Another noob here.

Hi my name is Jimmy, and I have no riding experience at all. I plan on starting to ride by the spring time. Oh yea, im thinking of getting a ninja 300 for my first bike? good choice? im 5'5 weigh 140lbs . If i plan on moving up to a 600 in a year or when i feel im ready, Do you think my height will be an issue as in not being to plant my foot.

Welcome! I'm 5'6" and on the ninja 250, it wasn't bad, I can plant most of my feet on the floor. But you don't have to plant both of the feet! Just put one down

you can always do the one cheek sneak, or lower the bike. the 300 would be a fine starter.
