I am really getting tired of immature squids. The other night I was riding with my friends. They deciced to go out of town and I decided to stay. I saw a small group of bikes at a gas station so I puuled in. As soon as I got my helmet off they began ripping my bike apart saying sh#@ like "why dont you ride a real bike". It really pissed me off because I know I could probably out ride every one of them.

I know what my bike is and what it isnt. I have had it for almost a year and a half. It truley is all I need for my ridding style. I have the utmost respect for the "real bikes" but I guess I just dont need one.

If a guy rode up on your group on a Ninja 250r, wouldnt you just be gald to have another rider?

last summer i was hanging out with some guys and the one kid at an ex500. two tough guys start knocking on the ex and an old hurricane 600.

so i walked over to the one's zx9r. i put my fingers on the tire to measure his chicken stripe (god i hate that term). he gives me a dirty look i pointed to my gsx-r, he looked down at the tire.

i started walking over. they started leaving.

both the ex500 and hurricane had some guys who could ride, but weren't a situation where they could get a better bike.

next time it happens, tell them when you have a big @#$!, you don't need an r1. :)

There are two guys on Ninja 250's that ride with our group, and they both are excellent riders. We've got another guy on an EX 500 that I hear (I wasn't there) kicked the asses of some guys on "real" sportbikes this weekend. It's the rider, not the bike.

I'm sorry that has happened to you. It's bull*hit. :mad:

Yes. A lot of posers are compensating for something, and the way they talked to you it just sounds like a whole lot of compensating.

You know what I hate it when people talk smack. If I did that and someone on a 250 smoked me I would crawl into a hole and die.

If you're in my neck of the woods I'll ride with you anytime ;).

Running down someone elses bike is a very STUPID thing to do, mainly because if they out ride you, you have no excuse. If you beat them, BIG DEAL, you beat an inferior machine. This sport relies so much on rider skill and not the machine, any comments like that must come from very immature (and probably slow) riders.

In my 35 yrs in this sport, I have learned that the truly fast riders do nothing but encourage and help other riders regardless of the other riders skill level.

Anyone agree with that?

Why do you have to bring that up again....I'm trying to get over it still!! Just kidding!!

On the real serious side. I love to ride and want to ride with others who share the same feeling. I do prefer longer rides through different elevations where the displacement might matter, plus I tend to bring along a passenger sometimes. All in all, if you like the 250 and wanna ride, let's go. I'll never put someone down because of what they ride, but I will talk about how you ride......:rolleyes:

Before I got my F4i, I use to have an ex500. I rode with a bunch of guys that had Gixxers, R1's, 929's, you name it. NO ONE EVER ragged me about my bike. Hell, we even had a couple of Beulls :barf: that rode with us. One guy that rode a 929 said that I was the only person that he'd ever seen get an ex500's front wheel off the ground, and he was impressed that I could hang with 'em thru the twisties. Even now that I have my F4i, I occassionally ride with all my co-workers who have HD's.

The way I look at it, it's not WHAT you ride, but the simple fact that you DO RIDE. Don't pay attention to those stupid squids. They were obviously compensating for something they lacked.

There are sportbike posers and then there are real riders.....
They are real easy to tell from one another!!
You and your 250 Ninja sound like a "real rider" to me and I'd go riding ANY time with ya buddy !!:)
Stay away from the posers,they ain't nothing but bad times!!
(Besides they show their stupidity like a neon-sign usually!!:D))

I think the operative word here is 'kids'!
I ride with younger riders quite often, but I prefer to stay far, far away from 'kids'. :eek:

DITTO....

I also ride with some younger riderz, and most, if not all of em, are eager to learn HOW to ride...not just posing..

As for the rider with the 250...I'm inclinded to be super impressed with riderz that know how to ride them 250's fast enough to stay up up with bigger bikes in the twisties....:D

Truth of the matter is, if those guys were riding the exact same bike as you, you'd probably spank the crap out of them. A big bike does not make a better rider. Opposite is true. Until you learn to truly ride the living snot out of a lower displacement or "lower class" machine, you're not going to be truly fast on a "superbike". I can guarantee you they're not even close to the capabilities of those bikes. Don't listen to those squids. Like someone else said earlier, I've NEVER come across better/faster riders that put down my machine (a lowly Kawi ZR-7 in all her ancient tech 750 cc naked glory). Those guys may pull away from you in the staights with their YamaSuzuHondawaki GSXRZXCBRR1000's but it's always fun making them sweat when it gets really twisty and making them run wide because they're panicking because you're on their rear wheel!

Oh, and by the way. I too want a 250 Ninja. My ZR is perfect for me as a daily commuter and it's sporty enough to put 200 miles per day (easily) in the twisties, but I really, really, really want a 250 Ninja as a track bike so I can truly learn to be a better and faster rider.

I second EVERYONES opinions... See what you get from these forums? REAL riders who are willing to help. As theyve been called before.. theyre just POSERS. The guys who ride for the image and cant really ride at all. Any POSER can twist the wrist but a real rider knows how to control it or is trying to learn. Those guys are in the wrong mindset and are going to get hurt. I hope they change it up before something happens. Keep riding that 250.. im glad to hear you started out with a smaller bike for learning.. more then i can say for myself... i got 600. :D Which is ok for a starter but reallisticaly still a powerful bike for a newb like me. Just steer clear of those guys.. theyre trouble. Ride safe!!! .. and have fun too.

Dude, my first bike was a Ninja 250, so what! You know why you're truely on the street.....just because they need big bikes to make up for size that they lack elsewhere, doesn't mean you have to let them destroy your buzz.......Aloha:D

Hey it all comes down to this, THEY MIGHT AS WELL RIDE HD CAUSE THEIR IN IT FOR THE IMAGE. Or they just have really small d!cks??

REAL riders don't do that shit. Real riders would ride scooters if that's all they could get their hands on cause they're there for the ride not the pose.

Don't sweat it, you didn't need them in your circle of friends anyway.
