    Remember most of the blokes are dirty old men and so forth but on the whole are mostly harmless.
    But do watch out some are real perverts

    Really depends on what style of bike you prefer; sports, motard, adventure, naked sports (hehe)

    Check out something like a Honda Hornet 250, Vtr250

    Hey 2kays, welcome to kb

    Sorry about the first impression, the male population here doesn't get out much...

    A cheap bike, only for commuting, for someone with short legs - I would say a GN250 would do the trick. They are cheap to buy, don't use much fuel, have an upright riding position which is great for traffic, relatively low seat height (I'm 5.4 and I could flat foot it with both feet), as light as you'll get in cheapish road bikes, if you drop it you won't damage much, and, the most important thing, nimble and fun to throw around in traffic.

    As a (pre) learner ... I doubt if she knows what she will know what she "Prefers" ..
