About This Quiz

Whether you are a long time motorcycle owner or you are just thinking about jumping on the two-wheeled game, this is the quiz for you! By taking a look at your driving habits, your motorcycle knowledge, and a little of your personality, we'll be able to pair you with the motorcycle you should really own. Will it be that Harley you've been dreaming of, or will it be an old school Indian? 

Finding out what motorcycle you should really own is not a task to be taken lightly. If you are going to cruise down the open road without a seatbelt or a cage, you need to be on the bike meant for you to ride! There's nothing like the freedom of the open road, but you should make the most of it by being on a motorcycle that was seemingly built for you. Once we are sure we know your level of road knowledge, we'll match you with the bike you should park in your garage. 

Don't forget to wear your helmet as you cruise through this quiz, as we might pop a few wheelies for fun! But by the time we're done, you'll know what motorcycle you should be riding!
