Subscribe: RSSIn this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I share my 8 rules for selecting your first, or next, motorcycle. Follow these steps and avoid the pitfalls of buying a motorcycle that you later hate.
The guidelines explained here work perfectly for selecting your second motorcycle, your third motorcycle… or your tenth motorcycle.
These are the same rules I follow every time I purchase a motorcycle.
More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:
- My 8 rules to follow every time you purchase a motorcycle.
- Why $4000 is my sweet spot for a used motorcycle.
- Why some new motorcycle models aren’t displayed in motorcycle dealerships.
- Why understanding the 8 categories of motorcycles and selecting the one that best fits your riding goals is the most difficult, yet most important part to get ‘right’.
- How to enjoy the process of selecting and purchasing your next motorcycle.
Resources and links mentioned in this session:
- I am working on the training course that I mentioned in the podcast. If you have specific questions about buying or selling a motorcycle using eBay, Craigslist or CycleTrader, post them below and I will answer them.
- Where’s the video showing how to see completed auctions on eBay? I should have that completed and posted here in the next week or so.

Great podcast! Thanks. I’m about to get my first bike at age 46. Looking to get a Honda ST1100 for a do everything, go anywhere, year-round machine. Not a beginner’s bike, I know, but I’m in the Netherlands so I have to get a lot of compulsory training before hitting the road on two wheels. Besides, I have nothing to prove
