New Female Rider!

Hey guys I just bought an 09 ninja 250. Been looking at buying bike for years now and I finally did it. but yes I am one of the girls who bought the bike with zero riding experience except for riding on the backseat. Any pointers y'all have for me would be fantastic! Thanks.

MSF? Endorsement safety class? I'm trying to catch up on acronyms. And I'm getting used to leaning around a turn but it kinda sketches me out a little. Tips?

Keep the dirty side down. Stay on two wheels. Then you should be good to go. Take the MSF class for sure. You'll get all the tips you need to better hone your two wheel skills.

MSF- Motorcycle Safety Foundation
The best place for you to learn to safely ride your bike.

As for leaning don't try to steer the bike with your body so much if that's what your doing. If you really want some good study material check out Twist of the Wrist 2. Teach you everything you want to know.

Welcome.

Hi, welcome to Motohouston (MH)! And also welcome to a new way of life!

I'm a also a female (some people can't tell from my name) and have been riding for five years now, and have accomplished a lot during those years. Best thing I did was joining a group for noob rides with my gear.

But, you need gear. What do you have so far? I look back now and can't believe how lucky I was to get away with only a helmet and gloves basically. The group I was with at the time made me have a jacket before I went on a ride with them. Now if it's a "casual" ride, I wear helmet, textile jacket with impact protection, textile pants with impact protection, knee guards, gloves, boots. If it's more agressive or just simply the weather is right, some of my stuff gets switched out for leathers.

Once you get enough seat time, I highly suggest doing a track day. With Ridesmart, they will let you get 50% off of your first track day (that comes out to either $60 or $70, depending on the track), and they will let you borrow the required leathers and boots (I'm 5'2" and was able to wear a set of their leathers). The track day will help you learn what the bike can do and what you can do. It's not a race, it is a riding school.

Don't hesitate to reach out on here, lots of people willing to help. Especially us girls!

I highly suggest the MSF course and at Awesome Cycles. I took my course with no experience except for being a passenger and learned alot. I then went out and bought an SV650 and have been riding it ever since. (well until recently) My advice to you would be to take it slow and to learn the feel of the bike and not try to "show off" or be one of the guys just yet. Leaning in a turn is scary at first, but the harder you push the smoother it is. Good luck with the riding.
