I suppose I should re-introduce myself...

No doubt most folks have seen me around the forums by now. I've been around for a long while now... However, the time has finally come. I've FINALLY gotten to getting a motorcycle. I went to the stealership and put down a $100 deposit to reserve myself a black, 2012 Ninja 250R. I worked them down to $5200 OTD, along with a big discount on buying and installing some frame sliders, as well as a discount on any gear I buy there. I think it's a fair enough deal. They claimed they've been selling them in the $5800 area. What do you guys think? Good deal, or have I been had?



At any rate, I figured I'd come along and re-introduce myself.... I'm Shawn, and you'll be seeing me rocking the out of a new 250, hopefully within a couple weeks.

right! I'm actually going to start vlogging on on YouTube once I get it. Mostly because I know that when I was choosing, even though there is an abundance of info on the 250, I always wanted more. So I want to create content on it.
