I picked up my '05 Ninja 250 about a month ago. Low miles and cosmetic damage, very typical. My former ride was a '81 XJ750, so this is quite a change! Seems like going from a butcher knife to a scalpel, I think I've shifted more times in the last month than I did in two years of driving the Seca.
I ride in the Champlain Valley, in both New York and Vermont. Always looking for folks to ride with. I have a couple of guys I ride with from time to time, with bikes ranging from a SV650, to a Sporty, to a BMW airhead. I know a bunch of good roads in the Adirondacks.
I will be using the Ninja for a commuter and carver. In terms of mods, I'm interested in a more comfortable seat and I will be looking into different tires and braided lines when the time comes. I'm also into 70's bikes, CBs, XLs, and strokers. I have enough project bikes at the house right now to keep me busy for the next half-decade or so, but that doesn't mean I'm not constantly trolling CL and Ebay for more.
