Once I told my girlfriend that there were a handful of ladies that participated in the Mid Atlantic Meet it was on. She started looking for bikes on craigslist. Well we found one today a 1996 Yamaha Virago 535C with only 3500 miles on it. We picked it up and I drove it back home about 40 miles. I must have looked like a Circus Bear on bicycle. It is in very good shape and we only paid $1350 for it. Now I get to teach her how to ride yippie!

I added a link to some videos

My wife wanted me to teach her how to ride, and told her no way. She had to take a course. Anybody who has been riding for any length of time develops bad habits, and I didn't wnt to pass mine on to her. Get intercoms for your helmets, then you can back seat drive for her.

do you know anyone with a dirt bike or scooter that she can drive around. they make learning the clutch and balance easier

My lady just did the same thing, just spent $500 bucks on a Corbon back seat and rest. Head out on a ride with some friends (one of which was a girl), we were the only ones riding 2 up. We stop a few places, she keeps seeing more women on bikes....and poof, waste of a new Corbin seat. New bike in the garage a week later...

Kinda cool, but makes me nervous also...

i know how you felt riding that little thing home. i bought my ex a zuki gz250 and had to drive it from somewhere in mid-kentucky back home to asheville, nc. i got so pissed off trying to make it up hills that i stopped at a lowes and bought a flatbed trailer to finish the trip.
