Finally...I got my bike!!!!

So after months of trolling this forum and multiple other Ninja 250R forums, scouring craigslist and dealers, and drooling over y'alls bikes.... I FINALLY found my Ninja 250R. I picked it up this saturday. I really wanted a Sunbeam Red or Passion red (depending on year) but i felt that this was a good deal, and the best of 10 different used 2008+ ninja 250's i looked at. Its a 2010, Metallic Island Blue, with 1148 miles, is in damn near mint condition (no dents, scratches or cracks in fairings), frame sliders already installed, has 2 years left on the Good Times Protection Plan warranty, and came with 2 helmets, 2 keys and the original Kawasaki tools. He was asking $3200, I paid $2900. Here are some pics

Right after loading it up & getting ready to make the 5 hour drive home

Right after getting it home & about to unload it


A photoshopped picture of my future plans for it (I found the pic on Google of one already painted silver, so if this is any member on here's bike, I will give you credit for the pic. I just photoshopped stripes, decal, and eliminated rear fender)


My neighbor owns a paint and body shop. He said if I pull all the fairings and the tank and give them to him, he can do the whole Silver Streak Mica paint job for $250 (the friend deal). Then I'm gonna add red/black "Ninja" decals, red reflective wheel stripes, black "KAWASAKI" decals on the lower portion of the fairings (yet to photoshop in), red "ZX-2R" decals on the rear cowl areas next to the rear seat (yet to photoshop in), and a red LED glow kit. I also want to do the rear fender eliminator kit, add an integrated smoked tail light, and do flush mount front blinkers (still not sure about that yet though)

Let me know what you think about it currently and share your thoughts on my future plans. I know my future plans may not be everyones cup of tea, so try not to flame me too hard, lol.

Yeah I gotta admit, the more I look at the blue, the more I like it.
