I have a Honda Rebel CMX 500—my first bike and I love it!

This article is everything. I haven't learned to ride a motorcycle yet but I'm taking the class for my birthday this year. I've been using this article to research the purchase of a motorcycle for after the class to continue learning and give myself the opportunity to buy the best piece of equipment. Plan is to try a bunch of these models.

But anyway, from a user perspective, it's easy to follow and makes great suggestions across a few brands. It's easy to see similarities in the bikes chosen which gives a user additional information like on engine size or power.

Thank you for this!

I got my license about eight years ago without ever having been on a motorcycle in my life. I took an accelerated weekend course that ended with a road test. I still don't know how I passed but I found a 2001 Honda Rebel 250 for $800 that everyone told me would be a great learner bike. But I lived in a very crowded area (Fort Lee, New Jersey) at the time and there was no real good place to practice.

I dumped the bike in a park one day when I lost control and was heading toward the Palisades Parkway. I sold the bike and haven't ridden a motorcycle since. I love being on the back of my boyfriend's Harley-Davidson and now that I live in the Hudson Valley I want to learn again. I have zero confidence on a bike and need to build it back up. I am actually scared. But I know I can get past this and really want to be as confident on a bike, as I see all these other women riders.

A friend has lowered 2008 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Superlow (I've sat on it and the size is perfect for me) that has a beautiful custom paint job. I love the bike. She is selling it but I am scared it's not the bike for me to learn on.

My neighbor is selling a 2017 Honda Rebel 300 for about $1200 less. My fear is I will get comfy on the Rebel and then when I want to upgrade I won't get my money back for the Rebel. I know even if the Harley is sold I can get another one or something else.

Last summer I bought a Ninja 250 to learn on because it's small and light and I figured it would be easy to learn on. But I can only touch the ground with my toes and don't feel comfortable on it—I don't like not being able to control it. Also, I don't like the riding position of a sport bike. It was $600 so I'm not out a lot of money if I don't ever ride it. I'm torn. Should I get the Rebel and suck it up? I won't be going on highways with it but I can certainly ride our country roads on it. I am 5 feet 1 inch and weigh about 135 pounds. I'm pretty strong but my confidence on a bike is garbage. What do all the women riders out there think? I'd love to hear from you.

I will be taking the Riding Academy course through our local Harley-Davidson dealership this weekend. I am very excited and a tad scared. I grew up driving everything not two-wheeled (other than a scooter). I also rode on the back with my dad and my husband. I am knowledgeable of working a clutch. I will be shopping for my new bike soon and I am looking for recommendations. I am 46, 5 feet 4 inches, 190 pounds, and I will be using the bike around town and hopefully on Saturday rides with my dad and the local Harley chapter.
