Hi all, I’ve finished lurking and reading and have just bought my first ride. A Honda CB125e, which I know is lightweight, but so am I at 5’1” and it’s going to be a good starter bike for me until I get some experience under my belt. I’m hoping to make a Ninja 300 my next ride as I can actually reach the ground on one, but I didn’t think the riding position was a good one for me to start with. I’m lucky enough to have bought my ride from a very experienced rider (who bought it for his OH) and because he lives reasonably close by has offered his support. As a bonus he is also teaching me how to maintain my own bike! But it will be great when I step up to something freeway worthy hopefully later in the year. A big thank you to members for the wealth of information that stopped me from making some newbie mistakes and caused me to be a bit sensible about the this brave new world.
