Which Motorbike Type is Right for You?

Posted on 8 May, 2017 at 10:17 Comments comments (327)
There are plenty of choices when you go shopping for a motorbike and whether you buy a new or used model, the first thing you are going to have to decide is the type of bike you prefer. If you already know what type of bike you want, that’s fine, go ahead and enjoy your new purchase. On the other hand, if you are looking at your options at the moment, it could be worth exploring all of the different styles available for your own peace of mind. To make things easier, here’s a quick guide to different bike types to help you choose.  

Cheap to run and insure due to their small engine size, scooters are perfect if you want a nippy little bike to commute through busy city streets. You won’t exactly get the same level of performance as you would from bigger bikes, but scooters are easy to ride and won’t exactly break the bank when it comes to operating costs.  You could buy a retro Lambretta or enjoy the unrivalled handling of a modern Vespa and let it become part of your lifestyle.

Naked Bikes

Fans of the stripped-back look will instantly be drawn to naked bikes, or machines without fairings to give them a proper introduction. Bikes in this range include the Kawasaki Z1000 and the Suzuki GSX-S1000, stunning machines blessed with aggressive looks and sinister styling. If you are a fan of the retro styling, a naked bike could be just what you are looking for and in recent times unfaired models have enjoyed somewhat of a boom in the motorcycling sector.    
Sports Bikes

If all out speed and brutal acceleration are top of your list, take a look at the latest sports bike designs available right now. Blessed with advanced bike technology, you can take these machines to track days and really unleash the power, whilst getting the most from their savage acceleration and optimum handling.  Models like the Suzuki GSX-R 750 and the Ducati SuperSport are popular bikes in this category.

Adventure Sport Bikes

Want to take your bike on an off-road adventure and mirror the antics of Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman? Buy yourself an adventure bike and enjoy the ultimate off the road experience as you tackle a range of challenging surfaces. Big, durable and powerful, bikes such as Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin are firm favourites in the off-road market.    

Touring Bikes

As the name suggests, bikes in this category are designed specifically for touring and built with comfort in mind. Capable of covering long distances, luxury tourers such as Honda’s Gold Wing offer the highest levels of refinement and power. With larger engines and delivering smooth power outputs, riders suffer less fatigue and can cover greater distances on this type of bike. If you plan on covering a large mileage and want to tour in style, this is the option for you.

Custom Bikes

In this category, you will also cruisers, especially models from the legendary Harley-Davidson brand. Many of these have lower seats, longer wheelbases and plenty of chrome features, meaning you can cruise in style. Within the custom bike range, you might also find café racer style bikes designed with fans of retro in mind, including BMW’s R80 and Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber, with its very distinctive post-war styling.
Whatever style of bike you prefer, whether you are new to biking or a seasoned rider, there is sure to be the perfect bike out there waiting for you. Should you purchase a bike and need it collecting in Bristol or anywhere in the UK, don’t hesitate to contact us here at ACE Services. You can book a bike delivery with us today by calling 07742940422.

Make It Easier to Buy Motorcycle Insurance By Doing This

Posted on 13 March, 2017 at 9:54 Comments comments (274)
Have a new or used motorbike delivered to your home by us here at Ace Services Bristol and it’s a good idea to shop around for insurance to save yourself a stash of cash. There are deals out there if you are prepared to do a little research and it’ll save time and hassle if you have specific details about the following handy, whether you call insurance brokers for a quotes or use online comparison sites.

Background information
Insurers will need to know the date you passed your bike test so make sure you have this detail handy. They’ll also want to know if you have any proof of no claims discounts which can lower the cost of bike insurance, plus they’ll also inquire if your licence is clean, you have any convictions, or you have any points pending that haven’t been put on the licence yet. 

Type of cover
Do you want to pay for third party, fire and theft or can you pay a little extra for fully comprehensive insurance? The cost of bike insurance can vary greatly depending on the level of cover that you want. Decide this and the insurers will also want to know:

·         When do you want the cover to start?
·         Are you prepared to pay an excess?
·         Do you want to protect your no claims discount?
·         Will you need legal cover?
·         Would you like your helmet, boots and rider clothing insured?
·         Will you be taking the bike abroad? 
·         Is this your main mode of transport?

Details about you
Be prepared to provide details of your age, home address and occupation when asked. The insurance company will ask you the amount of mileage you are likely to cover over the next year and they will also ask you if you use the bike just for pleasure purposes or whether you use it to commute to work. As well as this, you will be asked where the motorcycle is stored at night and whether you garage it or not.  

A bit about your bike   
It’s not just you the insurers will want to know about. They will also ask you specific questions about your motorbike such as the make, model and registration, plus the estimated value of the machine. You will have to declare if you have made any modifications to the bike such as engine tweaks, a sports exhaust or a custom paint job that could make the bike more appealing to thieves. Plus you will also be asked if there is any security fitted to the motorbike. Fit an insurance approved security system and this can lower the cost of your policy. 

It’s important to have bike insurance in place before you take delivery of a new or used motorbike. Don’t worry about the safety of your bike if you arrange for us to collect it and deliver it for you here at Ace Services Bristol. As the leading bike transportation service in Bristol, we always treat our customers’ motorbikes with the greatest care and look after them during their travels.

Make Sure Your Motorcycle Delivery Service Does All Of This!

Posted on 24 January, 2017 at 10:03 Comments comments (99)
Choosing a motorcycle delivery service might seem easy but there’s a lot to consider before you entrust a total stranger with the transportation of your bike. As experts in short notice motorcycle collections and deliveries in Bristol, we know how worrying it can be when you need a motorbike delivering, and how scary the whole process might seem. Fear not, though. At ACE Services Bristol we understand exactly how you feel, so here are some suggestions to make this process easier for you.

How secure will the motorbike be?

One of the biggest concerns you will have when your bike is being transported is how secure the machine is during its travels. Ideally, the front wheel should be locked into a wheel stand to keep the bike upright, and soft straps should be used to prevent the bike from moving. This is something we wouldn’t think twice about here at Ace Services Bristol, your bike is totally secure when it’s under our care.    
What techniques are used to load the bike?

Getting a motorbike safely into the back of a van takes due care and attention. This should be achieved by rolling the bike up a ramp or by using a motorised winch. We always use a wide ramp here at ACE Services for safety’s sake, one that is capable of handling any sized motorbike. Always check to make sure your bike is going to be loaded correctly to prevent any damage occurring.  

Is the motorbike monitored during transport?

Loading and securing a motorbike into place is one thing. Keeping a close eye on it is something else. Under no circumstances should your bike be left unattended at any time, you never know what might happen to it. As a dedicated bike delivery service, we would never consider letting a motorbike out of our sight once it’s in our charge.  

If the motorbike is being collected on your behalf, how will you know everything is okay?

Sometimes it’s easier to arrange the collection of a motorbike without actually being there in person. If the motorbike is in another part of the country for example, you might be happy for a collection service to pick up the bike on your behalf. Take this approach and you should expect a phone call from the transportation service once they arrive at the collection point. This way you can establish all of the relevant documentation comes with the motorcycle and also get the collection driver to confirm the condition of the bike to you. 

How local is the motorcycle delivery company to you?

Is the motorbike delivery service close to you and do they have good access to major motorways and arterial roads? As one of the leading motorcycle collection services in Bristol, we are just a short drive away from the M4 motorway here at Ace Services and have a sound knowledge of the main motorway networks in the UK.   

Follow these tips and trust your own senses when you are choosing a motorcycle transportation service. Whether you want a bike collecting, or need a scooter delivering in Bristol, we can assist you here at Ace Services. Call today on 07742940422 for a prompt and reliable service.      

BMWs Self-Balancing No Helmet Motorcycle

Posted on 7 November, 2016 at 9:23 Comments comments (81)
Concept motorbikes provide us with a glimpse of the future which makes BMW’s Motorrad Vision NEXT 100 such an intriguing prospect. According to Bavaria’s finest, this will be a super-clever self-balancing motorcycle that is filled with a host of futuristic features and gives us a sneaky preview of what motorcycling might be like in the next few decades.

Looking like something out of the Tron Movies, the BMW Motorrad is supposedly so smart and so safe to ride, there is no need to wear protective gear such as a helmet or heavy clothing.

The bike is equipped with its own self-balancing system and remains upright whether moving or standing still, without the need for a stand. With no chance of tilting over, this makes the bike perfect for novice riders but it also very responsive so it is also ideal for more experienced riders.

Data glasses replace traditional helmets

Gone are the traditional dials on the Motorrad, instead the rider wears a clever pair of glasses that act as a visor and provides a smart display. The bike communicates through the visor with the rider offering wind protection and vital information in equal measures. 
Features on the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 include:

·         No helmet, just data processing glasses
·         Total balance without a stand
·         Carbon fibre build
·         Futuristic display
·         Auto correct function
·         Finger gesture controls
·         A/C function to control temperature making heavy clothing redundant 

As well as these innovative features the VISION NEXT 100 will also be equipped with self-driving technology and can intervene when necessary. If the rider doesn’t react quickly enough and the bike senses danger, it can correct itself thus preventing accidents and incidents. 

As concept motorbikes go, the BMW Motorrad VISION NEXT 100 is unbelievably amazing. We’re not sure about the lack of helmet for obvious safety reasons, but the motorcycle certainly looks fabulous and the functions sound revolutionary. We’d love to transport it at some point in the future.

If you need reliable motorcycle transportation at any time, whether it’s for a classic, modern or futuristic bike, call us here atAce Services Bristol on07742940422.
