Just wanted to say hi

Hey guys I got my permit not too long ago and I was looking into getting a ninja 250 or 500. I figured this would be a great place to get advice.

If you have never been on a street bike Ninja 250cc is the place to start.....my buddy started with one and after he got a hang of street bike he moved up to 600cc but he went with CBR....regardless he did the right thing by moving up gradually....I did the same but my first bike I started on was Honda 70cc dirt bike, my friend's bike, then I bought me a Yamaha Enduro 125cc.

Good luck with whatever bike you choose, ride safe!

I recently bought a ninja 250 and I've been having a lot of fun with it. Its a 2005 and I bought it with only 1800 miles.

Not bad at all.....keep that baby in good shape and when you are ready to move up you can sell it for the same price you paid for......those are hot bikes now with gas prices moving up all the time

+1000 you got one hell of a steal! and they definitely keep their value so you could easily sell it for the price you paid, if not more!

Good buy, you can re-sell a 250 very easily when your ready to move up.
