Thanks for the help.
My wife has never ridden a motorcycle so she has no idea about bikes yet.
I got a line on a used Suzuki 250 cruiser at good price from a friend so I might just get her that for Christmas and then we ride cruisers together and practice our skills until spring when it's warm.
Come Spring I get my Wee-Strom and she can move up to my 750 if she likes and is confident.
Currently I use First Gear Mesh pants and Jacket for the street and some Kevlar jeans with knee armor for rides to more casual settings.
For Adventure Touring including any off road I'm thinking
for pants and jackets. Trying for mesh as it's brutal hot and humid most of the year here.
