Man to be honest....Take the MSF course at awesome cycles, they offer a discount for motohouston members. easy and fun to learn. in fact, they have some ninja 250 to learn on. azylum and i took the class. very informative.

Good choice for a first bike, I hope you are happy. Get a few safe months under your belt and you are welcome to try out my GSXR600 to see what kind of bike NOT to get as a second bike, but to taste the power of a 600. Then try an R6 and a F4 / RR and see which you want to buy.

Yeah, I'm going to take the class at Awesome Cycles since they have 250's to learn on... I just don't know exactly when I can make it to one. That's a long drive from my area! I might actually take a few days of vacation from work sometime in April to go to class and spend some considerable time on the bike.
That's why I said I won't be ready to rip up the streets for a month or two....

man i am not lying, there are closer places to take the MSF class but i promise you that awesome cycles is the best!!! Just let them know you are a member on here and he will give you a discount. I learned alot. no regrets. as far as riding now, try not to gain to much muscle memory because the class may teach you a different way of doing things and may have to break some of your bad habits. but definately see David aka "Challen" (on here). the best! The ninja 250 is fun as to ride and is very forgiving. you WILL enjoy it

How much of a discount they give there for members? Every $ helps! :P

I'm sure there's no way I could teach myself, so basically all I'm going to do before the class is practice slow speed start/stops to get a good feel for the bike. Strictly slow speed, and straight-line stuff in the short road out front. No traffic. Get used to the controls, so that I won't have to *think* about what to do to shift gears. Then in the class, I can take in more of the other stuff.
And Challen has been recommended by a few people that I've talked to, so he must be a good teacher. When I sign up for the class, I'm going to make sure and get in a class that he's teaching!

they teach you how to take corners and turns, quick stops, shifting, take off, swerving, ETC. The bonus for take the class is that when you go to DPS to get your motorcycle lic. all you have to take is the written part. may even get a discount on insurance. check this out for awesome cycles: http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=24533
