  1. G'day,

    I bought my first bike a month or so ago and have racked up 2500km's.

    I've got a green 09 Ninja 250R and love it, although I already want a 600cc.

    I'll be coming along to a Thursday ride soon so thought I'd post and say hello.


  2. 2500kms in one month :shock:

    Nicely done. I love the look of the new ninja (especially in kawasaki green).
    Post up some pictures!

    I know what you mean with wanting a 600cc. 250's feel a little power-anemic at times. But rules are rules...
  3. Yeah, I've ridden it a lot :)

    Work and back is 75km round trip, then night time rides... long weekend rides... Everywhere.

    I'll get some pics happening soon. I do have a few, but they've got me sitting on the damn thing so it ruins it!

    As far as gear goes, i grabbed a shoei helmet, dainese leather jacket with spine protector, dainese gloves + alpine star boots. Just missing some pants as I couldnt get any draggin/hornee jeans to fit on the day.

    I'll get them sorted it out shortly.

    I may have had one minor incident the day I got it... had a little lay down on the rode going very very slow. tiniest scratch on it. since then been great.

    Had the odd typical learner scare, locked the back wheel around a roundabout, went wide in to a couple corners. All of that was in the first week or two.

    Getting ready to sell my car :)
  4. You're not from around Bulleen area are you? Saw a green learner Ninja couple days ago at Bulleen rd heading to freeway...
  5. Nah not Bulleen. I do take the eastern freeway to work everyday, but get on at Alexandra Pde.

    I'm out in Moonee Ponds/Essendon.
  6. Hi evader. Welcome to NR.
  7. How do you find the bike to ride?

    I've been thinking about buying one
