Talking Nola girl says HI!

Hey guys-
im new here and just wanted to hi and i hope i can learn alot from this forum.
I'm a 25 and about to buy my first bike TODAY~!
I'm having a friend ride it home for me until my MSF classes start oct 3,4,5.
I'm getting a 04 kawi 250 for 2k. Its it excellent shape with 4800 miles on it.. i figure it will be the perfect starter bike since its pretty light and i can afford it.
I also got my new icon helmet today =] its pretty much gangsta'.
heres the link if u wanna check it.

Don't forget about the rest of you. Jacket, gloves, pants, boots. You got it all, right?

You'll find the right bike for you, especially as the season winds down. Just keep your eyes peeled and your fingers searching. My congrats on starting out right too (bike size, MSF, gear)
