I think it would be perfect.

Yep, good starter bike. We got a DR200 for my daughter who is about that tall and my wife 5' 6", is learning to ride it also. XT250 and Super Sherpa are similar sizes too.

Hope she learns to ride.

I agree with other posters here, I like/love my dogs more than 99% of the people out there.

The XT225 is a bike she won't grow out of soon. The XT250 is much better. My wife's been riding for over 40 years and still has a XT250 in her fleet. She had a DR200 before that and a XT225 before that. The XT225 is fine the DR200 is the most powerless thing she had ever riden.

Perusing through some photos found this one of the wife, and mother of our 3 sons. The youngest was 18 at the time of the pic.

She has cost me a lot of $$$, this was on our 2nd trip to the Alps, she has dragged me back (kicking and screaming ) there 6 more times since.

No passenger pegs on the XChallenge.

Well you can add them, but no she isn't coming.

Great photo of all three of you!!

Sad to hear about your pup and I emphathize with you. We lost our 14.5 year old husky (my avatar photo) to an aggressive cancer last Sept. Went from all fine to see you later in a few quick months.

Although none of our Huskies would stay in a hack, they are big time runners....We'd be chasing them in the hack and they'd be laughing at us.

Hey your right! Although if you ask me her jump is stronger than this guys... I think it's cause shes not stuck in a cage like the cowboy.

When I googled "toyota jump" for a picture there were way more people than I thought doing the "toyota jump"

We went to Red Rocks where my buddy set up two lights. We took a bunch of photos.

I liked the shots and they are the only shots I have of my wife of 22 years riding with me, so I decided to post them. Now my question....Why does anyone care about the other crap, it is a good picture of my wife and dog. I was out riding today while you internet critics were sitting around looking at pictures of me riding.

Now I believe that is the most I have ever said in a post.....and I am done.


P.S.

Thanks Jon and Jguerin for the nice comments.
Great response Juan and a touching story. We lost our 15 year old German Shepard in 2006 so I know exactly how you feel. I too was confused about all the concern of HOW the photo was created I just thought it was a cool photo and IMHO no different than some of the color enhanced or artistically modified shots others have posted. So now every knows "the rest of the story" (not that it really should matter)

So sorry to hear about your dog you have my sympathy as that is a tough loss!
