New to Motohouston, New to bikes..

Hello everyone,
The motorcycle fever is kicking in and developing an urge to purchase a bike. Currently im interested in (bet you heard this before) a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250R starter bike. With this being said im interested in anything new or used, been searching the internet rigorously for pre-owned but no luck, and I hear that the "new" 250R's are skyrocketing in price due to none available in stock. Any resources from the other forum members would be great! Also please post any useful information in regards to a first time bike owner, please.

Thank you!

Welome to MH.....
1st i would take the MSF course and get your liscense.
Start searching craigslist and these forums
I found a few on CL for sale, less than 500 miles on them for a descent price.
The new 250 is a hot item right now.
What side of town are you in?
