Not enough power for the Michigan sand and the bike is very heavy. The suspension does not give a rider much room to grow and improve.

I know a few people who have been very happy with the KX100


X2, brother started out on a TTR 225 man that thing was like riding a cow too heavy and suspension was shat, i started off on a XR 200 at 13 or 14 and quickly out grew it but then again this is for your wife so id say either the XR100 or CRF150 or CRF230
