The short girl finally found a bike to upgrade to!!!

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Dano, May 9, 2005.

  1. Hiya folks!
    Well after reading all your advice on bigger bikes for shorties a few months ago and FINALLY getting off my restrictions - I finally upgraded!
    Have traded in the wee Virago 250 and am picking up a 600cc on Thursday!!!!!!! Can't wait!

    I shopped around for ages, (nervously!) rode heaps of bikes as suggested and came across a 95 cbr600f which I could touch the ground on and that felt good! 40k on the clock, in good knick and in my price range!

    Lots to learn with the new style of ride/position etc, and the extra grunt but I can't wait to get out there and get confident on it...
    Then I'll have to come on a ride with you all - finally!

    Wahoo!!!!!! :D

    Thanks for all your advice guys!


  2. Excellent news!!

    Please be careful tho, it's got a tad more grunt than the Yammie Viagra :shock:

  3. :D Just a tad!...
    I think it will be short trips for a while just to get used to the ride possie and I'll definately be taking it easy!!!!
  4. Can you get to a track for a ride day or better still a "private practise session"? well worth it to help sort out the ride position etc.

    I'm jealous, been wanting to get a bigger bike for ages, but can't afford it :(

  5. Yeah I'm looking at something like that - just to get a bit more practise...

    Keep saving mate - you'll get there!! Didn't think I'd ever get the newie!
  6. Congrats Dani & ride safe!
