I am a 21 year old female looking to get my first bike this spring. I am very athletic, 5'6", 130 lbs. My boyfriend has a bike and has been giving me some tips. Any suggestions on a bike? Preferably a cruiser. I drive a stick shift car so is learning to ride a motorcycle similar? Is it hard to learn how to drive it and shift the gears? Should I get a bike for under $1,000 to learn on, since I read most people will crash their bike while learning.

The basic principles of a car clutch and a bike clutch are the same, so people who can drive a manual car find it easier to learn to ride than those who can only drive an automatic. You might find an older Honda Rebel for under $1k, but it's going to be a "beater." But if it runs and has good brakes and tires, go for it. It's a cruiser style and you'll enjoy learning on it.

In terms of helmets, I strongly agree to use and wear helmet at all times.
Why? Safety measures.

On learning stage, expect to fall or stumble while riding the bike. Accidents happen unexpectedly.. So better stay on the safer side.

Good luck.
