LOL, yeah there's always exceptions. In your time there was no social media and as you said there was nobody around to ask. In any event you got an education to make a better choice the next go around. Here we have a tall new rider that has access to information. Now if he said he was thinking of a Honda CR 500 as a first bike. The choice boils down to either a 2T or 4T. I would suggest a 4T but he seems decided on a 2T and nothing wrong with that. He's looking at a popular bike so if he decides it's not for him it won't be hard to sell.
