Because she's is new to off road and you need to learn, that's why flatfooting is important. Some of the bikes that posters here have mentioned here will just get her hurt, or she will have a fear of riding off road. Like one person said, the Yamaha XT225 would be a better choice for a new rider over the CRF250L or the Yamaha WR250R and those 650's are totally out of the question. For us guys that have been riding for a time that's one thing, but don't put new riders on bikes they can't handle, until they learn and get some seat time.
