Smile Hello from Minnesota

Hello, just picked up a couple of 250 ninja's and this looked like a good forum to join.I haven't lurked around yet but what I've seen so far I like.
A little back ground, I'm a 49 year enthusiast I've raced at the club level both as a novice and expert with the CRA in Minnesota for ten years although I haven't raced in a few years due to a hectic work schedule and recovery from non motorcycle injury.
I picked up a 2000 250 Ninja and a parts bike to build up into a little fun bike to throw in the back of my truck when I go out of town for work.I convinced a co-worker to also so we'll have something to do on our down time.
I'm not super computer savvy so if I figure out how to post pics in near future I'll show some pics of the rebuild (one of the winter projects).Going to do some mods and upgrades.I'm sure some of my ideas have already been done by some of you so searching and asking questions will be in order.
If some of the questions seem redundent to some of the more seasoned members my appologies,but as stated above I'm not that savvy at searching and I join forums for the interaction and good natured "ribbing" I enjoy on some of the other forums I belong to for some of my other bikes.
Hope I haven't bored you all to death with my intro.Safe riding to you all.
cheers

Just had surgery to fix a broken ankle from the last CCS Midwest round so it may be a minute until I start building.
