    First time rider, long time wanna-be.. Finally got my license after years of procrastination and found I enjoyed the freedom and thrill of the ride. Short (156cm), female and looking for a bike to learn on. Great to see such a forum exists! Looking forward to meeting you on the road :)

    Welcome to CR! my first post (of many many posts :) ) is asking the same thing, a good learner bike for a shorty, I got a lot of great suggestions so I'll try and find the post and link it.
    I ended up with a Honda CBF 250 and I found it wonderful to learn on.

    Welcome! Come along to coffee some time. Once you get to know some people I am sure they will be happy to let you sit on their bikes to see what fits.

    If you are still looking for a bike I recommend this site - can enter your height etc and "try on" pretty much every bike out there

    Hey thanks for the website :) I have recently (as of last Thursday) acquired a red/black/silver 2011 Honda cbr250 and have been slowly making my way around town

    Got a thumbs up from someone on a bike while riding down Ginninderra Dr so feeling quite warm and gooey inside :p
