Light, fast and cheap motorcycle for a tiny woman!

by Donna

Hi, I am 5'1" tall and slight but want to buy a motorbike to get myself around. I am looking to do long journeys and need something that wont take forever to get me there but would be comfortable and easy for me to pick up!!! :-)

Any ideas would be welcome!

Go Try Some On
by: Andrea

Go to a showroom and sit on some bikes. You won't really know until you've sat on it whether or not it's a good fit.

I'm 5'3, 29" inseam and about 120 pounds. The perfect bike for me is the 2004 Honda Shadow Aero. She's a 750. Small enough for fabulous fuel economy and big enough for serious road trips.

I agree with the post about the S40
by: Anonymous

Hi-- I'm a newbie also...I started on a Honda Rebel 250- but now ride the S40..LOVE IT! Had I known what it felt like to ride a 650 as opposed to a 250, I would have went straight to the S40. I actually feel a lot safer on the bigger bike because I have the power to get out of the way if I have to!

I'm 5'4 and it fits me GREAT! Perfect height and not too heavy ...

Have fun! Riding is a BLAST!! :)

Type of Bike

Check out this site it is a great way to see what bike will fit you: Cycle Ergo

Easy way to see what bikes fit your body. You provide the height, inseam what bike you want and a few other variables to the program and you get a picture of how you fit on that particular bike. Look for a bike that your feet are firmly planted on the ground. Sounds like you are a beginner and you would not want a big bike with a lot of power at this time.

As the other suggested, if you have not taken the Motorcycle Safety course that would be a must for you.

Best of luck,

How to Start
by: Cindy

It sounds like you don't have any experience, so I would advise that you start by taking a beginner's motorcycle rider course. You will learn the basics of riding on the small 250's. After you accomplish that, then start thinking about a bike.
