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 bmgscooters.com. 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.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
