I am looking for a motorcycle but I am afraid I might be too tall. I am a 6' tall girl and want a sports bike. I can't test drive one because I do not know how to ride yet. My boyfriend is looking for one too and cannt ride yet either but he is 6'7". Can someone recommend a good starter bike that is not too expensive that we might fit on? Please help..I don't even know where to start. Any recommendations for new riders would be good too. I don't want to hear it is not safe because we plan to be responsible and just want to cruise around on weekends. Not for racing so speed is nothing we are too worried about. We are looking at 600cc or bigger.
You ride their bikes, and they have sport bikes and cruisers to try, even enduros (dirt type bikes that are street legal). Plus a couple/three different brands. I took it during the week and it was a great experience. It was only a 30 minute drive to their classroom and driving course. I highly suggest you look into this. Everyone including the girls left very happy and knowing much more about what they wanted to do than when they got there.
Even I learned a couple new things. I found the class I was in was broken up into 1/3 ladies 2/3 men. And ages ran from 16 to 60. Most were in their 20's however.
I can not stress enough how I think this would be a good choice for what you are asking.
Make sure you read the requirements so you don't have to go home and change into appropriate dress.
My son learned on a Savage 650 and we sold it to fallons son here on the forum when mine got too big. He is now 6 10 and I bought him the triumph america as it is a large framed bike that fits him well.
