    Tips for Choosing New Motorcycle Tires

    Last updated 1 day 21 hours ago

    The performance of your Harley-Davidson® motorcycle depends on a number of factors. The type and condition of your tires are among the most important. The following advice will help you choose tires that are appropriate for your Harley-Davidson® model and will help you take on the streets in the fashion that best appeals to you.

    Do Your Research

    If you have yet to find the perfect tires for your bike, spend some time researching your tire options. Read up on the advantages and disadvantages of various tire types and sizes, and check out the reputations of various tire manufacturers. This should give you a foundation that can help simplify your search.

    Shop for Your Bike

    Further narrow down your options by ruling out all tires that are not designated as appropriate for your motorcycle. If you purchased your bike new or certified pre-owned from an authorized Harley-Davidson® dealer, it should have come with tires that were designed to fit your bike’s wheels. Choosing tires that are compatible with your wheels is important from a safety standpoint. It also promotes longevity and better performance.

    Consider Your Style

    What’s your riding style? On what types of roads do you most frequently cruise? Answering these questions can help you zero in on the material composition, weight, firmness, and tread depth that will best suit you. If you plan to take long rides, for example, prioritize features that will make riding more comfortable, such as softer tires.

    Motorcycle Safety Tips for New Harley-Davidson Owners

    Last updated 1 month ago

    If you want to add excitement to your life and enjoy the open road atop one of the most iconic motorcycles in the world, nothing beats buying a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle. But while a new Harley-Davidson is good for big thrills and big smiles, motorcycles aren’t as safe as passenger vehicles. To make sure that you can enjoy your new Harley-Davidson and make it home safely each time you ride, follow these essential motorcycle safety tips.

    Refine Your Skills

    If you are a novice motorcycle rider, we recommend that you find a Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) riding course in your area or a similar class to learn the basics and more advanced techniques, such as how to perform evasive emergency maneuvers. Taking an approved motorcycle safety course may also make you eligible for an insurance discount.

    Protect Your Head

    There’s a lot of safety gear that can keep you safe in the event of an accident, but nothing is more important than wearing a helmet. Riders without a helmet are 40 percent more likely to suffer a fatal head injury in a crash and three times more likely to suffer brain injuries than those with helmets. Look for a full-face helmet that’s approved by the Department of Transportation to minimize your risk of head injury in the event of an accident.

    Ride Defensively

    According to a recent study by the University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research, in collision involving a motorcycle and a car, car drivers were at fault 60 percent of the time. This means that motorcyclists need to be extra alert and cautious. Keep a safe following distance, especially at high speeds, and keep an eye out for cars suddenly changing lanes or pulling out from side streets.

    With these safety tips in mind, come to Harley-Davidson of Ocean County in Lakewood, NJ and find the perfect new or used Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Our dealership is also your source for Harley-Davidson parts and service. If you have any questions, please call us at (732) 719-3196. 

    A Look at the 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Harley-Davidson motorcycles have always conquered the urban world, but few make quite the same statement as the 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750 while doing it. The all-new 750 is a powerful and head-turning street bike from the motorcycle company that put American street bikes on the map, evoking the old-school cool of a 1970’s XLCR with its narrow stance and café racer inspired speed screen. Here is your first look at the upcoming Street 750 before it arrives at Harley-Davidson dealers nationwide.

    Low-Speed Maneuverability

    Low speeds are a true test of a rider’s skill and a motorcycle’s handling characteristics, especially for city bikes like the Street 750. Fortunately, the rake and trail angles on the front end of the new 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750 are optimized for low-speed maneuverability. So whether you’re trying to find a spot to park on a busy street or making your way through tight alleys, the 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750 gives you a predictable ride and the confidence that comes with it.

    Specially-Tuned Shocks

    The Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle features specially-tuned shocks for a smooth ride and excellent handling. These custom shocks are dialed in for the weight of the bike, the geometry of the frame, the position of the ride, and for the rough urban pavement you’re going to encounter every day.

    Fully Customizable Design 

    As strange as it may sound, the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 wasn’t designed to be completely finished when it rolls out of the factory. Instead, it was designed to be the ultimate platform for you to express your own custom style and attitude. Your Harley-Davidson dealer can show you a whole range of accessories for customizing your very own Street 750.

    Come to Harley-Davidson of Ocean County for additional information about the 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750. Located in Lakewood, NJ, we are the leading Harley-Davidson dealer in the Tri-State area. Contact us online or call us today at (732) 719-3196 to learn more.
