How Does a Motorcycle Work?


  • Of course, the motorcycle seat is what you sit on. You want it to be comfortable and fit you.
  • You should ensure that the seat height is not too high for you to comfortably reach your feet to the ground and support the bike at rest. This will be a consideration when you purchase your first bike. It is also possible to remove some of the padding material in a seat to reduce the seat height.
  • You also need to consider how you will be using the bike. Some seats are too hard for long trips.
  • You should find out what is under your seat. Often fuses, tools, owner's manual, battery terminals, etc. are there. Find out how to remove it in case you have to.
