Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are built to last, so you can feel positive about your decision to purchase one.

Riding a motorcycle is all about being able to balance yourself. Because motorcycle riders come in all shapes and sizes, so do motorcycle models. Harley-Davidson® makes motorcycles to accommodate riders of all heights and weights. We encourage you to come in and take some of our models out for a test ride to familiarize yourself with them and to ensure your comfort level!
Financing can be a tricky subject. You can check with your bank before you walk into a dealership to get a general idea about financing with your current credit. Generally, the more cash you can put down upfront or the better your credit score is, the lower your monthly payments will be under your financing terms. You should also check with our financing department to see if we can offer you a better deal than your bank. If you’re aren’t especially concerned about buying the newest model of motorcycle, you can usually find a better deal on a dealership’s leftover inventory from previous years. These models still come with desirable features and full manufacturer’s warranties for your peace of mind.
Whenever you’re ready to buy! One thing to consider: Will you be riding your new motorcycle home, or will you need someone with a truck or trailer to transport it for you? Remember, you’ll need to have a valid driver’s license with a motorcycle endorsement on file to test ride here or to ride your new motorcycle home. To get a motorcycle endorsement, you need to be at least 16 years old, and you’ll need to complete a vision screening, as well as a motorcycle safety course or a motorcycle road test and written exam. If you’re under 18, you’ll need to get a motorcycle permit first.
Regardless of which model of Harley-Davidson® you choose, full insurance coverage is required if you’re financing your purchase. Be sure to shop around various insurance providers to get the best quote. If you’re interested in keeping your insurance premiums as low as possible, many providers offer discounts if you complete a motorcycle riding course. You may want to ask about including your motorcycle gear and accessories under your policy, as the costs of replacing those can be staggering. Gap coverage is also recommended because it helps cover the gap between how much your motorcycle is worth and how much you owe while financing it.

Here are a few general tips about buying a used motorcycle from our experts:
- Examine It Cold – You can often tell more about a bike’s condition when it’s cold than you can during the test drive. If the bike has issues starting, that’s generally not a good sign!
- Look Past the Odometer – While mileage is of concern when purchasing a used motorcycle, it’s not the only factor to take into consideration. You should be prepared to inspect its general appearance, frame, exhaust, engine, clutch, fuel tank, suspension, brakes, tires, and even its oil for signs of rust or corrosion or previous repair work.
- Go to a Reputable Dealership – While you may find what appears to be a better deal listed on Craig’s List, is it really a better deal if you end up needing more repair work done on your bike? Our Harley-Davidson® dealership is well-trusted and respected within our community.
- Always Check the VIN – Your motorcycle’s vehicle identification number (VIN) is a useful source of information about its overall condition and history.
- Don’t Be Afraid to Negotiate – Ask yourself how much you’re willing to pay for the used motorcycle in question, weighing this against how much it’s worth. Don’t be afraid to negotiate for a lower selling price. You’ll never know until you ask!
Your motorcycle’s VIN is typically found either below the handlebars along its steering neck or on the bottom close to its cylinders. A VIN is a combination of 17 numbers and letters used to look up information about the motorcycle’s history and condition. When buying a pre-owned Harley-Davidson®, it’s customary to check the VIN to see if it’s been in any severe accidents or has had any major work done on it. You should also be able to see when the last inspection was completed. This info could help you have a bargaining chip to get the final sales price reduced.
This isn’t uncommon when purchasing a pre-owned Harley-Davidson®. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) didn’t require 17-digit vehicle identification numbers until 1981, so if your motorcycle predates 1981, it will likely have fewer characters.
First, we recommend that you doublecheck what you typed carefully. It’s worth noting that your VIN will never have the letters I, Q, or O in it so they can’t be confused with the numbers 1 and 0. Your motorcycle could be so outdated that it doesn’t have a VIN, although this isn’t usually the case. It’s more likely that it’s outside your data provider’s network or has multiple models available. You could do a Google search or check the Harley-Davidson® website to be sure. If the VIN is wrong, you’ll need to contact Harley-Davidson® to get it corrected.
