    Thinking about getting a entry level bike (first bike), and found an ad for a 2008 Ninja 250R that's been sitting for a few years (currently does not run). It has a missing title, and the seller is asking $800 or best offer. Odometer is at 13244. As a first bike to learn on, is this a good idea...

    So I recently crashed my old 250 because of some idiot who cut me off during a turn, as I was forced off the road and into one of the worst wrecks I've ever seen a motorcycle in while not even going fast. I am ridiculously pissed off because not only do I feel victimized, I also feel like this...

    I was thinking about buying a fender eliminator but then I thought why spend $100 for it when I can just cut the fender.. I am sure this has been done before. This took me all of 5 minutes to rid my bike of the ugly fender.

    I am a new, aspiring rider and have been seriously looking into purchasing a Ninja 250 for my first bike. I will probably be going the used route for my first bike so that I don't cry myself to sleep after my first drop. I've been browsing Craigslist and Dealer adds over the last few weeks...
