New to riding & new to Kawasaki 250's.
We bought ourselves a 2009 Kawsaki 250R Special Edition (The green/black/white one).
I say "we", but in reality, it's my wife's bike. We recently decided to get off our boring butts and try something new, so off we went to the license bureau to pass our M1 written test. Now we're registered for a riding course that also administers the M2 tests, so by the end of this month, we should be well on our way to gaining some riding experience on this little 250 that can.
Once we know for sure that this is something we want to fully commit to, we will start the search for a bike more suitable for me. I do love the 250 for it's many great features though (gas mileage, insurance cost, looks, etc), but I feel that a bigger bike will "fit" me better. Nothing to do with engine power really, just the actual size of the bike.
Anywho, looking forward to getting to know the ins & outs of the 250 anyway since I will be doing most of the wrench turning on this little sucker.
