I just got my first bike on july 18th 2008
The 250 is definitely a perfect starter bike, i am a female, 5'6" and i knew, without even seeing this bike other than on website pictures and online, that this was gonna be my first bike to own...
I now have my fantasies come reality haha...I'm a grad student with a convertible (97' eclipse spider) and a motorcycle. It's amazing what you can do with financial aid money! (oh and note: if I ask dumb questions in the future, don't hate: just throw me in the right direction
