Hi everyone!!!

A friend of mine told me about this site so I figured I would give it a shot. I'm really interested in learning how to ride, so I figured I would get on here and find out some information on a good starter bike?

Welcome!

You might want to talk to skmart2. She went through the same process, and bought a Ninja 250. Learned on it and now has moved to a bigger bike. Send her a PM just in case she doesn't read this thread.

It looks like your "pitbulls 4 sale" thread you started this morning has been deleted. If you're actually here to talk/learn about riding then Welcome to MH
