My wife rides a CRF150F, she is a WHOPPING 98#. The 150 weighs in at 225 (dry) and I am trying to talk her into a KTM 150 EXC, but I'm not positive that it's the right bike for her....Of course if she doesn't like it, I WILL beat the living hell out of that bike...but that's another post. Her riding ability is OK, not great, not bad, but OK. I (yes I know) think that her specific motorcycle experience is holding her back from being a much better rider than she is. Her "bike" experience has been, a 77 XR75 (that bike kicks ass, but is way to small), an XR100, (gutless! I wonder...if it will get up any hill, more or less the one I'm looking at), her current CRF150F (heavy azz, suspension-less "girls" bike) and a couple spouts on my sons CR85......which she stopped riding (amazingly) with the biggest grin on her face to point out that "it is scary fast in 5th gear".....she loved the feel of the CR, but well, it is a CR85, which is "scary fast" and IMO "to quick" (not to fast) for a trail rider. I was reading about the smooth power delivery of the 150 EXC and thought "wow! suspension, light, good power delivery, what wouldn't she like about this bike?". So we are going to look at one tomorrow. Does anyone have comments on my train of thought..yes I know KTM is ruining off road motorcycles...especially by having a bike for every rider....blah blah blah, but a YZ 125 isn't a bike for her...or any 125 (I think). Most manufacturers only make bikes for her size in OVERLY HEAVY 4 STROKE drag, no light little 4t or 2t bike...EXCEPT KTM, so?
