hey all, i just completed my MSF course. im a little dude. 5'4" 150lbs. i was originally planning to get a honda shadow 600, but the dude flaked out on me. im currently looking at a kawasaki vulcan 800 or a honda rebel 250. i know, huge difference there. reason theres such a big gap is because i have to make a trade as i dont have enough cash on hand currently to just outright buy a bike, so my choices are limited. my question is..hows the weight difference between bikes? after riding on the 250s at the MSF course all day, my knees were hurting. i think part of it is that the bike i was on was too tall for me. is there a huge difference trying to hold up the different size bikes at stop lights and such? i know bikes will handle differently and be more or less forgiving of mistakes the larger or smaller you get. i guess im just nervous about how much strain the weight will put on my legs.
