Our family took up this awesome sport about 1 1/2 yrs. ago, and when we first started riding, my wife wanted a quad, while me and my two sons rode our dirt bikes. She said that the quad felt more stable, and the whole balance thing felt a little intimidating. A few weeks ago, she was climbing a small hill, and looped-out on the quad, and the quad came tumbling right back at her, narrowly missing her. After that incident, we were all a little sobered after watching the quad come down the hill, and my wife has since decided that she, too, might like to join us on the "two-wheeled" side. After all, we have crashed NUMEROUS times, with hardly ever anything more that bruised pride. My question is this, those of you who have wives, girlfriends, sisters, whatever, that ride dirt bikes, can you give me some feedback as to which bikes are tried and true, beginner friendly bikes. If any of you women would chime in, with some encouraging words, we would both appreciate it. She told me the other day, that she is a little intimidated, but she is a real trooper, and as a lot of you know, if Momma ain't havin' fun, ain't NOBODY havin' fun!! We are looking at a new DRZ 250. What other suggestions do you guys and gals have?? Thanks for the help, Rekless.
