V-wife started riding at age 48. Got her permit. Learned basic control operation. Went out to ride some trails, broke her thumb (loss of throttle control over an obstruction, struck tree), out for the rest of the season. That was on a DR-200SE.
Got an even smaller bike, dualsported TTR-125L. Started riding again. Also took MSF course (on their Honda Rebel). Now licensed. Does local dirt roads and paved connectors (comfortable running bike 45mph max - similar to the way my EC200 2-stroke woods racer is geared!). For any further, she rides passenger on our DL-1000.
