hi guys. the title explains it all. i went and grabbed a CBR250RR 1990 model bike for $3450 and then got my L's a week later. i only needed to replace the mirrors and blinkers but they were $130 all up so it wasnt too bad. and apart from that the bike is in pretty damn good nick for something 17 yrs old. ive been riding for about 3 weeks and im keeping the corners slow. round abouts are a bit tricky at the moment. so is remembering to turn off my indicators. woopsies! but the bike is an absolute screamer ... ive just slowly started reaching the powerband (10k+ revs). not good though, im still a noobie and shouldnt be reaching the capabilities of a 45 pony-power bike in 50km/h zones. oops! if anyone has any tips about cbr250's or about dodging those evil cagers your help will be appreciated. so far i havent tried any lane skipping or any of that junk, ive just been taking it easy, riding it the same way i drive my car. i sit in the middle of the lane and keep my position behind or between cars at red lights. i always wear my full-face helmet, leathers, jeans and gloves, but i may need an alternative to jeans in the hot weather, they drive me crazy! and ... if anyone has any cool little tips to keep me alive just a little longer your help is appreciated. as i said, any help is good help cheers!!
