Ok, I know I don't have the required equipment for posting here but ... I'm trying to convince my wife to ride her own bike. I've offered to get her the bike of her choice, but I'm steering her to either a KLR 250 , XT 225 or TW 200, as they are short, light weight bikes that aren't scary for a new rider. What I need is to have some input from all of you, something she can read from other women that ride. I would make her take the MSF course if she decided to go through with it. If she doesn't, I'm reduced to putting a hack on the KLR 650 I have. If I could I'd send ya'll flowers.
