Send her through the Basic RiderCourse and have her talk to her Instructors towards the end of class about bikes.

At least they'll have the opportunity to watch her ride for a couple of days before making recommendations.

And yes, we do offer MotoHouston members a $150 price. Get in soon, classes are filling up quick this time of year. Weather is perfect.

WERD!!!

My girl rode with me but wanted her own the whole time. She took the MSF and i practiced with her in some big empty parking lots on my bike. Then i bought the 07 10r and passed her my 636 that she wanted. Shes gettin really good now. She could still get a little better but that will come with time. She needs to get a little more comfortable making quick decisions and get a little more confident in her corners. We just took it slow and slowly moved her from back roads to to more busy streets and then to the freeway. Its much more fun though now that she rides her own bike and i wanted her to be completely comfortable with each one before i moved her to the next.

i just got mine an 05 hyosung 650r. It is cheap and it accelerates slow enough for a beginner. But it is fast enough for her to keep for a while when she gets better. She is signed up for MSF next week. Hopefully she loves it. It is great to get your girl one cuz when you wanna go on a long ride you don't have to listen to her complain about you being gone cuz she can come along.

i personally would not get a bike in my name for her. i would ask her to get her own bike in her own name. you never know when you date a crazy girl.

i knew someone who bought a bike for the girl he was dating and right before she broke up with him, she took the bike out and wrecked the out of it and broke up with his . so he was left with a ****ed up bike that he had to fix.

Haven't read the previous posts and I'm sure they will be similar....So here's what I think. Have her take the MSF course. That way she will learn everything she needs to learn and at the same time she will decide whether she still wants to go through with getting a bike. It's not cut out for some people. In terms of a bike...I wouldn't purchase brand new b/c there's a chance that it may fall over once or twice in a driveway or what have you. And plus she will want to upgrade eventually so why take the chance of taking a loss on the sale of the bike? Right? Bike: Ninja 250.
