Re: Ladies - Women's first bike choice

I'm 5'2" with a fairly short inseam. I started on a Rebel a few years ago and moved up to the Shadow 600 last year. I can easily flatfoot both bikes. IMHO, I'm glad I started smaller than the Shadow. It wasn't just the seat height for me, it was the weight of the bike and the riding position as well...

Sorry to hear you're sick Follow. :(
I was just thinking about you and wondering if you were doing the LOE1000 this year (we can't, hubby has to work - bummer)
If you make it, wave as you go by, and eat lots of green chile while you're here, it'll kill you or cure you! :laughing:

Congratulations! :goodjob:
It is a big accomplishment making that first solo ride.
I ride with my hubby 99% of the time, so when I do solo rides I give myself an "attagirl".

Ride to Cuba, NM

I hope I figured out how to post photos, and write a fairly readable ride report. :) Since Mother Nature kept spitting rain over Memorial Day weekend, we postponed an out-of-town ride until this past weekend. Started out about taking our normal route out of town to US 550. The road from our neighbor...

Thanks both of you. Gotta admit the Shadow is an awesome ride. The Rebel was great but... Each time I get on the Shadow, I fall in love with her all over again! :motorcyclelove: Follow - I haven't mentioned LOE to the spouse yet, but depending on the work schedule, it might be a possibility this yea...

New Bike, New Season

Hello everyone. I've been lurking all winter, gaining insight and hopefully some knowledge waiting for the riding season to start. With the bikes put up for the winter didn't have anything to contribute. Anyhow, long story short - a trip for parts resulted in a bigger bike for me. Found a 2006 Honda...

Thought I saw that :wave:
I work just a mile or so from the balloon fiesta park and drive right by it on my way to work so I see all the balloons without having to go on the field. It is amazing to see.
We had some pretty ugly weather that weekend, did you hit any of it?

Don't despair - I too am short just over 5' with short legs and the Rebel fits me perfectly. It's been a joy learning to ride on it. You'll find the perfect bike for you too when the time comes. Enjoy your "lurking"! :tmwsign:

I've been trying on bikes for a future upgrade and for me, the difference was width. I'm vertically challenged 5'2" - short legs - and the 600 sidecovers dug into my legs. I didn't feel comfortable trying to flat foot it when I sat on it. The 750 was narrower and easier to pull up and hold up for me...
