I have been out and bought a helmet and whilst out sat on a ninja 300 and a virago (only because I had my mrs with me and she too wants to ride) not keen on a cruiser. However the yzf-r3 is popping up on my radar. The bike will be shared by me and the mrs (don't go there) so has to suit her at 5"2, until we can buy her a bike or I save for a ninja 650. Out of the Ninja and the yzf-r3 which would be the better bike. I totally understand at 100kg I won't get as much bang that a lighter rider would but have to compromise to begin with so my mrs can also learn to ride.
