once you take the class you'll get a feel for about how much power you want

i took it and i was fine with the little 250cc shadow i learned on and went out and brought a ninja 250 that weekend (just because everyone told me to get that), but i got bored of the 250 in my 2nd month...so all together i should've gotten atleast a 500 and maybe aimed for a 600

but you know what you need more then any of us do, just dont get over confident or intimidated by the bike

First of all, she has her own gear already since she does do some paced rides with us on the back. Safety is always first.

i've heard it doesn't handle well when you lower it...just didn't know how bad is bad. I'm willing to start off on a smaller bike so that's not gonna be a problem.
