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.

The Best Time to Buy a Motorcycle

Wouldn’t it be nice if after the holidays we could unwind on the couch letting all thoughts of gifts, gas, and house guests escape our minds? Well, unfortunately, most of us don’t allow such a treat but rather find January’s tenacious to-do list kicking down our door while we’re still scrambling to lay down some practical resolutions (pft!).

For many, January is a time to redefine ourselves or our homes: clean out the garage, redecorate the living room, plan healthier meals, or hit the gym for a few days (a few weeks if you’re really determined); but for others, January is the time to buy a new motorcycle.

Planning in advance to buy a motorcycle can save your pockets some cash and give you time to research for the right bike. While riding is still at rest for most of the United States and people are more keen on saving rather than spending, January brings motorcycle prices you won’t see in the spring. After riding season is over, many bikers are ready to retire their ride and put it on the market; in the spring, enthusiasts looking for a new hobby start shopping and dealer prices begin to rise. Our advice, start looking around for that undeniable deal before Christmas then hit em with an offer after the New Year (while the rest of the world is working on their budget).
