Im helping a female friend of mine get back into riding and buy a bike. I asked her a few questions about what she does and doesnt want to post them here for all your opinions and ideas. Will give her a good head start for when she hit the Elizabeth Street blitz soon. HER INITIAL COMMENTS TO ME: "First things first, I would love a yellow bike ... not critical, but a nice to have" "I like the idea of a naked bike, I like the picture of the Virago cruiser, 2nd hand is OK" "I can spend up to $5000 on a 250cc and $1000 on gear - $6000 budget in total" "Primarily the bike will be for commuting to and from work, which is 30km each way, but would also like something a bit versatile that I can go for a ride on if I felt like it on a nice sunny day. Speed is not important, comfort is"
