Determine what type of bike you want
There are different types of motocross bikes and you have to determine what exactly you want. Other than the suspension, strokes, weight and other things, you have to decide whether you want a new or a used bike. Moreover, you have to keep your own weight and experience into account.
Test a motocross bike
Go to a local motocross bike shop and get some information regarding different bikes from a professional. You will get some very good recommendations and will get the option to test a bike.
Note price and features of the bikes
At the shop, you will see different motocross bikes in different price ranges. Note them down and write down the features, as that will help you make a very good comparison.
Find bikes for sale
You can also see some bikes for sale, as that will help you save a lot of money. The best way of doing so is searching the internet. You will find some very good options, if there are some available.
Take a friend alongside
When you have decided to make the purchase, take one of your friends alongside. This way, you will be able to make a better deal. Your friend might end up noticing a special feature, which you have ignored.
Ask questions about the bike
Make sure you ask as many questions as possible to the bike seller before finalising the deal.
Make the payment
Once you have got the answers from the seller, make the payment to the seller and get the contract of transfer from him/her. You can either pay cash to the bike owner or make the payment through check. If you are ordering online, you can use your PayPal account.
