You'd have to go custom. No one currently makes them.

If she needs a cage because she is dropping it that hard I am sure she would just give up riding and not want to get back on. I would just get the best sliders you could find and maybe some folding levers. Seems excessive when people put on cages for protection while just riding.

I dropped my bike ALL the time when I first started riding (if I had to guess, I would say 20+). Mostly it was due to the fact that my feet didn't always touch the ground; maybe I was in a hole, uneven road, ditch, curb, or on a slick spot, then - BAM - bike would fall. I wasn't strong enough to hold it up once it started going over.

My frame sliders always protected from most damage, although I did have custom curled levers. The biggest difference, though, is that my bike is naked and I didn't damage plastics with every drop. Needless to say, I learned REALLY quick how to pick it up and get back on and ride off before too many noticed.

That being said, I think a cage isn't a bad idea if she's short and just has to get used to putting her feet down on solid ground. As long as it doesn't take away from the looks of the bike, I say do it.

Guess coming from stunt riding it is dumb to me to see people with cages that never ride wheelies. Some cages get in the way and some will do more damage than good. Some designs will damage the frame and thus do more damage then good. Like Gary said. good sliders, bar ends, and folding levers. I tend to run my levers just loose enough that they would rotate on the bar but not move under normal riding. Engine cases too but with tthe 250's the engine is tucked and out of the way. I also drill a hole in the levers so that they are further weakened at a spot that i am left with enough lever to keep riding. Buy a folding shift lever.

Your gf dropping it would be just that. Like a loss of balance or footing and a fall from a stand still. It is your bike and you will do what you want any way.
