What You Must Know When Talking To Motorcycle Dealers?

Does getting a new motorcycle interests you? Almost everyone does actually; after all this is a nice way to explore the countryside or to save gas. On the other hand, if this is your first time to buying a motorcycle, then things can easily get frustrating and overwhelming given the fact that there are countless of dealers that you can find. For sure, you’ll be puzzled on where you should begin. Talking to a reliable dealer can help a lot in navigating through this process whether you believe it or not.

But just before you buy anything, it should be in your best interests to know the requirements that are set by your state in regards to driving a motorcycle legally on public road. It is not that easy to get a license because every state has different set of paperwork, requirements as well as testing that should be completed. You might also have to take training class to ride a motorcycle properly. Lucky for you as there are some motorcycle dealerships that’ll let you train using their own equipment. Just keep in mind that until your license is endorsed, you can’t go on public roads.

As soon as you receive your endorsement, it’s now time to head to reputable and trusted motorcycle dealer and look the motorcycles they have for you. Probably, you’ve been talking already to some salespeople so you know which dealerships to work on with.

If not, you might be surprised to find that salespersons working on the store are very accommodating and helpful in getting you the right bike.

They are the one who is going to help you find the most suitable motorcycle for your needs to make you feel comfortable and have easy time controlling it. Give it a test drive to know how it feels even if you are not sure of their recommendations. You may find that their advice is way better than what you got in mind. Experienced motorcycle shops ensure that the one they recommend is the best for you. You can think of getting a certain model but if your feet do not lay flat on ground when it is stopped, then it is simply too tall for you.

Not only the fact that they will help you choose the right motorcycle for sale, the salesperson will also tell you what accessories you need to make your ride safer. As an example, they may recommend to get helmet which meets industry standards, eyewear, safety garments like pants and jackets and so on. Typically, motorcycle dealers have these items for sale so you can be sure to get all the help you need.

Jay Leno’s Garage Showcases 1976 BMW 2002 from Bavarian Workshop

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(West Hills, CA) Founder of the Bavarian Workshop, Marc Norris, recently stopped by Jay Leno’s Garage with a 1976 BMW 2002 resto-mod. While this vehicle represents a “dream car” for many, finding on that is still in good condition is more challenging than ever before. While it takes time and money to restore a classic BMW 2002, it is well worth it according to Jay Leno.

“While the BMW 2002 was one of the main vehicles responsible for elevating the performance reputation of the German Brand in the United Sates, it was not the first BMW model available in the U.S.,” stated Marc Norris. “The powerful 2.0 liter four-cylinder and the light weight made this a combination that car enthusiasts could not ignore. Ultimately it served as the perfect platform for aftermarket upgrades down the road.”

The BMW 2002 featured on Jay Leno’s Garage had been overhauled by the Bavarian Workshop mechanics for a customer more than a decade ago. The client wanted to have their father’s car restored to original condition. Even though the vehicle sat for a number of years, never being driven, it was still in overall good condition and made a great platform for a full remodel. The Bavarian Workshop overhauled the vehicle and added a 2.3 liter 513 four cylinder out of a 1989 E30 M3, as well as a five-speed manual transmission.

“During the episode, viewers will have the opportunity to see what we were able to do with the interior of the vehicle, as well,” continued Norris. “We added seats from one of the newer model BMW 320i that was recovered in luxurious Nappa leather. We also used Dynamat in the trunk to help reduce some of the noise created. Even though it has much more horsepower, it still exudes the character of a traditional, 1970s era BMW thanks to my talented team.”

During the episode of Jay Lenos Garage, viewers will get to see Leno take this amazing vehicle for a spin. He also makes it clear that he is a huge fan of this car and that Norris’s team did a great job on the rebuild.
