"I've taken my rider course, now what?"
Empire Harley-Davidson® is convenient to anyone looking for information about Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Stop by our dealership in New Rochelle, New York and let a motorcycle specialist know you're a new rider. They will help you select the right bike for your size, leg length and style.
The bike you should choose depends on the kind of riding you will be doing. Will you be touring, cruising, doing light highway riding, or just riding around town? Cruisers are made for relaxed, laid back riding. Explain to your Harley-Davidson® salesman what your riding preference is, and talk to them about your skill level.
The Harley-Davidson® fit specialists at Empire Harley-Davidson® will help you choose a bike that also takes into account how big the rider is.
A smaller person might choose a sportster, which may work great for someone less than 170 pounds and under 5 feet 7 inches tall, but sportier bikes may not be the best bike for a beginner. The first bike should be one that is not so much designed for sportiness and speed but one that will allow you to get familiar with riding, safely and comfortably.
The Dyna and Softail are good middleweight bikes for beginners. Even though the Softail is bigger than the Dyna, they both are small enough to handle with ease; yet, heavy enough to have stability.
