New member witht the smallest bike I have ever owned

Hello all,

I recently added a 2007 250R to my stable of bikes. In addition to the 250R I currently own:
2007 Honda GL1800 Goldwing
2004 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom
2009 Kawasaki KLR650
I bought the bike because I wanted something little to ride around on once in a while, though I had to tell my wife that this would be a great bike for my kid to learn on once he turns 16 in a little less than 2 years. Our local MSF course uses some Ninjas, and he would already have some time on a bike that size when he rides the one I got. She bought it, so I bought it...

It runs fine now, but it needs a bit of work, mostly on the valves, a bit of rust where the bars clip in, and a little bit of body work. It will need new tires too, but I have plenty of time (famous last words...) to get it back up to speed.

Thanks in advance for the info I hope to get off this site.

Thanks. Here is a picture of my newest toy...



I will make kid change the oil when he is the primary rider. For now it's mine to ride, I will maintain it, though I will "let" him help me, just to make sure he does know how when the time comes for him to take the reins.
