^ ya for real. your obsessing a bit here, bro...but its cool. im sure we were all in that "mode" at some point in the start.

but to answer your concern, im 6 foot, and i feel just fine on the 250's. im not sure, but if your the same guy, i think you saw me sitting on it at the dealer while i was setting the idle. sure its not the biggest bike, but imo the space is adequate enough for what its made to do. zip around at fun, but not quite clinicly insane speeds, and get you where your going,...

I'm a big guy, 6'1" and 230lbs, and the older style 250 is my daily driver. I have a 58 mile round trip, per day, and it's not uncomfortable for me. The stiffness of the seat is the worst thing for me! It pulls my big around quite nicely, without getting me into real trouble. But I feel very comfortable on it.
Don't worry about what anyone says, just try it out, and have fun!

(PS, if you wanna buy the '08, I'll ride it, and you can ride on my '01... I want the new style 250!) :P

What if someone say's YES ,then the next guy say's NO then what .......seriously make up your own mind .

Devilman and LS_DM, you seem like your getting mad at my noobiness... I apologize.

Q: How many times can we keep our mouth shut?
A: I never asked you to shut your mouth. I asked for your opinion on my fitment with the bike. I've never owned one before and the sales rep. told me it looks like I'm a tad bit too tall but it isn't a big deal. I wasn't sure if he was being honest or if he wanted a sale. The way the tank is designed, I assumed that "cave" space was made for your thighs because if I had normal sized legs, it looked like it would have fit there.

Q: What if someone says yes, and another says no, THEN WHAT?
A: I'd look for something sticking out. In this case, notice how EVERYONE said I'd be fine.. EVERYONE. I asked if I'm too tall for it so I can look out for multiple common answers, and I got it.

I've checked out many bikes since pre-MSF (2.5 years ago) to post-MSF. I've never wanted to get a larger displacement bike as my first bike and with the release of the new Ninja, I've clearly made up my mind. I'm just making sure by asking questions I still have from being a noob.

Honestly dude, I consider $4,000 a lot of money, and I don't want to spend it on a bike that I wont be comfortable on. I asked riders if my sitting position with my leg hitting the side of the tank would be an issue because they have some what of an experience to this, at least a lot more than me. This forum is here for me to look up previous posts/create posts to further my knowledge. I make these posts because my knowledge is next to none. So please, don't be so selfish to tell me to shut my mouth.. I still have a lot to learn and I'd like to keep learning (hopefully be as knowledgeable as you). You telling me to shut my mouth will only hinder that.

Once again, I do apologize your making yall upset. I'll be more careful not to make useless posts that help no one but myself; I'll try to be more generous. <<(not being rudely sarcastic, being serious)

Inshallah, I'm going to the dealership tomorrow to put a $500 deposit down to hold the first Green Kawasaki they get.

Edit: And the "Inshallah" thing.. it means "If Wills". its been a habbit for me to say/type that as I speak... I might unknowingly type it here and there.
