My GF wants to get a bike. She has ridden small bikes (250ish) but it was
12-15 years ago. Recently did the MSF and passed first try. She rides
often with me two-up on a GS Adventure.

Have looked a lot at BMW 'F' and 'G' bikes and like the size and weight.
Recently found a great deal on a 2003 R1150R in great condition well equipped with seat at about 30.3".

She is 5'6" and weighs around 130#. Is it unreasonable to skip over the smaller bikes? Any women's opinion on this.

It may be too much about how much I like it. It's a classic...and I want her to easily cruise with me on the 1200GSA....but too big for limited experience?

Comments very much appreciated in advance
