    Tell her you’ll let her ride it. That should make things ok with her.

    don’t wear laced shoes!
    the laces get tangled in the footpegs then you can’t put your foot down in time at the lights and you fall over and a truck squashes you!

    Good choice for a first bike. Always wear protection. Always ride like the cars are trying to kill you. Never hang in a blind spot, keep in sight of their mirrors, etc. If you have zero experience, find the local Motorcycle Safety Foundation and take their introductory course. Go to the bookstore and pick up a book on riding basics. Learn about countersteering. Learn proper braking technique. But most of all, enjoy.

    THE FRONT BREAK IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. Unless you are going down hill, still you only tap it or when going very slow.

    Don’t take braking advice from someone who can’t spell “brake.”

    i concur. the front brake is most DEFINITELY your friend. 70% of your braking ability comes from your front brake.

    Older bikes aren’t engineered very well, ESPECIALLY pre-2000.

    Anyways have fun on your $500 bike!

    So, from the posts here I take it that you don’t need a specific motorcycle license to ride one of these in USA?

    Here, in Denmark, you need to do the whole procedure again with driving lessons and theory lessons to be allowed to ride a motorcycle. And there even are two size classes, with the larger one (anything above 125 cc) requiring you to be over 21 to get the license.

    Class M

    Motorcycles and motor-driven cycles are included in this class. An applicant must be at least 17 years of age in order to get a Class M license, but is not required to possess a Class C license before applying for this license.

    You should get a job with the DMV and make fake driver licenses for friends.

    I think you have to be older than 12 to work at the DMV.

    I’d never ride a motorcycle just because so many people around here don’t seem to have a clue they’re there. In fact I sometimes wonder if all the stupid shit I see motorcycles doing (wheelies, etc) is just so the other drivers will notice them. But hey, your funeral, right? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Try the state safety courses first, the one I had to attend for the Navy in Jacksonville was pretty decent…but that was 17 years ago. If you have ridden a bicycle, the basics of steering and braking are the same, you just have a LOT more power at your disposal to get into trouble with. Keep in mind my favorite Dirty Harry quote:” A man’s got to know his limitations.” and you will be fine. See you at the Fire and Ice someday.
