First bike for a 5'3" 55kg female.
I got my motorcycle licence on a whim.
After surprisingly passing the learners course with zero experience I trawled the internet...
I wanted a bike that seat height was low enough that I wasn't tippy-toeing all over the place, it had to obviously not look like a total 'girls' bike but it also wouldn't break the bank.
I was originally interested in the tu250x, until my brother-in-law suggested the Boulevard s40.
It was love at first sight.
My first solo ride to work was exhilarating, the butterflies in the stomach acceleration, the smooth gear changes, the comfort from the seat.
The list goes on.
As a first time female rider, I am absolutely stoked with this bike....I always said I would NEVER ride or own a crotch rocket. Stop googling pros and cons guys, bit the bullet... GET ONE!!!
Great bike to start of!
I never rode a bike and took the motorcycle course. I purchased this bike to learn the basics and see if I really like riding. It was a blast in the streets but limited to smaller riders. I'm 5' 9" so fit like a glove. It was affordable, economical to maintain, but had limitations. The freeways went from 70 to 85 plus. It is too small for the freeways and not enough weight to feel comfortable. Watch out for that reserve valve switch. It was annoying fueling up a lot but then again a small bike. I got stranded and CHP had to escort me ...off the freeway. Thanks to a rider on a huge V-twin that ferried me to the other side. I regret that I didn't have the money to keep it. After 7 months, I moved up to the C90. No problem twisting the throttle and hitting 80 with no problem.
