As a fellow husband I would definately say the with it and send her to the MSF class...We as Husbands have no patients because our wives listen to everybody except us, ( just kidding ) although the old folks say, " there's a truth to every joke." Good luck bro, use snow mittens when you choke her, doesn't leave hand prints.....LOL....Not for real I was kidding for real on that one.....

buy her a 125 dual purpose and let her putt around a parking lot on it... and then sell it and get her a 250 cruiser type bike and let her learn the streets.. then move up.. shouldnt take much patience.. just alittle guidance.. once she learns basice controls it is up to her how fast she wants to learn the rest.

Why not put her in MSF? Seriously? You haven't answered to those that suggested that unless I missed it.

I'm not reading the whole thread but. . .Charles, you can borrow the 70 sometime to get her comfortable with the brakes/gears/acceleration thing. once she masters the basics throw her on the Roketa and teach her the clutch.

i teach weekends if 2/3 and 2/18, sending her to me will save you alot of arguing and may save her life.

i can tell you teaching your spouse will bring alot of grief.

Charles, first thing I usely have them try is something similar to the MSF class. Have her walk the bike around just using the clutch... no hand on the gas so she don't wheelie it. This will help her get a feel for using the clutch. Don't let her use the brake either at first. Just feel the clutch. let it out a little to get it moving then pull it back in to feel the engine brake a little for you. Then have her do the same but use the front brake to help it stop. This whole time you are staying away from the throttle. Once she masters that have her easy into the throttle and pick her feet up staying in first and then coast for a ways and use the brake to stop. Then get into the teaching of switching gears and using both brakes, etc....
Like what moody said, or you can do like what I did to show my old girlfriend; sit "B", that way you are still in control (or at least very close) and then do what Moody said. It worked great for me. Plus... hopefully the reward will be worth the while, well at least it was for me:icon_bigg

As much as the wives will hate it "Someone better get this event on tape!"
It will be like watching a baby learn to walk so to speak.

If she's scared of a 125, how will she do on an MSF reg bike that's like a 250? I know plenty of graduates that never felt even close to comfortable on the bikes the MSF class provided.

Get her on something tiny. Let her take it at her own pace. Let her decide for herself if she even cares about riding the 125. Don't commit her to a full weekend of (sorry all you MSF guys) boring instruction. That's the price she should pay to get on the street, not to get on two dinky wheels.

The 50 won't wheelie, no matter what. The Zuma...all day long. The 110cc is touchy, but first gear is almost unflippale it's geared so low.

Hey Paniro,

If you want, I have a big bbq pit at my house, and I live on a secluded road about 5 minutes from your place.

With a couple days notice I can get my hands on some noob bikes and I've already got a briskette in the freezer.


You have my number =)

Sucks to be you Charles.

But in all fairness, get the little woman a 250 and let her take it up and down the block.
