How To Determine the Value Of My Motorcycle

Need a little of extra cash? Thinking of selling your old bike you don’t ride any more? Selling an old or used motorcycle is great way to make some quick cash, and make some space in your garage. Where to start though? If you’ve never bought a used motorcycle or have no idea on how to assess the value of it, read on. No matter if you’re selling a Honda Shadow vt 750, or a BMW S1000RR this article can help you determine its value.

Let us help you determine the value of your bike. Click here to see our free quote form.

First off people tend to want more for their bike because of sentimental attachment. We understand, you’ve spent time and money on your bike and therefore put a higher value on it. But you have to realize that even though you spent hours fixing and modding you bike it doesn’t mean that a dealer’s price will reflect that. If you need some basic help on what dealers look for in assessing your bike check out this article here.

One place to start is to look at the Kelley Blue Book value of the bike. These guys will give you base line value of what you can get for your make/model, but can’t account for things such as the wear and tear or any mods or replacements you may have made. Most dealers will go to this source to start when quoting for bikes.

Next we would recommend taking the bike to your friendly neighborhood mechanic and having them look the bike over. They will be able to not only help you assess any repairs you may need, but can also give you some advice on what you can do to increase your bikes value. They will be one of the best resources to you so you can increase the payback on your bike.

Another way to get a good idea of how much you bike is worth is to drop us a line and we can chat about what you bike could be worth. We will take care and time to properly assess your bike and the work that went into it. We want to make sure you’re satisfied with the price, and will talk with you about what you’ve done to your bike. So if you’re selling or looking to sell, click here for a free quote

Lane Splitting for Motorcycle Purchasers in Michigan

Lane sharing is a big issue this holiday season for all people looking to do motorcycle purchases in Michigan. Motorcyclists all over the United States are uniting to make motorcycle splitting legal across the country. Lane splitting is defined by a two wheeled vehicle moving between lanes of a road going in the same direction.

Currently lane splitting in California is not legal or illegal but many people still look to California and other countries to set a safe example. While the government of California does acknowledge that this practice does happen, they remind all California motorcyclists to assume that cars do not see them, avoid the blind spots of cars and large trucks, and to pay close attention to your speed to decrease the chances of crashes or injuries.

Legalizing lane sharing on all public roads will allow the government to regulate the way in which motorcyclists are able to pass cars. Regulation will minimize the problems that can occur from lane splitting and make it safe.

We want to know how you feel about lane sharing or splitting being legal in the United States. Tell us on Facebook.

Ride Safe in Michigan

It seems more and more we hear about tragic motorcycle accidents in Michigan as well as many other states across the country. In 2012 Michigan changed their helmet law making it the riders choice whether to wear a helmet while operating a motorcycle. And since the law has taken affect more and more motorcyclist continue to ride without a helmet, even after the increase in motorcycle tragedies.

Whether you think you are the best rider in the world or your are riding for the first time, always remember that motorcycle accidents are not always the rider’s fault. Often times car or truck drivers will not see a motorcyclist, whether it be because of a blind-spot or failure to pay attention. Regardless of who’s at fault, not wearing a helmet as a cyclist can make a difference between life or death.

As a fellow motorcyclist, I don’t say these things to scare you, but to stress the importance of riding safe in Michigan. Always be sure to be insured and wear a helmet!

Motorcycle Techniques

If you are an experienced motorcycle rider, you probably already know to check your tire pressure, signal lights, and oil levels before every ride. You may think that your riding abilities are great but if you haven’t rode all season long, your skills can soon become rusty. Every rider, new or old, needs a warm up or a work out to keep you fully aware and prepared for the road that lies before you. With preparation comes techniques. Following the two skills below will not only boost your confidence level but will be refreshing as well.

  1. At a friction zone, slow your speed down. This is usually used when turning around in parking lots, in city traffic, and on a highway to change direction. Your rear brake is applied to create a drag which then increases the stability of the motorcycle. Throttle at a constant level to create power then clutch the controls delivery of power to the rear wheel. Be sure that your upper body is relaxed amotorcycle-stunter-tyre-burnout-1301095-mnd that you don’t use the front brake while doing this.
  2. The sharp right turn technique is a challenge because you’re required to turn sharply in a smaller area such as a right lane. You have to be in control of your bike because this technique can throw you to the outside of your turn if you don’t avoid the power of your motorcycle. Make sure you manage your throttle to keep it smooth and aim for a 90 degree angle when turning. Extend your right elbow far away from your body to avoid elbow cramping and allow more space for you to maneuver your turn. After you turn, release the throttle completely and put your fingers back on the handlebar fully to grip. Position your feet back from the levers on the balls of your feet. Continue to practice this technique until perfected.

If you’re looking to buy a motorcycle or currently have an old motorcycle but want to try these techniques out on a newer bike, contact USA Automotive. We sell bikes of all brands and in many vibrant colors!

Properly Wash Your Motorcycle

Now that the weather is nice enough to pull your motorcycle out of the garage and give it a nice wash and wax, we have put together some tips on washing your own motorcycle. Some choose to wash their motorcycle after a short period of time, while others wait until the road dust, grease, or grime are visible. Regardless of how often you choose to wash your motorcycle here are some important tips!

Start by “assessing the damage”. How much of a mess do you really have on your hands. Is it just a little dusty from dirt and debris, or did you recently go off-roading through the mud? Based on the amount of dirt or type of dirt can help give you a place to start when selecting the proper tools and wash needed.

When getting started, ensure that your motorcycle engine is completely cool. Unlike a car, motorcycles have a lot of exposed engine parts, meaning they get just a dirty as the paint job on your bike. Make sure that the engine has at least cooled down enough to touch so you do not burn yourself. Your best bet would be ensuring that it is completely cool.

You don’t need any special water to avoid water marks being washing-motorcycleleft on your bike. Simply make sure you bike is cool and you do not wash in direct sunlight. The only thing you will want to ensure is that your cleaning solution/water mix is not highly acidic or does not contain a lot of alkaline as this can dull your paint or ruining the finish of your motorcycle.

Motorcycles are made to be resistant to water, but they are not waterproof. You will want to avoid high pressure water on the electronics, although a lighter spray is just fine. Here are some additional things you may want to have handy, other than your sponge and cleaning solution, to get a successful wash and detail on your bike.

  • Detail brush
  • Air compressor (to blow dust and dirt from crevices and help with drying)

Wait until your motorcycle is completely dry to determine if you want to do anything further. We recommend adding a wax to your motorcycle as it works like a sunscreen and helps prevent dullness in the paint. Whether you want to buff out small scratches or scuffs is 100% up to you.

If you have any question on properly caring for your motorcycle, contact the professionals. We will be happy to assist you in any way possible….but we wont do the washing for you!

Preparing to Ride Off-Road

Riding an off road motorcycle requires a lot of bike, body, riding and mental preparation. Before riding a dirt bike, you will want to ensure that it is clean and check to see if the nuts and bolts are in the right place so that it’s safe to ride. As far as your body preparation, you have to make sure you do enough cardio, strength, and flexibility training to help you maintain balance and stability while riding your bike. Being flexible also allows you to decrease injury rates. When preparing to ride your off-road motorcycle, learn the basics (i.e. speed and riding skills) so that you can become more familiar with the bike and the road…well the trails. Focus on your weaknesses more so than your strengths…this will help you become a better rider. Being confident and open minded prior to riding your off-road motorcycles helps you mentally because it keeps your mind centered on the road.

Being protected with the right gear is the number one priority when riding any type of motorcycle whether a cruiser, sport bike, dirt bike, or crotch rocket. USA Powersports even more so encourages you to wear helmets, goggles, body armor, gloves, and boots while riding an off-road motorcycle as the terrain is much more to handle than a paved road.

If you are interested in purchasing or financing an off-road motorcycle, contact us today! We promise to give you our best performance.

New Inventory Arriving At USA Powersports!

Have you ever made a couple consecutive trips to a store, maybe a clothing store or a toy store for the kids, looking for something in particular but noticed that their inventory just never seems to update or expand?

That can be a real drag when you have your eye on a product that you really want to buy. Not to mention, it forces the customer to look elsewhere for said product, which causes your business to LOSE business. This is why at USA Powersports, we make it a daily priority to add more and more motorcycles to our ever-growing inventory of used bikes, each and every day!

Just recently we were able to bolster our large selection of Harley-Davidson motorcyclessportster-2-332798-m by adding a 2009 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low (2k miles) and a 2012 Harley Davidson XL 1200 Sportster 72 (20 miles) to our inventory as some of our latest vehicles.

You could ask a non-motorcycle enthusiast of pretty much any age to name a brand of motorcycle and the first one that would come to their mind would probably be Harley Davidson. They are that well known in the U.S. and have established that much of a lasting reputation. That’s why we are always looking to buy gently used Harley Davidsons, because they are in such high demand.

The Dyna and the Sportster are both highly-regarded models of the classic Harley Davidson brand, there’s no denying that. So whether you want to buy a motorcycle with some miles on it like our Dyna, maybe as a starter bike, or pay a little more for a bike that is almost brand new like our Sportster, we’ve got you covered at USA Powersports. Just inquire about one of our motorcycles and we’ll get back to you at the drop of a dime!

These Harley Davidson bikes are just two of the many motorcycles we’re welcoming into our store in Dundee, MI this month, along with many others that we’ve bought recently and many more to come this year! As always, we accept trade-ins for motorcycles if you don’t think you can pay for the bike completely out of pocket. Feel free to browse our new inventory and contact us today with any questions or concerns!
