Hi! I’m not too new, been round for a while, haven’t posted till today, only sort of look to get the advice from the threads which is at times is totally invaluable thanks! Been riding about 2 and half years, and, at last, most of the time I even look like I have half a clue now! I was blessed with no actual talent at all, not even a small bit, I discovered on my learners permit, which I did managed to get just barley, got a bike three months later, and would take me an hour of stressing to even get round the block once to start with! Now I have a full license, and have done nearly 9000 ks so I can say I’m finally getting the hang of it, and might actually fool some people, that I can ride! I ride a 250 ninja 2012, yes a red one, a fantastic girl’s bike, and I can actually stop without jumping off the seat to get the foot down! Bonus was that I have always been totally in love with the ninjas since the 80’s, so this is also my dream bike, until I maybe one day I’ll get a bigger one, would have got a ZX6R but they stopped making the straight ZX6R’s last year, Shattered! Can only get the 636’s now and there too aggressive feel like I should have floties and start swimming! So might have to be a ZX10R, because they are totally hot looking bikes, but for now I’ll stick with my favorite, and its fast enough for now, surprised me how well it took a 900ks round trip on the Hume, in well over 30+ temps, never missed a beat!
