Hi everyone Im new so I thought I would just say hi and tell you a little about myself. I have a great boyfriend, Dave, and we'll be together for 5 years in feb. From the day I met him he has begged me to get a bike. So in the next few months when the dealer calls me, I plan to purchase my first bike. I've been looking around and I feel in love with the 08 ninja 250r. It took me a while to figure out what color (black or red) but I finally chose red. I'm hoping that my experince on the back of Dave's bike with help me learn how to ride a little easier. I chose red because it will help me been seen on the road better and Dave cant buy me pink apparel....lol. I've never been a pink kinda girl.

Welcome!

Go for it, girl. I bought a 2002 VFR 800 Interceptor 6 years and 30,000 miles ago and have loved every minute of it. My husband, son and dog ride everywhere with me (although somewhat slower sometimes). We live in Oregon so the possibilities are endless. Fabulous twisties everywhere.

I took riding classes at a Honda riding school and followed up with 4 track day events. It really improved my riding skills. (I had already been riding for 15 years or so, but mostly cruisers). Owning a sportbike changed my whole outlook. My bike is so fast, light, and easy to handle. Just mention "Track Day" and my heart flutters. It is an adrenaline pumping experience and really sharpens your skills fast. You also don't have to worry about what around the corner or what's on the road. I love it fast, low, and off the side.

You are absolutely right about red...it is the easiest color to see on the road...makes you more visible. Mine is red too. I have a Nicky Hayden Aria Helmet with a red/yellow design, so I had the entire design laid out on my bike. It looks fast in the parking lot.

I hope you have as much fun with your new bike as I have had with mine. I know you have great times ahead riding the twisties with your boyfriend. Ride hard and wear leather. :D

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.
