Not sure if that is the best choice for a first bike....especially with no riding experience. The best advice that I can give is "be careful" and look at all your options!!! Why not get yourself a first bike that is much lower and easier to ride? Experienced riders drop these bikes all the time, they really are a unique bike compared to most out there. Not trying to bust your bubble, just wanting to make sure that you are thinking this all out. I used to think that the Stroms were an "OK" bike for a new rider, I have since changed my mind. These bikes are long, tall, and top heavy compared to almost anything out there. Yes there are some inexperienced riders who went out and bought a Strom, and will tell you that they are getting along just fine. These bikes very simply like to fall down, whether it be the riders fault or not. There is a very good reason why so many crash bars get installed, and why so many people are in need of a new turn signal. Many of us on this site truly care for the safety of others....that is why I am telling you all this.
