Just one question about the zoom. As you know I'm not a pro so I just want photo's to hang in my house. When I use a lens with less zoom (more multifunctional) I would have pictures with a wider angle, so the motorbike will be "smaller". However when the resolution is good it will be no problem to crop the pictures at home, have them printed on A4 and still have a great result? Or am I missing something here?

What if only having the 70-300 means you miss shots simply because the subject won’t fit in the frame .

The secret is to get as many pixels covering your subject ( a bike in this case) to get you the best possible image detail wise , remember when you crop you also magnify making noise etc much more noticeable. 
here’s a basic reference of focal lengths of a scene to give you an idea.
