Talking A new Rider in the family

well yesterday, we finally did it!!! I went down to the bike shop and bought my wife a brand new 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 250R!!!
I got her an Alpinestars riding jacket,Shift hybrid X gloves, an HJC full lace helmet. She is going to get her permit this week. I'm looking into a MSF course for her. I think I'm more stoked than she is!!!
And the Verdict is...

She Rides!!!!!!

I love my FZ6, the riding position is comfortable,the power delivery is awesome,the handling is very predictable & stable. its not as quick or fast as a full on 600 supersport but its more than enough for the real world riding and weekend canyon carving.

Yep, it's a great life.

Much better to have her on her own bike than the back of yours, too, 'cause then she can't wack you when you take a corner too fast!


Congratulations to the "cheese and kisses", sportrider_fz6.
