Re: Bike for my Daughter?

Gotta use their bikes for the MSF. So have to do the clutch. Not to worry though. My wife had never ridden a bike in her life, nor did she have your daughter's other experience, and she aced the course when she took it.

Get her some quality boots! If you plan to take her on "adventure" rides, you might as well get something more dirt oriented because the odds of the bike landing on her leg at some point will be pretty good. A good boot can mean the difference between being sore and having a broken ankle... I know this from experience, both ways

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Sidi and Alpinestars jump to the top of my list.

Of Course you'll see them at Moto Liberty.

Boots long sleeves and gloves minimum if I remember right for the course. Helment of course.

For women? Does she have a narrow foot or a wide foot? For a medium to narrow foot, I totally recommend the TCX Aura. Armor is in all the right places. It's comfortable, and they really are waterproof. The Aura is also comfortable to walk around in when you're off the bike as well. I have a narrow foot, and they felt tight at first. They've stretched just enough to be comfortable regardless of the socks I wear.
