Buyer's checklist - read this before you post a query

To help us give you the best advice when it comes to buying your next bike, give this post a few minutes of your time and use your answers as the basis for your forum query.

Budget: Break this down to include insurance and any kit you need, as well as the bike.

Style: Sports, sports tourer, naked, custom, adventure. There's a bike for every taste, what's the top three you're considering?

Annual mileage: Also when and where are you going to ride? A daily commute? Sunny Sundays only?

What's your riding experience? While you may want a brand new 1000cc sports bike, it's probably not wise if you've just passed your test.
