If you are gping to learn to "ride", start off on a yamaha tmax. Its automatic. Once you know how to ride, then learning to use a clutch will be much easier.

Ah it was a one day thing to show how serious two wheels can be. I'm just gonna get her a little 250 for learning purposes then we'll move up later on when her confidence is good and ready for something bigger.

Buy her something used that you wouldn't mind being dropped. It doesn't have to be a bike that's tall. After she learns to ride then she can get a bike that fits her

Oh yeah I gotta pretty good game plan, I'll find something used for now that isn't gonna break her heart when it does hit the ground, which I hope it doesn't happen BUT I'm pretty sure it will,then when she is good to go then we will fine something nice she will ride.I'm so proud of her wanting to get involved in the moto world. Proud hubby I am

A word of advice if and when you go on a group ride. Don't ride any faster than you would if you were riding all alone.

I go on lots of group rides and I love them, but if you let the rider in front or behind you influence your speed, bad things can, and too often, do happen

Unless she has natural Rossi-like talent, I'd have her take the Advanced Riders Course once she becomes proficient, then a track day, before I let her go on a group ride.
