Wondered if I could tap you for some advice perhaps?
My wife is taking her CBT next weekend (first time on a bike, apart from as a pillion).
I'm looking for a bike for her.
She is only 5'1" & weighs just less than 8 stone, so it would have to be something fairly light (& ideally easy to ride & reliable). It won't be doing mega-mileage, just something to get some experience on for a while.
Not wanting to spend a fortune, around £1000 tops. (If something was really decent, I could go a _little _higher).
Although she is fairly careful, as a first bike, it is liable to get dropped :-/
I have seen a few CG125S & also Suzuki Van Vans (which the CBTriding school has).
Are either of these a better option, or is there an alternative that I've missed?
Any advice would be hugely appreciated
p.s. I did see a HMC Classic/Classic S review in MCN. Is it worth spending the extra for a new bike???
