5 Best Motorcycles (City, Tour, Racing) & Who Should Buy What

Motorcycles fill me with Adventure. I feel like I am flying. Motorcycles are my love, my passion. I personally have a Royal Enfield 350 Thunderbird and believe me I am incomplete love without her. I have even named her as ‘Truckee’! Look at the beauty below (Let me know your motorcycle name is the comments below). My Thunderbird

Motorcycles been in my family for long time. Both my maternal uncle (Mama ji) had modified Yezdi Java and Rajdoot they were hard-core bikers. Seriously those bike were best in the class and were well maintained. My maternal uncle use to tell me stories about their bike rides. The funny part is that I’ve been in 1 or 2 accidents while seating behind them. I remember holing the tank and the handle bar of Yezdi motorcycle when I use to sit in-front while going to school. Those were the best days.

I am a member of Motorcycle Club India & WOW Delhi. I’ve been to couple of places with them. Learnt so much about riding the motorcycles and road etiquettes.
[I will soon write An Articles on motorcycle groups in India]
In many instance my friends and people who know me asked my suggestion while buying a motorcycle. I must tell its one of the most difficult job as everyone has a different taste and body structure according to which they should choose their bike. Therefore I am sharing this article which can help all the buyers planning to get a new motorcycle. The list is according to my choice, if you want you can simple ask me to add a motorcycle in the comments section below.

Though anyone can ride any motorcycle but it’s important to judge yourself on comfort and style over choice of motorcycle.

For example: if you have a short height and want to ride thunderbird. You won’t be comfortable as it will be difficult for your legs to reach the ground every time you stop.
