others are in terms of handling, speed, luggage,
space and its overall appearance. Of course, these
factors, among many others, would generally be based
on your choice between the type of bike you thats
most preferable for your lifestyle and personality:
touring, sport-touring, sport, standard, cruiser,
enduro, dual-sport and off-road.
Each type also comes with its very own riding attitude
and of course, riding gears and accessories. Notice

forget your riding gears. Fashion statements can
really go hand-in-hand with motorcycle riding! -30-
