The two basic rules to start with are:

1. you must have a reasonable expectation of profit in order to take writeoffs

2. you can only write off the business portion of your costs. If you also derive personal benefit from the expense, you must allocate a portion to non-deductible expenses

So, at a general level, you could likely take some writeoffs against motorcycle expenses, if you have a business which has an expectation of profit and you account for your personal benefit in claiming expenses.

Here's the relevant CRA circular -- see the "special situations" sections.

You will have a deemed disposition / change of use if you already own the asset (motorcycle) and you start using it for business purposes, whether you incorporate or not. If the asset has increased in value, you will have a deemed capital gain (but no deemed capital loss if it has declined in value).

Good luck!
