When you get your full test done you would likely like the honda rebel 250. It seems to be a good starting place for many lady riders, due to the height.Miss_C667 wrote:I'd be very interested to hear some suggestions.
Firstly, once I have done my CBT, I can only legally ride a 125 until I pass my full test.
Secondly, I'm 5'2" and quite short legged. All but one of the bikes I've tried so far has been too tall for me.

Thank you for suggestions so far, I'll look out for those bikes at the next show I'm at.southern belle wrote:I started on a Honda Rebel but I would also suggest trying the Honda Aero. I am also 5'2" and I can comfortable sit on this bike with both feet flat on the ground.
I had some of the same concerns when I was shopping for my first bike. I ended up getting a Honda 919 which is a naked streetbike. It's one of the lightest bikes out there at under 500lbs dry weight and it kicks A-S-S! there were a lot of people out there whose opinion was that it's too much bike to start out with, but I didn't want to get a teeny bike that ultimately I would get bored with and have to sell in a couple of months. Weight was a major concern of mine as well as height. I am less than 2"taller than you, and I didn't have to make any modifications at all. but I'm pretty sure you can chop it down if you need to. I've had it for over a year and couldn't be happier. This one's a keeper!!strtchick wrote:I have a question I am 5'5 and weigh about 115 i want to get a streetbike a nice eacy one to maneuver and fun bike I want to get somthing light i was thinking of Yamaha or Suxuki or Honda btu dotn know which would fit my needs best help
