New Rider!!

Hi Everyone, I Just entered into the world of sportsbikes. Glad to be part of the 250 family! Just recently got the new 2011 special edition white/black 250r Ninja, It was just too damn good looking to not buy. But of course im new in every aspect of riding. So any new tips would be helpful. Of course what im hearing is new tires? do i buy them at the dealership or where? and what is the going price. anything else would be helpful. I also have no Riding partners ATM, also. I live in san antonio NE side but i can travel as i got this beast now.haha. Thanks

You won't need new tires unless you plan to race your bike. I've been running on my stock tires for 4500 miles and I've definitely pushed them several times with no issues.

Training, practice and gear are all vital... be safe!
