Investing in a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle is an exciting time! Of course, you want to be sure you choose a model that’s going to match with your riding habits and personal style. It’s also important to do proper research, especially if you plan to buy a used motorcycle. At Great Lakes Harley-Davidson®, we want all our customers to feel confident in their used Harley purchase so we’ve put together some important information to help you in the buying process.
Always ask for proper documentation regarding the history of the bike like maintenance, service, repairs, and so on. You can get a good idea of what you’re dealing with by reviewing the bike’s history. There might not be anything visibly wrong with the used motorcycle but if there was a prior accident, you might have something to keep an eye on. After reviewing the history, it’s also recommended that you take it for a test ride. Make sure it feels good to ride and that you feel confident in your control.
Of course, everyone wants to find an affordable option when investing in a used Harley. These bikes are often far cheaper than buying a brand new bike, which means you’ll have money left to invest in any upgrades you might want for your motorcycle. Do your research and see the different price tags for the model that you’re interested in. Prices that are suspiciously high or low can be red flags so make sure you do your due diligence and ask for more information to avoid getting ripped off.
