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.
