Bikes too?

Recommended Posts

Guest Fox300exchic

So I was thinking of getting a bike. Im not getting rid of my quad, I just want to learn how to ride both. Anyone have a bike and if so what do you recommend? My husband has a 2002 yamaha 426. I rode that the other day but I have a hard time reaching the ground. I went to turn around on it and it stalled on me, I fell over and it landed on my leg. I had to wait for my husband to come and get it off me. I dont know if I just need to LEARN to ride something that size or if I need something smaller. Any ideas?

I rode a Yamaha 80 a few times, but it wasn't fun, too many things to remember! (it was my 1st time on anything I had to shift gears on that wasn't a car) so I'm sticking with 4 wheels now... :o

I am about the same height as you. my brother had a Honda XL350 that he let me drive and I found that it wasn't to big for me and my feet could touch the ground. hope this helps:)

Maybe its just that im so use to something with four wheels. His bike might have been set up a little different too. My husband is kind of a big man so his suspension might be a little stiffer. We just recently bought a vehicle so we havent really been looking for a bike for me but I will start again in a few months.
