A bike for the wife?
Posted February 07, 2001 - 05:26 PM
She is 5' 3" and 103 LBS if that helps any.Any advice would be great I am kind of stumped as to what would be the best bike.
One a better note, I am picking my 01 WR 426 up on Saturday!! I can't wait to kick it over for the first time. It's too cold to ride here right now but should warm up soon. ( I hope )

TTR125L!!!! YES!!!! The answer to my prayers. Great bike, easy to start, easy to handle, good power. Heck if your wife grows out of the power by the 150cc kit. BBR sells just as many after market goodies for the 125 as they do for the YZ/WR!
JJ - 99 WR; WR timed, stock jetting, Scotts stabalizer, Scotts triple clamps, Pro-Tapers, Terry Cable Hot start, MSR Raptor clutch lever, Moose skid plate, Works frame guards, Acerbis Pro Rally guards, Renthal MD-soft grips, Russel speed bleeders, Factory Effect graphics, YZ rear fender

Highly reccomend anything over 600cc..."You'll be right dear...it just needs plenty of throttle to get you moving along nicely"
LoL! ahhh well I reckon if they did'nt have a &%$#@! Youd throw rocks at them.
I know thats not constructive feedback, but its not far off the truth!

I bought my wife a TTR-225.It is very heavy but it has electric start and is shorter than the XR 250 that she was riding. She really likes it. She hasn't ridden it for 2 weeks and it was hard to start yesterday? Not sure why.

Glad I could help.
I'm thinking about getting the wife the 125L as well.
