Things to Consider Before Buying a Two-Wheeler

 Whether you have always been a car driver, or you are looking to purchase a vehicle for the first time, there are a few things that you need to know before purchasing a two-wheeler. To help you make a more informed decision about this tricky decision, below are some pointers to give you some food for thought before you go out and buy a two-wheeler. 

Scooter or Motorbike 

Your first choice is to decide between a scooter or a motorbike. Scooters are a good option for beginners as they are easy to handle and drive. They are also less powerful and therefore less intimidating for newbies. A wide range of options are available on sites like You will also find them to be on the cheaper end of the scale, both in terms of the initial purchase price and the running costs. On the other hand, with a motorbike, these are more powerful and better over longer distances. However, they do take some training to be able to ride properly.

Check Out the Different Brands 

Now that you have a better idea of whether you are going to buy a scooter or a motorbike, it is time to check out the different brands out there. Of course, some of the top end options are going to come with a high price tag attached, so you need to make your decision based on your budget as well as everything else. At the same time, when you buy an established brand, you have a better sense that you are investing in quality. You are also more likely to up the resale value of your vehicle.

Inspect the Vehicle 

When you have a better idea of the brand and model, you should check out the scooters or motorbikes themselves. It isn’t worth getting one ‘blind’. If you are buying a second-hand vehicle, it is particularly important that you check details such as the mileage, as well as the weight and height of the vehicle. It is also a good idea to take out your chosen vehicle for a test drive to ensure that you can handle it properly. If it is too heavy or high, this can end up having a negative impact on your ability to ride the scooter.

Maintenance and Service Options 

Before you commit to buying a vehicle, it is worth asking all the questions that put your mind at ease, and this includes inquiring about the maintenance and service options. You want to know how much you are likely to pay for servicing and check-ups. Also, you want to know where your nearest service center is as you want to be able to access maintenance work without too much trouble.

As you can see from this article, there is plenty to consider when you commit to buying a two-wheeled vehicle, starting with choosing a scooter or a motorbike. You then have to check out the brands, inspect the vehicles, and inquire about servicing.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits.
