I'm not sure... it would depend on much she's "gettin into it". Does she have a bike or can she afford one? Also, I would have a back-up present as well!

i got her another present plus taking her to the keys, so it would be a add on for when we go back to OH, but she said she was intersted in taking the class cuz one of her gf's is getting her liscence and a bike, so would prolly get the bike within a year, depends on how school goes for us, danm college budgets and all, i was thinkin a gs 500 or something similar, but i thought the saftey course would be a good way to "test the waters" in a safe way instead of trying to two up when i dont have that much experiance myself. i thought it would be a good way to share the learning curve

I offered a MSF course to my wife and shes game... a little timid but game anyway. I agree with testing the waters in a near vaccum of a MSF course.

i think it is a cool idea. it will create a special bond btwn. you two over a shared interest in addition to introducing her to the complexities of riding a motorcycle. plus it'll build up her trust in your riding abilities for when you do feel ready to haul her. good luck with it.

That's great to hear man. I hope she likes riding on her own. You gonna show her some stunts? or just run her through the Gap?

Nah man, from the picture of the map on their site, he'd be able to run the Gap on the way home if he was riding home from Florida, or towing the bikes. Cause that'd be a nice, long trip on the bike. However, I'm not too sure that I'd want to do it on a sportbike cause it may get uncomfortable really quickly. It would be a nice ride though, scenery, time alone with the girl...that'd be nice.
