First bike for a big girl
Hopefully, less big as time goes on, though. But, because I am big now (250) and it will take a while to be less big (or if heaven forbid, I backslide), I'm pretty sure I need more than a 250 if I want to do anything more than toodle around the streets.
I'm looking at things like the V-Star 650...something with that look..I will NOT take any of the bikes that look like a Transformer caught in mid transform AND in heat. I also will not own (for personal, possibly irrational, reasons) a Harley. Other than that I'm wide open.
Aside from the weight issue, while I'm 5'8", I only have a 28" inseam and I would prefer to flatfoot (or close to it).
