Obviously, none of this applies if I end up being your Instructor.


So i am gonna take a wild guess and assume your "the old, weird guy with a mohawk"?
Ya i figured i would let them watch me ride for a whiuele, and see how i do for a couple then ask them to help me decide on a perfect bike.

Oh i can nag if u want me to lol.....
Oh i already have plenty of questions,

oh if only I had multi quote on my phone. if u were still planning on getting the 250 then u would have not made comments about going shopping or asking the instructors what u should get and would have said but I am going to be smart about it all and stick with the 250 I put the deposit down on.

No, but they might think that a Ninja 500, Ninja 650R, or a Suzuki GS650 would be a better choice. They might also recommend something along the lines of a FZ6 instead. They could even recommend that she start on a cruiser first.

Not ALL instructors think that EVERYONE on the planet should start on a 250. As a matter of fact, I only personally know of one that believes that way.

This is why we say "don't buy the bike till after your class". There is no perfect starter bike that works for everyone because not everyone is exactly the same.

this rofl smiley to be a smart instead of being glad she is taking the msf course to learn and not be a "fender bunny" as you put it. i mean seriously that is so welcoming of you . i'm sure she'll make the right choice and get a lesser powered bike to learn on or better yet let the instructors tell her.
I was welcoming at first, when she actually seemed like she was somewhat intelligent. but the last few comments about thinking about not getting a bike that would be a great starter bike cause someone told her its gay? give me a break. I would not call myself catty, more of have seen several things, I have been riding since I was 8 and think its funny/stupid the reasons people change there minds about the bike they want. especially girls, they are the most influenced.

and I agree, but if she found a 250 that she liked the way it felt and looked and it is a great beginner bike and liked it enough to put a deposit on but the only reason she doesn't want it now is because of what someone else said about the bike because the way it looks is the part I find extremely ignorant. I think there are several great starter bikes. :
