Honda VLX 600

submitted by DrDonna

As a beginner rider I knew I wanted a bike that wasn't too small or too big. I picked a new Honda 98 VLX600. It was a perfect fit for me. I am 5'4" tall and weighed 104 lbs. The bike was not heavy and didn't intimidate me. A fantastic bike for a beginner to give you the confidence you need. It also has a very low seat height for the shorter riders, 25 inches, and my feet were flat on the ground. The only thing that bothered me was once I was familiar with highway riding, I was always trying to shift to a 5th gear. It comes with 4. However, it took me a while to feel comfortable with riding on a highway, so my advice for any new rider would be to check out the Honda 600VLX, the best choice I made as a beginner rider.

Thanks to DrDonna for submitting this personal review. From DrDonna, "I am a 46 year old female and have been riding since 97. I've owned 7 bikes since I passed the MSF course. I'm married to a motorcycle patrol officer who has helped me tremendously with my riding skills and confidence. Also a mom with 2 wonderful sons, Andy and Tony ages 19 and 16. We have a terrific website for beginner riders as well as seasoned riders. Tons of information on safety tips, pictures, events and rides."
