I read this thread with a certain amount of longing: my GF won't go near a motorcycle, so that's a whole set of experiences we'll never share. Sometimes that's nice, most times it's not.

Any bike can be lowered. It comes down to what kind of riding she wants to do, her skills and her comfort level. A lot of women I know ride the WR250R and love them. They range in height from 5' to 6'. It's the next bike I'm adding to my collection. I never thought about having a "girl bike" or a "boy bike". I just want bikes that do what I want them to do and where I'll have fun.

Sounds like a lowered WR250R would work for her.

Well, look at the bright side... she's not likely to run off with one of the inmates on Advrider!

Lots of women think riding around nice and slow in a sidecar is very conducive to creating your own version of a Cialis ad.

So why not add them to the list of the two great bikes in your sig line?
