I bought one for my wife. It is her first bike at 45 years old and she is having a blast with it. I love it too but she never lets me ride it. A few things to keep in mind; When I first rode it, I thought it was a little gutless in the higher gears, and I thought the seat was uncomfortable. The more it gets broke in, the more power it sems to have, and the seat loosens up a bit so it's not quite so hard. Keep in mind, it is a dual sport, not a street bike. You will have to deal with some ass fatigue no matter what.
Here she is heading out to check on some cows.....
