I was chasing around behind a Ninja 250 Saturday morning. Blew my mind what that rider could do, on that bike. Certainly not a limitation for a beginning rider, and the 300 would be all the better.

^^^ Agreed on basically all posts above. The rider lifestyle throws in some unexpected curves, especially price. Do get all the gear - solidly for the obvious safety reasons, but also there is a certain "rider-to-rider" respect amongst those of us that wear our gear.

Insurance is higher on anything in the "super-sport" category.

Last, just know it's only a (short) matter of time before you find yourself posting on here "I dropped my bike today." So yeah, get yourself something cheap and used to start on, and I (/we) highly suggest something forgiving to learn on for the first few months.

If you know you're the type of person to like speed then I suggest you buy a used small bike first and then move up to a supersport. Or maybe you can try for the sv650. I LOVE that bike.

Dude I haven't ridden with Cuong in a while but I would hazard to say that he will still tear me up on RR on his 250. He used to pass me and leave and I was on an SV with double the horsepower...

Maybe I could at least keep up now.

I think the 300 is gonna be all kinds of good. I am actually waiting til there are enough used ones on the market that I can get one for cheap
