Noob From Spring

Sup. Took an MSF and got my license for a couple years but life as it does directed me away from getting a bike. Been Youtubing and researching my first bike. BB thread was a good read and re-enforced what most experienced riders have been recommending.

That said I am looking at at Ninja 250/300 ... been browsing the used the bikes but dealers are making great deals on 2012 250 so might go that route. I have never been very trusting of used vehicles because you just never know how the machine was cared for. That being said .. its not if but when I put a dent in the I will just have to fix it.

Not a speed demon just like the wind. Been riding 3 wheelers / 4 wheelers all my life.. some small dirt bike experience from riding friends bikes years ago. Looking forward to getting on two wheels. Prob will stick with a smaller CC bike for a while because I don't have the "speed junky rush" .. I just want to ride.

The people I know with bikes have cruisers so looking forward to getting my bike and meeting up with some other sport riders so .. I will keep yall updated on my search.

Do have my first question...looking for some advice on how to approach test riding a bike being its been a while since I have been on one. Can't help but be a little nervous about jacking up some on test run.

..also will be looking into taking the advanced MSF course with own bike to brush up on some slow speed skills.

Welcome to yah!
Just down the street from you. Hit me up when you get your bike we can cruise.
I ride a 2011 250r special edition, and I love my bike. But if i could go back I think I would trade it for a 300. Always wanting more speed now, and after testing out a 300 I know I definitely could have safely rode a 300 as my starter.
Probably not a 636 which is what I really want now.

Hmm...something don't add up here. You claim to have bumped this old thread intentionally but added that you were "looking for riders in the area as well" and even a "Welcome"?

FYI, no one is going to think less of you for bumping an old thread...noob mistake; And good luck with the bike hunt!

I think you read too much into it. But thanks for the input.
