What to look for in a motorcycle?
Has two wheels handlebars Saddle and a Motor, not much has changed in the last 100 plus years here.
I started on a Cushman Eagle my uncle owned, but that dang Schwinn Wizzer caught my eye, and its been a different bike every time since.
Motorcycles are like Recliners'
You have to sit on each and try them out before you buy.
Good Luck in your search.
The Yam SR 125 has a VERY low seat & low C of G too, so is perfect for a girl, if you can ignore the quasi-cruiser styling, its actually not a bad little bike! I has a CB125 Superdream new in the 80's, it was much heavier, but looked & felt like a "real" bike. The finish on the Honda CG125 is awfull, they are made in Brazil, the chrome & paint is simply rubbish & if you have to park it outside, it will turn to fe02 before your eyes!
I've had lots of advice from different people all saying somthing different. Jerry I'm more into sports bikes so i wouldn't really consider a cruiser never mind a Harley. I know what bike i'm aiming for in the long run (Superblack bird) but need to work up the ladder for my own safety.
Rescue....That's the worst and I nean worst bike to offer. Pixi you came to the wrong place to ask for a first bike to learn on. Your first choice is the one. I'm assuming your from the UK so don't ever try and pursue a hardley. Stick with a japenese motorcycle if you want to have enjoyment in riding.
the cbr 125 is quick but the wheels are to small, good around the corners all together its a good bike or the Apr ilia rs 125 its pretty fast for its size but its 2stroke engine. the cagiver plant 125 now that's a brill ant bike my mate has one and excellent runner all around.
