We should go riding. I'd like to get more Ninja 250 riders out there... I'm a member @ Ninja250.com, but haven't found but one other rider in Northwest houston... You guys up for some riding?!??!

Viva la 250. I rode with some guys on 1000cc's this last weekend and had a blast, they were courteous and safe, but i kept up decently....

Ninja 250s get more stable in higher speed... faster, more effort to turn... I don't know what that could be... Wind gusts are bad @ under 60 mph for me, being 6-3.

Hope to ride with you guys soon!
'i have a 500 it would be great for me to tag along

I think your psi was way too low. I kept my ninja at 32/36 psi front/rear. I never had any problems with my ninja on freeways.

+1 to that, but a couple weeks ago I rode in a cross wind so bad, i swear i was leaning into it as what I thought was perfectly, then my back tire slid sideways with the wind, it was cold and the tire was surely still very cold, but a funny feeling nonetheless.

also gripping handlebars too tight can cause this... read twist of the wrist 2.... you should be relaxed, otherwise road imperfections can cause this.
