All of you guys' wives seem scary.

This is why I could never be a lesbian - I can't freakin' stand the type of women you all are talking about.

If she's such a freakin' crazy why are you with her? Jeez.

Perhaps a lack of options?

I agree -parking lots are good..my hubby also let me do alot of riding through our neighborhood...lots of practice on turns...down shifting, etc. I also started out riding a dirt bike, which got me used to the manual clutch..balance issues, etc. I did take the MSF Course and would def recommend it...didn't too much care for the cruiser they put me on but it was good knowledge. 250 is a perfect starter bike also!

I'm not saying she's not a fully capable rider, I'm saying she didn't learn how ti handle a motorcycle simply by riding on the back seat. That's like saying you learned Kung Fu from watching The Matrix.
