There are basically two ways to obtain motorcycle values:

1.- Inrepparttar books

2.- Inrepparttar 102730 market


Inrepparttar 102731 United Statesrepparttar 102732 two main pricing guides are:repparttar 102733 Kelley Blue Book andrepparttar 102734 N.A.D.A. guides.

Personally I like very muchrepparttar 102735 N.A.D.A. guides. They give faithful information about almost every motor vehicle produced since 1933, and several configuration options to help you get an accurate value of your motorcycle orrepparttar 102736 one you want to buy.

The National Automobile Dealers Association (N.A.D.A.) is nowadaysrepparttar 102737 largest publisher of Appraisal Guides inrepparttar 102738 world. Their guides provide information for most ofrepparttar 102739 motor vehicles ever made: cars, motorcycles, boats, recreation vehicles and more. Since 1933, N.A.D.A. has been helping buyers to make informative, responsible and safe decisions when buying motor vehicles.

The Motorcycle Helmet You Want May Not Be As Safe As You Think!

Written by Michael Holmes

Choosingrepparttar right Motorcycle helmet can make a difference….

….literally between life and death. But how does an ordinary guy inrepparttar 102729 street make an informed decision about what kind of helmets giverepparttar 102730 best protection? There are so many makes, models and styles. Not to mention DOT approved, Snell approved, ECE approved! It is enough to make you go goggle eyed when confronted with so much information.

Tests have shown that it is perfectly possible to suffer a fatal injury falling off a stationary bike if you hit your unprotected head onrepparttar 102731 kerb, so clearly choosingrepparttar 102732 right helmet is important.

But which one?

Wouldn’t it be easier if someone just said, “Look, when you are in a crash, you need to protect this part of you head, because this isrepparttar 102733 part that is most likely to get hurt”…

Well that’s what I thought. But it wasn’t that easy. The kind of information you need to make that kind of call requires someone, somewhere to look at a whole bunch of motorcycle crashes, look atrepparttar 102734 motorcycle helmet damage, assess where point of impact occurred and putrepparttar 102735 information into a form that allows ordinary motorcyclists (like you and me) to make a decision for themselves.

However,repparttar 102736 good news is that if you look hard enough,repparttar 102737 information is available. A study was carried out a few years ago by Deitmar Otte, atrepparttar 102738 Medizinsche Hochschule in Hannover, Germany onrepparttar 102739 damage incurred to helmets worn by motorcyclists involved in accidents. His analysis was extremely detailed; in fact it was far to detailed for me to go into here, but it was extremely important.

What I am going to do is tell you in a nutshell, what parts of your head are most likely to be hurt in a motorcycle accident, based on Herr Otte’s findings. The rest is up to you…
