Hi all!

For the record: I am a total noob in motorcycling and have never ridden one. :) However, I signed up for the Safety Training Course and will start that in a month.

I was thinking about a new Ninja250R to start me off in this new world. Does anyone have other suggestions? Maybe a used bike for ~2500-3000$. What are my options? Oh and I have a helmet (from my autocross days:))

Another clubrsx defector huh? :p

I'm in the same situation as you... brand new rider. I'm planning on picking up a used ninja 500 as soon as I take my MSF which unfortunately won't be until august.

I did a little searching and found this:

1. Something used if possible.
2. Something from the list of good newbie bikes, here -> http://www.sportbikeworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19625
3. Something not on this list here -> http://www.sportbikeworld.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19656
4. Something that leaves you with enough $$$ to afford a full set of gear.

:thumb: I love my little SV650s, which I investigated on the recommendations of the lists. :D

Good suggestions for first bikes. There are other threads with similar recommendations.

Make sure you have enough $$ for gear (check that helmet for mc use) and insurance. Just in case, don't buy until *after* your course.
