I bought my wife a new CBR954RR for christmas, brought it home and put it next to the tree she was extatic. I rode it today, dam that thing is fun in the twisties, and it is a straight wheeling machine. I must be crazy to buy that thing for her as a first bike, but she didn't like anything else. I put a rev limiter on it and set it at 5500 rpm until she gets used to it. Then I will move it up gradually.
