what does "ready" mean? you didn't ride very long how did you know you were ready? what mad skills did you p/u in 4 weeks, did you ride everyday? how many miles?
it means that ninja 250 is slow and who wants to ride an underpowered crapasaki

oh and have fun on your new squidbusa. for someone that preaches about the 250 you sure do ride the complete opposite

who said anything about being a better rider, me i'm mediocre........now do i have more experience then alot, yes. esp those that were "ready" to upgrade in a few weeks.

and yes people learn at diff. rates, but not in 3 -4 weeks riding......

all hail the busa.

I started on a 250 and went to a 600. I don't have inseam issues though... My personal experience with the weight of a bike is this, "Can I get it off the kick-stand?" *coughTL1000Rsareheavybeotchescough* If I cannot, then I don't ride that bike. Thankfully, I've done quite a few demos

Like mentioned before a Ninja 250 or Honda Rebel (250cc) if you are more into the "cruiser" riding type. Also the Rebel has a lower seat position so you will be able to plant both feet in the ground. See a lot of younglins just tip toeing at every light..!!! Not a good feeling imho.

I remember an old coworker at my previous job. He was the heavy type 200+ and like 5'10", he started with a Rebel and keep it for 5 years, went two times riding from here to Los Angeles, never a mechanical issue and also use the bike as his daily commuter. Due to "peer pressure" he upgrade to a used Harley-Davidson and in his first road trip to Galveston the bike broke down..!!! He was really upset about selling the Rebel!!. Few weeks later he trade the HD for a Honda Shadow. Great bike but he still miss the Rebel. For him it was the Greatest Bike in the world.
