Was it their first full-blown motorcycles?

I had my R1200GS while I had one of my scooters. Bouncing back and forth is no problem; but actually acclimating on the big bike, takes some doing.

And I'm a big guy, six-two. For a small woman (or even average size) to get on something the size and weight of a Harley without experience with the weight or the gearbox...it's not a good mix.

If the TU 250 doesn't make kitty purr, maybe the Virago 250 is more her taste.
