Re: Advice form the girls?
I started on a GSXR 600K7 as my first bike. You just have to respect the machine and know that it's got the power. I did a 2-inch drop on it which really helped (I'm 5'5", if that helps), plus had frame sliders on it from day 1. It is best, as you are doing, that she take the course and decides if she even likes riding. If she does, you may want to start her on an older 250 that you pick up for a good deal, then get her a newer one for next year's anniversary that she picks out. That way she gets to choose what she wants and not just have it choosen for her by online forum-peoples who don't know her. Only my opinion though. (Also, yes, I'm a girl.)
