A GUIDE to buying and owning your first motorbike has been announced, claiming to offer a one-stop shop for all the key information a new rider could want.
‘Motorcycles – A first-time buyer’s guide’ aims to simplify the potentially daunting process of buying a motorcycle and features a section giving tips on the advantages and disadvantages of buying through different routes including second hand from a private seller, new through a dealer and all the choices in between.
The book has been written by former Motorcycle Sport & Leisure editor Peter Henshaw, a man with huge experience of all things on two wheels.
It claims to use clear, jargon-free text to explain what to look for when buying a bike, the pros and cons to consider before buying, clothing, finance, warranties, security, maintenance and tips on where to ride.
There is also advice on training options, both before and after the standard test process.
According to a press release accompanying the announcement of the book, “This book has the answers you need, taking the first-time biker through the whole experience, from deciding to ride, to how to get the most out of your bike.”
