I have a 2000 Ninja 250. I really like the look of the 08 model. My husband wants me to get a 600, but i'm only 5'3". I'm just afraid that i'll have problems with the weight of antthing bigger. I would'nt mind getting a 600, but i really don't want to depend on someone else having to pick it up for me if i drop it! Don't get me wrong, I hope not to go around dropping my bike, but if i do, i dont want to feel like a wimp.
