Yeah, your not kidding!
I may have to get one of the non-sumo versions myself. It's super light and so easy to toss around compared to Big Red.

Whoo Hooo! More estrogen on the trail! Tell your wife welcome and she can ride with Cathy and I. We won't go to fast for her.

That is ultimately my evil plan.
Just need to get her some more confidence and maybe a set of dirt tires.

Tell her she can't be anymore frightened than I am. I have very little confidence and the only thing that keeps me upright is a fear of falling.

As long as she can ride with a little confidence to Malibu and back on PCH, she'll be fine with us. I had only scooter experience and a tiny bit of motorcycle experience when I rode with you guys the first time.

And if she rides with us she can get a cool shot of herself on the bike and turn it into a nifty poster:

Shouldn't be too bad on the big bike (GSA), it will be all slab until a stop at Trailtricks shop for a new TKC on the rear, then the fun begins. From Frazier Park, 157 miles mostly dirt to Arroyo Grande

hey Sarge, why did the wiffy decide on the sumo version instead of the dirt one?
Just curious.. because my S.O. had her eye on the KLX140L but that bike was just too small for her.

Sweet!
Thanks for the encouragment... I gotta get her into this forum. A lot of great people here with great advice.
We did a few miles around the neighborhood last night and had some fun and I'm sure she will be running circles around me with that little sporster as she gains some time and mileage.

Umm... not sure!
The sumo sat an inch or two lower than the dirt one and I think she liked the bigger brakes and sport tires.
