    The new Adv Rider with the new bike.

    She did a great job for her first ride on the road and on gravel too.

    XT225....Perfect bike dual purpose for someone who isn't planning on doing huge milage or lost of freeway.

    Good Choice!

    Nice work! Great bike for her. I hope to someday get my wife something as well. It's something she'd never buy herself... that's when I step in. :D

    That's an interesting bike shop. Do they have a service department there? I kinda remember that they don't.

    Congrats on the new ride!

    Yes, it is a different kind of bike shop they actually have prices on the bikes:deal
    As far as service goes I can only go by the fact they prepped the bike and what thier website says.http://www.hondabikes.com/service.html

    One thing that sold us on them is the fact that the Wife and I stopped there
    about a month ago to to look at the Xt225 they had on special. Brian one of the sales guys would not sell us the bike, instead he made some phone calls and got Torkwife into an all womens MSF class.

    This was a class my wife wanted to take but thought was booked thru the summer, she passed the class and when it was time to buy a bike Brian got the sale. This was more then a sales gimmick he really cared enough for my
    wifes saftey to go the extra mile.
