New Rider

Hello everyone :-) I am about to take my beginners course and soon after I'll be looking to buy a bike. Any suggestions for a beginner bike for a lady?

Welcome to the site. If you are looking to be adventurous, I would echo the DRZ400SM. They are a lot of fun on and offroad. If you are looking for a steetbike, I would say stay away from the 250's, people seem to sell them just as fast as they get them, they just outgrow them too fast. I have a SV650S for sale in the for sale forum that has served me well for the time I have had it. I would definitly look in the sites bikes for sale forum. A lot of good deals to be had there no matter what kind of bike you might be looking for.

Welcome, the 250, 300s are a good start. Also, the SV650s are pretty good as well.

Kawasaki Ninja 250 or 300 & Honda CBR 250 are great beginner bikes.

Also, trackdays save lives.
Get to a trackday (motorcycle school held on a race track) as soon as you can.
The MSF course will teach you low speed handling and the basics of riding.
Trackday schools will teach you how to handle the bike at higher speeds and build your confidence in cornering & braking.

I hope to meet you at a trackday soon.

My TUX is a good beginner bike for me. It's a simple bike with low seat height and upright body position. Great for around town to practice on the basics and my get confidence up. It's also inexpensive to own so it wasn't a huge commitment in case I decided riding wasn't for me.

However, I'm already outgrowing it. I'm looking to get a something with more power. I'm looking at the Scrambler, Street Triple, or FZ-07 soon.
