The best rider is an informed one. Before you make a major purchase, you want to know if the power output is what you're looking for and if the seating position fits your frame. You also probably want to experience whether a cruiser, sport, touring or standard model is best for the type of riding you do the most of.

How to Get The Most Out of Your Dallas Harley Test Ride

If you've never test ridden a motorcycle before, you may be wondering what you're looking for. Harley® is about individuality, especially when it comes to buying a bike. You want to find the one that looks and feels like it was made for you. 

Before Your Test Ride

We see riders of all skill levels at Harley-Davidson® of Dallas in Allen Texas. If you just got your motorcycle license, we're excited for you. Plus, we're happy to answer questions you have about getting started. Don't worry about asking things a more seasoned rider wouldn't. Everyone feels a little nervous when they're first getting on a new bike. That's healthy.

Familiarize yourself with the bike's seat height, handlebar position, foot peg position, brakes and clutch before you start. If something doesn't feel or work right, ask questions. This could keep you from getting hurt or damaging the bike.

During Your Motorcycle Test Ride

This is where the exhiliration hits. You're probably going to know pretty quickly if you're falling in love with the bike. There are a few things professional motorcycle testers focus on to evaluate:

  • The engine - how does it idle, vibrate, sound and feel through the footpegs, seat and handlebars
  • Performance - Ride like you do every day. How does it respond to the throttle as you change gears? 
  • Starts and stops - Are the brakes what you're comfortable with? 
  • Handling - Navigate a pothole or two. Take a corner and see how it feels

After Your Test Ride

If you're test riding more than one, take a minute between to summarize for yourself what you liked and disliked about each bike. Talk to your associate, since sometimes we can make fixes on the spot like trying a different seat or making simple adjustments. If you're interested but not sure how it fits your budget, our finance department is the best in the area.
