How to Choose a Harley Motorcycle

February 11th, 2019 by

Looking for your next, or even your first, Harley-Davidson motorcycle? El Cajon Harley-Davidson has provided some tips to help you narrow down your options. That way when you stop by our California dealership, you can let us know which models you’d like to look at first.

Purpose
Start by thinking about what you plan to do with your motorcycle. Bikes are almost as versatile as cars, so what you need could change which models you view. For example, riders who want to show off a stylish, no-nonsense ride in narrow city streets might start by looking at the Street bikes. Those who want some of the best performance on the market might turn their attention to the Softail family. And riders who prefer long-distance traveling will want to check out the Touring motorcycles. When you stop by our dealership, bring your list of priorities so we can show you some of the motorcycles with features most beneficial to you.

Size
Pay attention to the size of the bikes you’re looking at. Bigger models might be harder for newer riders to control, but they might also give veteran riders the stability they need for longer trips. Also, Harley-Davidson bikes are made with a one size fits all standard, knowing that one size does not fit all. When you find a bike you really love, take a moment to sit in the seat and decide if you’ll need aftermarket parts to help you stretch out your limbs or bring the controls closer to you.

Budget
Perhaps one of the most influential factors, setting a budget is an important step to take in order to avoid spending so much on a bike that it puts you in a financial strain. Just make sure it’s realistic for the prices you’ll be looking at. Otherwise, you’ll be left scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Now all that’s left is to stop by El Cajon Harley-Davidson to check out the models we have available right now. We proudly serve Lakeside and San Diego, California.
