What motorcycle to choose?
(Western New York)
I've just turned 50, am 5'1" and 120 pounds. (I hate that weight, but hormone therapy is tough...) Anyway, I've ridden with my husband as a casual, fair weather rider for nearly 30 years. I'm wondering if I'd enjoy cycling better if I were driving myself. Here's my fear: I'm a teacher toting pencils and book bags - my upper body strength isn't great, and I'm scared of the weightiness of bikes. I have to be able to touch the ground firmly. Scooters tend to appeal to me more and I just noticed that there are some that can go long-distance at highway speed. What can you recommend? He's got a Honda Valkyrie and an ST1300.
