Anyone with a ninja 250 or a rebel 250 I could borrow/rent?

Gonna teach a friend how to ride ... or at least give him a beginners course to see if he wants to continue with the MSF course.

let me know.

Yup ... I know the drill ... but he wants to "see" if he wants to do this seriously first.

Pay for your friends class. It'll probably be cheaper than fixing whatever they break on the motorcycle that you borrow.

MSF. Kill 2 birds with one stone - get the M endorsement and see if he likes 250/motorcycles. Even if he doesn't want to get into motorcycles, it's worth the money just in learning a new skill.

Ha his friends a midget!

Seriously though, If you don't trust your friend with your bike you most likely wont find someone stupid enough to let them borrow theirs.

Tell him fun costs money and take the MSF thats half the reason it exists to see if people have then reactions to ride and see if they like it as much as they think they do.

Or just call him a midget and give him your bike and get him some heels to make him taller lol

You can have mine....SIKE!

Just have him drop the money for the MSF, he can drop the bike all he wants for 2 days and he doesn't have to pay for gas either.

Borrowing a bike on behalf of him may end up hurting YOUR relationship with the lender....just a thought.

I think at Awsome Cycles if you dont like the course the first day they will refund most if not all of your money. I think. You can give them a call & check 281- 293-7663
