Pedestrians and cyclists are treated as first-class citizens on Norwegian roads. Cars and motorcycles have to slow down or come to a stop when these sets of people require the road. However, this does not mean that cars and motorcycles do not enjoy the road. In fact, Norwegian roads are one of the best roads to drive on in the world. You only have to make sure to follow the rules to avoid accidents.

A motorcycle is a treasure to have. It has this feeling of freedom that you cannot get with a car or a bicycle—a car has its wall, and a bicycle is not as fast. However, make sure to drive carefully on your motorcycle—do not overspeed.

What should you do before buying your motorcycle?

Buying a bike is a big deal in Norway. It is not something you should just do, as it is a process that requires extensive planning. Somethings you should do before you buy that bike are:

  1. Research the different types of bikes, and pick the best fit for you

There are several motorcycles out there, and each of them has its peculiarities. Some may fit you as a ride, while others are not good for you. The first step you must accomplish is to research the bikes around, their capacity, and size, and then pick the best one for you.  Some bikes also have a specific purpose. Therefore, make sure to pick the one that will suit your purpose.

  1. Ask yourself what your driving goals are

What do you want to use the bike for? Do you want to use it as a sports bike or to tour an area in Norway? Your reason for buying the bike will also determine what bike you need to buy. Think about the things you want to achieve with the bike and the roads you will play with. When you have your goals down, you have gotten one step closer to getting the perfect bike.

  1. Check if the bike is your fit

Can you handle the bike’s size? If you are not comfortable with the size of the bike, you should not go for it. Check the seat height, saddle shape, weight, suspension, among other things. When you get a bike that your body is very comfortable with, you will have better control over it.

  1. Check the papers

Ensure that you vet the bike’s papers before buying it, especially if you are buying a used vehicle. Check for the vehicle’s identification number and other registration qualifications that your bike must have before you buy it. If you notice any reluctance from the seller, you should put on your vigilant cap and walk away from the deal. You can also do your civil duty and invite the police if you notice anything strange.

  1. Make sure to get insurance

Insurance is a must when you buy a motorcycle in Norway, especially third-party insurance. An insurance policy will sort you out in case of any unplanned emergency. It should cover bodily injury and damages to property. You should also make sure that it covers you when there is a collision between you and something.

Buying a bike can be intimidating, but if you put enough thought into the process, you will deal with a great deal.
