Firstly, the person who said you are wasting your money if you buy a Snap On torque wrench is wrong. However, for general use around the bike, I would not be afraid to use the Harbor Freight click type wrenches for general use, especially at the price point you are at. I bought my Snap On torque wrenches on Ebay at 1/2 price, they were and still are like brand new. I sent them out to get calibrated and the guy said they were perfect. I was working in aviation at the time, so good torque wrenches were essential. I would not assemble and engine with a HF torque wrench.
As for sizes, I would get a 1/2" ft/lb. 3/8" ft/lb and a 1/4" in/lb set. That way you can cover the larger items such as swing arm fasteners and the smaller stuff too (front axle pinch bolts for example). If you use the HF wrench (or any torque wrench) in the middle portion of its range they will be more accurate.
