GF needs POS Bike that Runs to Learn On!!!

Whats up guys, well the Old Lady wants to try and start riding but doesnt know if she will like it or not. So she wants to ride around the neighborhood to see if she likes it. Well, Im not buyin a decent MC just for her too ride 1 mile and not want it. So I need a POS running bike for her to ride. Im looking at like the couple hundred dollar range or if you just want to loan would be great
Prefer a 250 or equal type MC
Let me know thanks

GL and be safe.

Have her take a MSF class. Under 200 bucks and she gets a couple days riding. Plus, if she does like it, she'll be one step closer to knowing how to ride.

Yeah, i was thinkin of that, but would like her to practise first before goin there cause she is very shy, hard on herself and stuff when she doesn't know how to do something in front of people

My neighbor has a total POS, but running, ninja 250 (first gen).

I think he was asking $700 for it a LONG time ago.

You could get it prob for $500, or maybe lower?

Would be a great bike to learn on and drop the out of and not give a lol.

Im the same way..... but msf was my only choice

She will be with plenty ppl out there in the same boat tho... and most likely, someone will even be worse than her...

If you don't take her to an msf class, you're an idiot!!! You could probably use the class too, regardless of how many miles are under your belt. The class will pay for itself in insurance savings.

Is this true? Does State Farms recognize the course and discount accordingly? Perhaps, I need to call my agent and verify that they have my MSF course on file.

Ok by POS I meant like no fairings and ripped up seat, I DIDNT mean front wheel wobbling and falling off with broke off frame, come on guys i'm not like that. Yes she WILL take MSF just like I did when I first started learning but she does want a chance to try it out first before we buy a decent bike.....please if YOU DO NOT HAVE A BIKE WILLIN to SALE then DO NOT reply thanks!
