Hi, Welcome :D!

Always good to start out on a machine like an EX250. If you can, you should take the MSF course...they will teach you how to do things like make U turns. Good luck on the new bike!

unfortunately all of those classes around this area (that i know about) are full ALREADY! The first openings they have for beginners is August and hopefully I won't be a beginner by then...

Z - you might try contacting SMART, Inc. They are based out of Topeka, but do classes all over the state. I took mine through them at the BCCC location in El Dorado.
Their URL is www.smartbiker.org
It was a pretty fun class, they are a good group of people!

BTW, I'm in southern kansas, about 1.5 hours or so south of Topeka.

Close to Topeka

Deidra: I live and work in Leavenworth, KS...so I guess I'm pretty close to Topeka. I have a 2000 Suzuki Hayabusa, which I ride every weekend with other sportbike riders in the area (Kansas City mostly). We are always happy to have new riders join us. Let me know if you're interested in joining us, or if Leavenworth is too far for you.

I'm always looking for people to ride with. Of course, you'd have to ride nice, your bike would eat mine for lunch! ;) But hey, I didn't kill myself today and I didn't kill the bike once so I must be doing *something* right!
