Hello from South Africa

Postby Boskind » Wed May 21, 2014 12:12 am

Hi there I am new to the forum. I am currently a pillion and looking to buy my own bike. Actually having bit of a dilemma. We have a Transalp and not sure if I should drive it or get a Yamaha Tenere. So hoping to chat to some ladies to get opinions. :)

Welcome to the forum! Hope some of the stories and info are helpful to you. Sorry I can't help with the bike info since I have limited knowledge about some of the other brands/models so maybe some of the other ladies can help in that area.

Hi Boskind, and welcome! :D Im another one who cant help with your bike choice but why dont you read some on- line reviews of each bike. Thats what I usually do when confronted by a choice, just google the bike name and a whole lot of info will come up. Good luck with your choice, its never easy!!

Hi Boskind and welcome along. Havent ridden either bike but rode the BMw GS 1200 which is simmilar. They are very high and have a pretty high centre of gravity. If you are a little on the short side then this could be a little daunting for the initial ride but I am sure there are many women out there who have learnt on this type of bike without a problem.

Hi Boskind and welcome!
Here's my 2 cents about bike choice. Which is most comfortable and are the controls easily reached (or they can be adjusted to fit you)? Different new riders have a different confidence level and power is something to consider. Getting something that is too much (or too little) for your skill level can take the fun out of it. Let us know what you have decided!
