I felt terrible. Long story short she is done with the strom. Might get her back on the 250 but the strom was too tall, too heavy and too soon. So take your time and master a bike that fits you then make your significant other lower your bigger bike and get a good fit. Enjoy your lesson's ride safe. The happy days in our yard practicing starts stops and having fun. I wont post the sad day. The bike is for sale as we speak and my wife has most of her movement back in her arm. Be careful.
Please remember........... ATGATT!!!

Hope she continues to heal quickly and gets back on the 250.
