Talking Newbie to street riding

Hello,

I'm Paul from pauls valley oklahoma. Just purchased a honda rebel 300 non abs version on 04/06/19 had zero miles on it when i got it. My wife wanted something we could both ride and she could flat foot this one so we got that. Yesterday after being uneasy with the weight practicing her fundamentals, I went a got her a used 2014 grom that she can balance at low speeds a lot more easily. The grom has 2800 on it i believe and is in serious need of new grips and rear shock. A little more about myself, I'm 34, have rode dirt bikes off and on since i was 14, married, 4 kids (its amazing i can even own a bike). Anyways I had looked around the forum and thought this is the one i should join. Everyone seems friendly and helpful.

As soon as she finds out if she has an upcoming Saturday off when i also have the weekend off we plan on going. On the grom......... it's her size (she's 5'4) and is way better than a ruckus i talked her out of.
