Hi all!
If you’re going to be doing mostly in town rides, Connie’s large size and relatively high weight become bigger concerns, especially for a first bike. I think a DL650, SV650, or a Ninja 650 would be better in that case

I am a beginner and we just spent the entire weekend shopping for bikes, I have my heart set on a street bike so no cruisers etc. I have narrowed my search down to two bikes. I am only 5'1" and 120lbs so I am a small woman. I am looking towards a Ninja 650 or a Ninja 300. I am interested in the 300 for learning purposes and the fact that I know it CAN be lowered if we decide... but the 650 is more appealing for the long run because i'm fairly sure if I get the 650 I will stick with that for a long time. Opinions? Ideas? Thoughts?

I have personally thought of building a bike. If your bike is comfy then getting a framesize isn't a problem. Reach, stack and head angle, will give you decide application/use. Then just choose frame material
