Meet my new baby

So I was finally able to go to the dealership and buy a new 2012 Ninja 250r!

I know a few of you are going to say that it's not good for a beginner to get a brand new motorcycle, and you guys have very valid points. BUT! I already got it, so please don't say that I should have gotten a used one because I'm a stubborn SOB who insisted that I get a new 250r because it's the last year in production for the US market. I know the what the consequences are for getting a new bike as a beginner, and you can tell me 'I told ya so!' all that you want after I something up. Oh and I want to build up my credit as well.

Her name is Poison Ivy, and I plan on having a lot of fun on her. I plan on modding it out, and the first few mods that I'm going to do is get a Tank Pad, Shogun Frame Sliders, red reflective wheel tape, red led's... eventually I'm going to get a fender eliminator, but that's not high up there on the list since I don't mind that fender too much (but it will be removed eventually).

Nice buy. Congrats. The 2012 250's were going cheap enough due to close outs that buying used seemed like a waste of money. I went with the 300 and got the abs.

Enjoy and keep it rubber side down.

FCKING IDIOT!!! WTF! Why did you buy yourself that 250 instead of buying me one! :( That thing is too shiny! LOL! j/k!

Man that thing looks great, You will love her and love how agile the bike is. Sure the power of the larger bikes is nice. But the ease of riding, maneuverability and durability of a 250 is unbeatable. I miss my 250. So I am very jelly. I had a 2010 250r SE like Cuongnutz has.

Be safe, Keep her clean, and keep the shiny side up
