She's happy, you have someone to ride with, and she owes you big time for passing on the 08. Good work! :thumbsup:

Please post to this thread what your dealer is going to use for lowering links. I have heard that the same links for the 04-05 10R will work, but no one has confirmed it. My wife is 5'7" so we don't think that she will need to lower hers, but it would be nice to know exactly what to do if we need to. My dealer doesn't seem to know and my wife's blue 250 won't be here until the end of April, so we have plenty of time. If there is a huge snow storm covering all of New England at the end of April, you will know that we caused it by taking delivery of her bike on that day.

Man, I finally saw one an 08 250r in person the other day and that thing looks good. If I was younger and they had that bike out, it would have been my 1st bike. The one I saw was red, and that's a good color for the bike. It really surprised me how good they looked.

Send your wife to an MSF course...it's well worth it!!! About 3 days after I took the course I was able to get on my bike and ride it around our development with confidence. By my third ride I was ready for a major roadway and I did great. This is my first bike too and I had no clue what to do when I first got on it! My hubby tried to teach me a little before I took the course and his efforts were nearly worthless (lol) so def consider signing her up!

I was nervous too but the instructors I had were great and really broke down the basics. Tell her she'll be fine!!! I had 2 other women in my course with me and all 3 of us passed with no problems! :thumbsup:
