    I rate 'em as a fairly good bike.

    Fixed it...
    The only thing wrong with a perfect ride to work is that you end up at work.

    well, went down to Causeway last Saturday... havent been down there for ages... (When did that fitness place popped up?)

    anyway, had a look at the Ninja 300 and 400; small and nimble looking; Even the Z300 looked alright...

    However, I think the missus is set on the Honda CMX (aka Rebel); low, easy for her to get on it, low center of gravity allows her to lift the bike... she seems to really into it....
    will get a test ride after we get back from our Singapore trip....

    looks much better than the old Virago 250

    Any recommendation for a instructor near Bentley for a refresher course?

    Not 400cc but might be worth considering; http://hondagrom.com.au/

    Fits the bill for:

    • seat height

    • price

    • fun factor/confidence building aspects
