I'm a lady biker who has recently passed her test and I'm now looking to buy a bigger bike.. In particular, I have my heart set on a Hornet. From what I can tell it's a good all-rounder, very dependable and restricts moderately well.
My concern is that I'm 5ft5 and not very strong. I've sat on one and can get both feet on the ground but I'm not sure how difficult I will find handling it - could any lady (or smaller male!) Hornet owners chime in with their experience?
And does anyone have any general advice for minimising embarassing drops etc when making the leap from 125 to big bike?
