Hello everyone! I'm a brand-new rider having finished my motorcycle safety class last week. I'm 4'10" with a 27 inch inseam. I'm so excited about getting my first bike, but I don't want the cruiser if I can help it. I love the sport bike. This brings me to my question.
I can't effectively test ride a bike until it is lowered. I've been on a Ninja, an R3, a Grom, and a CBR 250. Is it safe to choose a bike without ever personally feeling how it handles? I would basically be choosing based on looks and how I feel in the seat on the showroom floor.
I would really prefer to have a motorcycle instead of the Honda Grom. But I also want to feel confident and save on my first bike. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
