I reckon I better do this

My name is Kenny (I should probably use it as a user name, right?) and I am 23 years old. I am a automotive parts specialist (read: work at an auto parts store). I am beginning my motorcycle riding career with a 09 ninja 250r. I bought it about two weeks ago.
It is special edition green, unfortunately, I am color blind and cannot fully appreciate the color. My friends tell me its a nice color though.

So far, I have just short of 400 miles on my bike. All of them mine except for 2.
I am fortunate to live on the Chesapeake bay in Virginia, which offers outstanding riding scenery on beginner friendly roads.

I began googling and stumbled across this website. After reading the forums, I have decided to join. I find everyone here to be real helpful and informative without the rude remarks seen in other forums. I look forward to reading and participating in future threads.

Welcome!

I don't mean to be rude, especially since you have the forum on such high standard, but I am curious to know if being color blind affects you on the road in any form, either riding a bike or driving a car? How about stop lights?

Again, welcome, and you don't have to answer those questions if you don't feel like it.

Welcome and congrats! The 250 is the best bike to learn on!

Interesting. You should have bought a red bike then (or black, I suppose)

Welcome

I have a friend who's color blind with reds. They appear as brown.

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.
