Well, good luck! I hope that she decides to go. The MSF class here was really good.

Boy, ain't that the truth. She actually has no desire to learn. First, she doesn't *want* to learn, and second she thinks that she is incapable of riding a bike. She's really small, 5'2'' and weighs about 110-115. She's afraid that she cannot handle the weight of the bike, which is pretty much true in stand-still situations. I'm a big guy myself, 6'0'' 210 lbs, and I've nearly dropped my bike about three times just sitting on it stand still.
Well...I have been lucky. I have a EX250 which is very small and easy to handle and I am 5'8" so even the larger bikes aren't intimidating to me anymore. I was worried when I started out also which is why I bought the smaller bike (against the advice of my MSF instructors who told me to go with a 500). She might like the bike I have. And if she doesn't get interested, you never have to worry about who gets the next new bike.

I think that if she learned how to ride, then she would probably want to go to the track with you! It's alot more fun to ride with some one than ride on the back.

Tell ya what, since we are in inverse situations, why don't YOU talk to my wife about letting me on the track, and I'll talk to your husband about letting you on the track.

I think the new R1 is beautiful. BTW, the trend towards LESS fairing is to keep the weight under control for you Weight-Watchers Freaks!
I totally agree !

My next mission is to talk him into a track day or one of the schools. The bikes were his idea and I think I ride mine now even more than he rides his. I'm glad he suggested it.

Don't feel bad, mine won't either
