Seat Covers and other "girlie" accessories
Hello ladies! I am 30 years old, have been on the back of a bike since before I can remember, and have FINALLY gotten my permit! I moved to a quiet rural area last year and am so excited to be in an area where I finally feel comfortable learning how to ride. Needless to say, my bf, my dad, and my brother are flooding my inbox with bikes and "must have" accessories, along with all kinds of articles.
So, I have looked at, and sat on, every bike I thought I would be interested in. I absolutely love the look and feel of the '08 ninja 250s. At 5'7", 125 lbs, the bike feels light, comfortable and easy to handle. Most importantly, I have fallen in love with it and think it will help give me the confidence I need and desire to get out there and practice as much as possible. I am taking the MSP course starting 5/15 and hope to find my bike by the time I have my license. My bf is now taking to everyone on Craigslist to find the right bike. I've exhausted all the articles I can find for new riders and have now starting thinking about the fun, fashion stuff!
I'm dead set on a black ninja. I'd really love to find some hot pink accessories, including a seat cover, maybe an annodized sprocket, grips, etc. Anyone know where to look? I'm not finding much in girl's colors.
Also, does anyone have any good or bad thoughts on slip-on exhausts? I've looked at jardine, muzzy, & yoshi.
I'd love tips from everyone, on learning to ride, the msp course, the ninjas, parts & accessories, and anything else you think I should know. I've spent so much time around bikes that I didn't expect to feel like such a newbie but now I realize that I might know a whole lot about being a passenger, but nothing about being a rider or owner!
