    If she knows cycling, it will be much easier as far as balancing the bike is concerned.
    Yes, CBZ is a powerful bike for a lady, especially if she is learning to ride a bike for the first time.
    Trying borrowing your friends Scooty, initially, if they have one, then she should be comfortable learning to ride your CBZ.
    My wife rides the CBZ and P220F effortlessly. That confidence came after a lot of patience and practice.
    All the best, dear friend.

    Why should men have all the fun with Harley Davidson? Bangalore-based HR professional Sheeja Mathews today became the first woman in India to own the iconic cult motorcycle, thus breaking the stereotype of only tattoo sporting muscular hunks riding the bike.

    "I didn't know that I was the first woman to buy a Harley Davidson in India till the company people told me. I thought of upgrading to a Harley when they opened a showroom here," Mathews.

    When asked what prompted her to go for a Harley Davidson, she said: "Well, I have been riding my husband's bike for the past 10 years and I thought it was high time I upgraded."



    Mother of a 7-year-old son, Mathews said even her son is excited about the new bike, on which the family has spent about Rs. 8 lakh in total, although the ex-showroom price of the bike is Rs. 6.5 lakh.

    "Oh, he wants me to drop him to school on the bike so that he could show off his mother's bike to his friends," she said, adding, she would be taking the bike on long rides on weekends.

    A self-proclaimed foodie and a shopaholic like any other woman, Mathews said she has been a drag racer as well.

    "I do drive a (Tata) Safari and (Chevrolet) Cruze but I love bikes," she said, adding, her businessman husband chipped in 20 per cent of the amount for her Harley Davidson.



    She should be an inspiration to all those girls who are going to marry us "bikers". Just imagine the pride her son will have everyday when she drops him in his school. Everybody will see her as a supercool mom. 10 years on her husband's RD ! He couldn't have asked for anything better. Trully awesome and awe inspiring.

    But I am afraid since my WIFE will be asking for one now.
    The other day SHE was watching in some channels the factory Tour of Harley and she is already daydreaming .
    so are we expecting something soon??

    Wooow way to go mathews ....!!!
    Twist the accelerator and a Tsunami of G-Forces hit you, reaching 100 kmph in a matter of seconds, all 33 horses and 22 Nm of torque giving you what modern science would call an orgasm.
