Hey hey! A bit of an unusual first post, but here it goes: My girlfriend and I are getting into motorcycling and we're looking for a bike to suit her (no bike for me yet). There's one slight problem though; she wants it to be green. Kawasaki neon green. As in, NOT the new metallic lime green. Now I'm a very conscientious buyer and generally wouldn't buy something based on it's looks but in this case... I kinda agree. I actually really love the old Kawasaki Green. We've decided that we'd like the Ninja 300, preferably with ABS (this decision, the Ninja 300 w/ ABS, was based on a huge amount of research and chats with bikers from all backgrounds - I'd prefer the 650RL but I think she'd be safer on a 300). My question is, when did Kawasaki stop painting their bikes that fantastic D) neon green? Can I get a Ninja 300 ABS in neon green? Why am I buying a bike based on it's colour?! As a second question: Where can I get the most outrageous, colourful riding outfits possible? I want to burn my girlfriend's image (obvious jokes aside ~_~) into the retinas of every passing motorist so that they can't possibly avoid seeing her. That said, we'd rather not have to wear turtle suits every time we do a 10 minute ride. Cheers! Matt PS. just to reiterate; even if the she wasn't dead-keen on neon green, we'd still be looking primarily at a Ninja 300 - because it seems like a solid all-rounder learning bike. Second to that is the 650RL because of it's impressive ride quality, decent resale value and the fact that it can be a sorta-tourer and a sorta-sportsbike at the same time. She had a look at some Hondas but didn't like any of them (despite the CB300 being rather similar to the Ninja 300).
