HANOVER, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Easter is just around the corner, the Pentecost and long spring days are sure to follow. The four-stroke engines are rumbling, freedom is in the air: The bikers are back! If you believe the motorcycle new registration numbers then in January and February 2014 together 43 percent more large motorcycles were registered in Germany than in the previous year during this time, which is an impressive 5,161 more motorcycles. BMW remains the leader of the pack with their flagship R 1200 GS, then Honda and in position 3 - for the large motorcycles - the American cult brand Harley Davidson which, with over 80 percent, registered the strongest growth. *
Fitting for the start of spring and just in time before the first big motorcycle tours of the year, the motorcycle dealers support all enthusiastic returning riders or new beginners, and everyone who loves the feeling of vitality that comes with being on two wheels.
Survey: Vouchers and more time to ride desired
In winter MotorradreifenDirekt.de asked 535 German motorcycle riders what their Christmas wishes were: As well as motorcycle-specific wishes such as new motorcycle tyres or tyre vouchers (20 percent) and good weather for the start of the season (13 percent), wishes that were motorcycle-independent were also at the forefront: Good health is the most important thing for every fourth biker, and as well as this the motorcycle and scooter riders would like freedom, rest and a little more time (altogether 16 percent) - naturally also to ride their motorcycles.
The fitting look for motorcycle tyres
Whether retro-chic in white wall look or classic: As well as the bricks and mortar shops, online shops which specialise in two-wheelers, such as www.MotorradreifenDirekt.de, also deliver the fitting tyres for the new favourite bike.
More fun at the start of the season: Pay attention to safety!
As well as glossy paintwork and the appropriate torque the topic of safety should also not be ignored when looking for the right bike. A technical check is also essential for the new Harley or Suzuki Inzuma 250 so that it can keep up the driving enjoyment promised: Are the brakes functional? The tyres undamaged, not porous and still have enough tread? Is the air pressure right?
If the tyres which are mounted have reached an age of five years or a minimum tread of 1.6 mm then they are due for renewal in the interest of safety. One’s own condition and responsiveness must also once again be retrained. “With new tyres we recommend a breaking in and familiarization period - this naturally also doesn’t hurt for the rider as well”, says Andreas Faulstich from MotorradreifenDirekt.de.
