Buying a bike
Picking out a bike is a very personal choice. We recommend you visit dealerships, sit on all the bikes, and test drive the ones you feel fit you the best. Look for/pay attention to seat height, feet flat on the ground, arm reach, and windshield height is below eye level. Remember, you can always change anything. Some common upgrades are windshield, saddlebags, relocate foot controls, heated grips, footboards instead of pegs, music input and speakers, trickle charger/battery connection.
