overload. Their brains will choose to exclude the non-essentials and to focus only on those objects that are a threat or survival to them.

Yourself are also the hazards
After a long break in the winter, motorcycle riders’ skills in the spring are never going to be as sharp as they are in the autumn. So, you should try several rides to get yourself back in the groove. However, rusty skills are not the only trouble to your spring ride. Motorcycle also need to be checked carefully. Pay attention to tires and brakes. Or search for some tips and articles on Google or the forums of online biker dating sites about how to prepare your motorcycle for the spring ride. And remember to be patient on the road.
