I remember my first freeway ride, quite the exhilarating experience.

Getting caught in the rain for the first time was especially with no gloves. Rain drops stings on the knuckles at 60mph+. It only took one ride to adapt to ATGATT.

keep the 250 for a good while before moving to a 600.


Good to hear things are going well for you!

Congratulations, bro. I've got a Ninja Turtle myself... Sometimes, I really hurt for a faster motorcycle, but honestly I think we'll be better off in the long run.

I remember my first freeway riding, I was with a LOT of very experienced riders on 600/1k SS bikes. Bevo and the boys... Down 59, then 45 from Nasa Rd. 1 all the way to the galleria area... Scariest, most fun day I ever had on a motorcycle.


EDIT: to expand on what Solracer said... I plan on keeping my 250 for about a year (or more) before moving up to a 600. It pays off...

Congratulations noobie, you still have ways to go, but you are doing it right. Keep it up and stay safe. If you are interested soon enough you stretch her legs at the track and see that a 250 very well could be more than enough..

Do you remember the first time you sold your bike and quit riding?

Sounds like you're doing everything the right way.

No rush on moving up either, I know guys on here that pass 600's on 250's at the track all day long...
