What bike should SHE buy?

Hello! My naighbor would like to get into riding wit me :worthy: and she is asking me what kind of bike she should get.. she is about 5' 6" and about 110-125 lbs. I am thinking something like the XR100 or something.. oh btw her budget is about 500-600 dollars.. what do you guys think a good starter bike would be? REMEMBER: SHE HAS NEVER RODE BEFORE! I want to get her something where she could fit confortablly, but not have so much power it would scare her or get her hurt.. not something like a 50..

You can get a slightly abused TTR125 for around $700.

I agree...TTR125/ DRZ125/ KLX125

BTW..........just how old is this naighbor?????

she's 15

:worthy: I looking at the same bikes for my wife who has never riden before.

In my area just finding a decent running bike for 5 - $600 is a challenge. It can be done, but I would not limit myself to any particular brand. Try to stick with the big 4 (Honda, Kawasaki, suzuki and Yamaha), they are easy to find parts for, tend to be easy to fix and easy to sell when it's time to upgrade.

As far as actually finding a bike, check the local classifieds and Craig's List. and in that price range be prepared to move fast. Good deals in that price range go quick!
