One of the important changes you'll have to make when you first decide to ride is what motorcycle you should buy first. Usually, it's best to start with a bike that is designated as a starter motorcycle. This will ensure that it is easy to maneuver and learn to ride on. In the past, I've written articles about buying your first bike, but I thought it'd be a good idea to pull together a short list of articles from authoritative sources that provide similar information. Here are a few great articles.
Digital Trends isn't exactly known for motorcycle-related content, but this guide is especially helpful and very comprehensive. It gets into the different types of bikes as well as what a beginner should look for.
If you're looking for a very comprehensive guide minus all of the great images and flare that the Digital Trends page offers, DMV.org is a great resource. The site's article on choosing a motorcycle is informative and wastes no time getting to the important stuff.
Motorcycle.com offers an opinion from writer Pete Brissette on what bikes make good starter bikes. Pete picks five bikes and explains why they make good starter motorcycles. He also discusses what makes a good starter bike and how one bike doesn't fit all people. This is very true and extremely important to understand.
