Got the 700XX a two wheeled sister today: a 2009 Ninja 250! It's my first street bike, and after an hour shakedown around the neighborhood, I have to say it's a blast! It has just over 4000 miles, and in great condition. There are some minor scratches, probably been laid down at low speed, but nothing major. Getting more used to the handling, and it feels like your flying! (no I'm not breaking the speed limit...) Just the sensation of focusing ahead and leaning the bike around curves, its very fun! The wobbles are gone, getting smoother all the time! Here's a picture of the new toy...

I already took the MSF Rider course, and would recommend it to anyone considering getting into the sport. Slow tight turns are the trickiest thing, and I am gradually getting better at them. This bike is a lot better than the 125 I was on during the course:lol:. I'm taking it easy and building up as I go, don't want to get hurt or tear up my bike. This is a lot of fun, but I'm not giving up the quad.:tup:

Well three weeks in and I've probably put 300 or so miles on it. I can go get my regular license this week, had the permit a month now. Been riding around the country backroads around my area and yesterday got out in some mid-day traffic here in town. I've put over 100 miles on it just this weekend. Having fun and learning more with each ride.

Done a few mods to it last week – blue wheel stripes, tank protector, and a rear fender eliminator. Also got rid of the amber reflectors on the front fender. This really cleans up the look. Here's some pictures.

I was actually seriously considering the new CBR250R until I bought this. The CBR is so new there's only a few in the states now. I was saving up for one and just couldn't wait any longer having the permit and no bike. I could get a used Ninja allot cheaper and aftermarket is more readily available since they've been out some time now.
