Hey guys and gals, so a little about me I am 18 and just starting to get into riding. I was going to get a 650R but decided to get a 250R to become a better rider, affordability and insurance rates as well as be safe and I hear they are a lot of fun in the twistes! I got my Alpinestar textile/mesh jacket and Scorpion Gloves as well as a Bell helmet that fit my head like it was made for me. I am picking up my used 2008 Ninja 250R in Black this thursday and will post pics when I get it. My gear is all black so I plan on getting some clear reflective tape for it so I can be seen at night. I wont be able to the the bike till Oct 15th though since I am signed up to take my MSF course on the 13th and 14th through T.E.A.M Arizona. I also hope to pick up some Alpinstar One-O-One ridding shoes before the couse and a Dark smoke shield for my helmet. Cant wait to learn as much as I can hear and to get out their and hit the road!
