Check Your Helmet!

Check Your Helmet Month

April marks an important month for bikers and motorcycle safety — Check Your Helmet Month! Check Your Helmet Month is an initiative to ensure bikers get the highest quality of safety in the event a helmet will be used to save a life. Here are some tips and reminders:

  1. Aging – If your helmet has not been damaged or dropped, be sure to replace it every 3-5 years. Basic use and UV rays from those long, sunny rides can reduce the protective quality of your helmet after a while. Also, be sure to check with your local motorcycle dealership for helmet trade-in offers in the month of April. Some dealers offer up to 15% off your next helmet purchase with a trade-in.
  2. Impact – Crashes or even one drop can cause serious damage to the protective quality of your helmet. Even if there are no visible signs of damage, you should replace your helmet immediately if any impact occurs.
  3. Fit and Function – For the best fit, your helmet should rest about one inch above your eyebrows and should NOT roll forward or sideways when you move. Many dealers with apparel stores will help you find the proper fit if you ask! For function, check your local and state laws to make sure your helmet meets the minimum safety standards. You can also do this by looking for DOT stickers on the inside or outside of the helmet. Having this sticker ensures that your helmet has passed its tests for impact, penetration, retention and peripheral vision.

Additionally, make sure that your helmet is never exposed to insect repellents, gasoline, excessive heat or other harmful liquids and fumes. Exposure to harsh chemicals can degrade the helmet’s protective materials without any visible sign.

For more information on protection and helmet suggestions, check out this flyer by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and the MotoUSA blog.

Sell Your Bike FAST With Our “Ultimate Listing”!

AprilPromo - APCX15

If your motorcycle is for sale, now is the best time to list it on ChopperExchange.com. More and more people are looking to buy motorcycles and start riding again now that the weather is warming up. This month is the best time to list your bike for sale.

The best listing option that we offer is our “Ultimate Listing”. It is the best bang for your buck because it is an “until sold” listing and offers all of our listing upgrades for one flat price of $137. This listing option guarantees your bike will get the most exposure on ChopperExchange, compared to our other listing options.

For the entire month of April, we’re offering 40% OFF our “Ultimate Listing” using the promo code APCX15 at checkout. Click here to list your bike for sale today: chopperexchange.com/SellYourBike

An “until sold” listing means that your ad will run however long it takes your bike to sell, whether it be 5 days or 5 months. Bikes on our website typically sell within the first 2 months, however some more custom motorcycles take a bit longer to find the right buyer. By having an “until sold” listing option, you won’t have to worry about the ad time running out before the bike gets sold, then risk paying additional fees to re-list.

The Ultimate Listing option also includes the following listing upgrades that our other listings do not offer:

  • Featured Listing ($30 value): Your motorcycle appears at the beginning (top) of search results, with a red Featured stamp on the main image, anytime someone searches for any of the criteria that match your motorcycle’s description. This is an ideal upgrade for popular motorcycle models. It prevents the motorcycle from being buried in other listings in its category. Featured Listing feature only takes effect in the search results and not on the Home page for aesthetic purposes.
  • Highlighted Listing ($20 value): Your motorcycle listing appears highlighted in yellow in the search results. The yellow highlighting makes it stand out from other listings and grabs the potential buyers’ attention.
  • Showcase Listing ($60 value): Your motorcycle appears in a Showcased area on every search page. That means that your motorcycle will be seen by all buyers searching for motorcycles on ChopperExchange. Showcased motorcycles are rotated every 7 seconds to make sure that each one gets equal amount of exposure.
  • Anonymous Telephone Number ($7 value): Assigned telephone number that will forward all calls from interested buyers to the telephone number on my account. The text messages sent to the anonymous number will be intercepted by ChopperExchange to weed out any messages that might be from online scam artists.

If you’re interested in listing your American V-Twin motorcycle for sale, please feel free to visit our website at ChopperExchange.com and use the promo code CXBL20 for 20% off any listing option at checkout.

Feel free to call (800)-523-7274 or email info@chopperexchange.com with any questions.

Motorcycle Match

bikematchOne of the most popular questions we hear from a new rider is: “What type of Harley should I buy?” The answer to this question really depends on the rider. Everyone is made differently, so you need to take your height and weight into consideration when deciding which new bike to purchase.

One of the biggest misconceptions when deciding which Harley to buy is that women should choose smaller models and men should buy the remaining bigger models. The truth of the matter is that some of the bigger bikes are more appropriate for smaller riders because of their comfort and stability level. It is very important to consider more than just the size of the motorcycle and further examine all of its benefits and features.

ChopperExchange has put together a very short survey questionnaire to help guide you in the right direction of which Harley-Davidson motorcycle might be the best fit for you. It’s 100% FREE and provides instant results on which H-D models might be best for you.

Click here to find out which Harley you match up with: ChopperExchange.com/Match.

We recommend visiting a local dealer and sitting on a few different models to figure out which bike you feel more comfortable on. Some bikes have lowered seats and handle bars. Some are made for touring, while others are best for shorter trips.

Please call us at (800)-523-7274 if you have any questions or need help finding your next motorcycle.
