need a little bike!

I've got a friend coming into town who wants to learn how to ride a motorcycle. If anyone has a little bike that I can borrow I would really appreciate it. I just need it to shift and fit someone who is 5 foot 2. A little 100 would do just fine as long as it's a four stroke and shifts so she can learn the basics.

I can pick up and drop off.

If necessary we can discuss a rental fee.

This is a surprise for her so if I can't find one it's no biggie.

TIA,

Mike

why not try one of those small displacement cruisers? It's what I rode at the MSF course and it was VERY comfortable (125cc)

You can borrow my Virago 250. It's the shortest seat height on the market and my Squoddybody 5' nuthin' sister can ride it flat foot.

(No deposit required - I don't think you will hurt it)

I got a little 110cc dirt bike, well it's an off brand, has stunt pegs, headlight, and blue LED's. 4 Gears, with clutch and shifter. Not sure if this is what you are looking for though.

brand doesn't matter. 4 stroke, shifts, and can be dropped.

I think that's about the gist of it.

As far as can the 450 be ridden, there is no key so, yes.

I have a stock TTR 125 you can use. Its a four stroke, shifts and can be dropped. I got the bike when I was 13 and it is what i learned to ride on. I use it now days mostly for teaching friends the basics of riding a motorcycle. So far i have taught 6 people on it, so it is no stranger to brand new riders. I also have a size small dirtbike helmet you can borrow as well as womens size 8ish dirtbike boots and size small dirtbike gloves (the gloves are a little well used though). Send me a pm if you are interested. I live in between Katy and Richmond.

You want to teach someone how to try to shift during a class? :-)

...I'd guess she' never touched a bike, he's gonna try to teach her the basics of jusst shifting w/o stalling etc then push to towards the MSF.
