Have her take the MSF Course BEFORE you buy a bike. At the end of the class, she can talk to her Instructors about good bikes for her. They'll have a better idea after watching her ride for a couple of days.

My .02 cents

The rest of the courses for December are only $150

Yep, we provide motorcycles, helmets and insurance. All she has to bring is some specific clothing.

My worthless opinion about people who have never riden anything is to get them on a small dirt bike first. Learning basic operation of a motorcycle feels alot better when you tump over in the grass.

Then get her signed up for the MSF. If she is cute you should offer to go with her to the MSF. Or you can tell her to PM me.
