A 2012 TT-R 230b, and we bought all the gear before she even had a bike.... It's an important thing I want her to learn before she has to figure it out the hard way.

She's about 5'4.

Barely touching on the tips of both feet, but feels comfortable. The 125 would of been nice for her for the first week, just to get over the panic factor. Hopefully the 18 & 21 inch rims will also help in providing some confidence over rougher surfaces on the trail.

I had an 06 500f for a first bike. Great choice.

+1 to both! I lucked out - Mrs. Snow - wifey #2 makes me laugh hard. p201 #3014.

She actually likes cheap beer. Took a decade but she came around.
