Have her buy aftermarket fairings and ride with those on for the first few months till the comfort has grown, sounds like a waste but think about it. If the plastics are priced anywhere near graffiti you know what I mean. Good Luck, if she loves to ride, you've got a keeper:hump: go wifey!:01_thumbu

Get her frame sliders ASAP! My girl dropped her bike in the parking lot at starbucks one day. It was windy and when she getting off the bike the wind caught her and over it went. Lucky her boot kept the bike from getting really messed up...Just a couple really small scratches on the fairing and the turn signal

And yes i know frame sliders are not designed to protect the fairings but they help to minimize the damage :)

trust me...she bought the bike yesterday and today i made her go buy frame sliders..she woulda gotten a normal street bike but shes a small girl and im convinced that the torque and Power to weight ratio would be too much for her to start on...so yah shes really excited and cant wait to ride

i think i have a mod problem...cuz now i find myself looking for mods to HER bike after i shop for mine lol

Contrary to popular opinion I think a 600 is not a good first bike. A better bike would be a 250 or 500 instead, but that point has been argued here from the dawn of time. There's a reason the safety course doesnt use 600's.
She has the bike though. its a good bike. I hope she enjoys it and I hope you both enjoy your time together.
