Rocket: What are the advantages of buying a motorcycle over buying a car?
I’m thinking about buying a bike. I already have two cars but I’ll probably make the bike my main source of transportation after I buy it though. I was also wondering if anyone had any recommendations on which bike to buy for my first. I like the sportier look but I don’t mind the “cool” of a Harley.

Advantages: GAS !!!! My dad before he passed rode his motorcycle to work every day it did not rain and once he rode it for 2 months straight, he only had to fill the tank up 2 maybe 3 times. Buy whatever one you want. It’s your bike afterall and you’re the one going to be driving on it.
well, a motorcycle would deff be better on gas! looks cooler, sounds cooler, probably more exciting to ride, and ud probably pick up girls on it hahaAnswer by andrew k

A bike in lieu of a car will save money. A bike in addition to a car will cost money.
A bike can be a toy or transportation. As a toy a motorcycle is far, far superior to any car. A transportation it is cheaper, but you are exposed to the weather, which can be a hassle.
For me, the advantage of a motorcycle is that I do not have to sit in a a cage. If you don’t mind being in a cage, that is not an advantage.Answer by raidrunner

if you want a ‘sport’ bike made after 95 id go with a kawasaki ex(ninja) 250/500, suzuki gs500, or a buell blast(all these are standard ish). you WILL drop your first bike, buy used, then sell it again. some of the older higher displacement bikes may also be good starter bikes, however parts may not be as readily available.
take a msf course if your not sure, you really want to ride, burn, sweat, freeze, drip.
i do not know about cruisers, however good luck finding a harley for less than 10kAnswer by JayJay
If it’s not a Harley, you can park most smaller bikes anywhere. Big cruisers take up a whole parking space and have to pay for parking. I never pay for parking my smaller 2-wheeler since it easily fits tiny off-road spaces. Big cruisers also use the same amount of gas as a car, so no saving there. Same with insurance. You’ll get big gas and insurance savings with a 250cc.
