I know conventional wisdom says first bike shouldn't be bigger than a 250, but wife rode dirt bikes as a kid (a long time ago) and I don't want to buy a 250 only to have to sell it in 6 months. If it was for a teenager, I wouldn't go more than 250, fortunately wife has some common sense.

Your personal opinions are most welcome.
Daang, my other option bike is your 700 Honda...wahddyathink...too tall?
Especially would like to hear from you 650 GS gurus
I recommend starting off with at least 1300cc's. Don't want her getting bored...........
