When I was about 10-13 I had ramps for bicycles and I would take 10ft gaps or so and this fed the need for a dirt bike. Around 13 I got a pw80 automatic (lol) and rode it in my backyard, with a little wooden jump. Than for a couple years I would just go over and look at my uncles motorcycles until I got a new dirt bike. And now i'm looking at getting a sportbike..

I got into riding because I like sport bikes and wanted to save some money commuting to work...just took the MSF and have about 100 miles and 1 curb impact/drop incident under my belt.

(Curb 1 Zen 0, but it's not over yet )

I like riding alot but it's a whole new world with a heck of a lot of things to get used to and learn how to do. Some things are very attractive like the freedom of riding itself, some things are intimidating like accident statistics...and there's a big learning curve too because it's nothing like driving a car (or M1A1 Abrams tank, of which I used to drive a lot of ) obviously.



I'm also revaluating my original decision to buy the Katana 600 and considering a smaller 2008 Ninja toofiddy, partly because with my limited experience my observations are different and maybe the Katana isn't the best choice for a first bike and partly because my priorities for the bike are changing...I'm thinking more commute now than anything else, so the smaller bike is seeming to make more sense. 60mpg+ and that neon green Ninja paintjob are really making it an attractive idea.

I haven't made up my mind on the 250 and have no plan to sell the Katana, but what I'm really after is the best way to learn so I can be as safe as I can while I get my experience up. The Kat is a great bike and I do enjoy it, but I just wonder if the 250 is a better fit at this stage of my skill level.

GQ* gave me some great comments on his 250 and I'd like to thank him for that, it is helping me make a better decision.

well...I had an uncle that raced moto back in the 70's and I can remember standing there in aw looking at all his trophies and pics and listening to his stories; other than him, no one else in my fam rode. my parents used to tell me sh*t like ''ladies don't ride motorcycles'', ''you're gonna get yourself killed'' ect...

like one of the folks posted earlier, I used to look for the people on bikes when we'd be ridding in the car and dreaming of the day I could get one for myself.

then I met a boy and the story gets ugly. for 8 years I begged him to teach me to ride or at least let me get a bike so I could learn on my own. he was an @$$; we broke up right at a year ago and im over it. so now I have my verry own lil ninja yaaaayyyy!!!!

I've only been ridding for a month now but I've already put over 1500 miles on her! its truly the best feeling in the world when im out on the bike

well ever since I can remember my father had an old Triumph Scrambler. He gave me and my little brother a pair of Italjet M5's (50cc) couldn't even tell you how old we were.. I know I couldn't stop without pops being there to catch the bike cause neither of us could even touch.

When I was old enough to touch the ground on his Triumphs and Hardly I began to sneak them out of the house. around 12 I got caught didn't turn out too well for me.

At 15 he gave me the scrambler.. I rode that for a while till I trashed it thinking I was Marlon Brando.. I picked up a CB750 after that my dad took me to the DMV and signed me up for MSF. The rest is history.

I started out when I was about 12. I had a 2 hp pull-start edger motor powered mini-bike. No suspension. Tecumseh was name I remember on the side of the engine. Anyway, I rode trails of Alief before Royale Oaks eventually took them over. It was a private airport. Then I borrowed my friemds XR75 honda and rode that for a while. I had friends in Highschool that had sportbikes, too and I ALWAYS wanted one and my parents of course said NO.
I waited until I was 33 and married to have my own. THAT was convincing PB125-X2 to have mine and now she has her own.

I started riding around the neighborhood like everyone else as a kid and then when I got a little older I was racing mountain bikes all over texas and a few other states. Got really competitive and was pretty serious. Then I started partying too much and hanging with the wrong crowd. A real good friend of mine bought a triumph, it was a 600 and I made the mistake of riding it one day. That was it for me I was hooked. The wife always said no so I held off from getting one. Then after about two more years I just didn't give a anymore I had to have one so I bought it and the old lady flipped out. After having it about a year she got a little tipsy one day and sid she wanted to go around the block a few times. LOL that was it she was hooked, she rides with me at least two times a week now. Her favorite thing to do is ride on one wheel.

Katanas are expensive bikes to drop!! too much plastic IMO

Long time ago... in a town far away...

I got my first Honda in 1972, a blue and white CL 100.. put about 25,000 miles in 2.5 years on it and never left the city. Own several dirt bike...Elsinor Hondas to the first generation YZ Yami's . Bought an 883 Sportster in a box and rebuilt it... sold it pretty quick. Went without a bike for about 20 years and now own a 02 meanie. Both my older sons own or owned Ninja's and my daughter owned a SV650. I have put 11,000 mile on the meanie in 11 mths. I can't think of not owning one now.

You hear so many ppl pose that question of 'what made u start riding or want to get a bike'?!

I never know how to answer....
Maybe i had a ken barbie with a MC, maybe i saw one while i was still in the car seat looking out the window..

I never had a bf with one, no man/woman ever had one in my family, no friend ever had one...

Long story short, i'm good with money...I was 19...went and took MSF (to learn gears, clutch, brakes etc...i had never even driven a standard anything, much less a MC... learned the gears and everything, found my dream bike shortly after..and started riding! Streets for about a year....then got bit by the track bug... (still determined to have some street riding tho :-p)...im stubborn like that..
