First bike for the lady?

Recommended Posts

So the GF wants to get into riding, I think the TTR is a perfect fit since it will be all woods riding. Just not sure on size, she's 5'6 and fit so I think she could handle the 230 but am more concerned about stand over height and overall bigger feeling compared to the 125. I would think the 125 would just be too small for some of the hills.

Ether a crf230 or ttr230 would be perfect Height wise but the bike would most likely be a bit heavy for her my ktm 520 is lighter then our crf230

She has not ridden, I know how much easier it is to toss a little bike around but was thinking more about her out growing a 100 quickly, although I didn't think of the CRF150, do those have E-start as well?

I think the last few crf150f years do I no the older ones don't, and all the crf150r don't, I test rode a f when I was looking for a bike for the misses Its a lot better size and power wise then the ttr125
