Cost Vs. Worth
So my last post I brought up the example of the Honda Grom. I think this motorcycle is WORTH loads more than it’s cost. You as a beginner need to decide the balance. Is spending thousands of dollars on a COSTly motorcycle WORTH the investment as a first bike? For some people the answer is yes because they like to flex their wallet and tell people that their first bike was a Ducati or MV. For others, like me, the point of your first bike is to beat the
S*!T out of and get one that is worth while. The Grom is the PERFECT bike for this along with the Kawasaki Z125 pro. An inexpensive motorcycle allows you to…
- have a bike in the first place
- not have to worry about if it gets a scratch in it
- not have to worry about if it leaks a little
- not have to worry about a million other things that someone owning a “nice” bike would have to worry about.
Point is, get a bike that you don’t have to worry about and still have fun with. Next post will finally be a real review of a motorcycle, the H-D Iron 883, my first brand new bike I ever bought.
