Hey guys, Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 24, I work as a structural drafter & study engineering part time. I recently got into riding after spending far too much money on my previous cars [Subaru RS Liberty & 2005 WRX STi]. Thrill factor is definately there, even more so with a bike though! After selling my STi in March, I ended up buying a 2012 Ninja 250 in black, mint condition with 1500kms on it. Everything was tight, couldn't fault it (except for ergonomics). I have travelled about 4000kms in the past couple of months and decided to upgrade/trade in for a Ducati Monster 659. Beautiful bike but definately a bit different to adjust to handling wise, the extra power is amazing and it feels so well grounded on the highway with the additional weight. I also went and did an advanced riding course a little while ago, this has changed my riding style fundamentally (namely bad habits I picked up from teaching myself). Cheers, Kieran.
