First off, I’d like to say that even though I would love a motorcycle, I know jack shit about them. Of course, this post isn’t so much for me as it is for a character of mine I am currently developing. So, if any motorcycle enthusiasts or people who know anything at all read this, can you please tell me what are the most popular bikes for beginners? This character I am working on is a teenager, and so would not have anything overly fancy (if fancy at all), but for the story’s sake I do want to be as accurate as possible. Besides the models (my favorites being Yamaha and Suzuki because some of the models I’ve seen are short people friendly), what basics must one know about them? Maintenance for example, brakes, steering, etc.? Thanks for taking the time to read this!
