So, I just took my MSF course! I passed with flying colors. Now, I'm ready to go. I am in the process of purchasing my ninja (black 2008). I should have it in a couple weeks!! The little bikes they give you at the MSF course to learn on were great to learn on, but I am ready to get my bike and really get to know my own bike. I'm so excited!! Can't wait!! I'm new to the motorcycle hobby, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum.
