KidRock171 Saweet. The ninja is basically the ony choice in the 250 category but Honda just released the cbr250 and I took a look at it. But the only thing Honda has over Kawasaki is the fuel injection. Which isn't enough to sway me. I'm super excited about getting to ride finally. After I get the knack of it I hope to graduate to an R6

No complaints love the ride it is fun. Lightweight handles very good in the turns and around parking lots. Drag rear break and can make turns a little tighter.
Gets 72 MPG. Depends on if you stay off the throttle.
I have ridden it over on long rides with no stops and it cooks along comfortably.
Ridding position does not stress the wrist.
If short legged can easy touch ground (5'8.5" 166 lbs 32 length and decent reach) I fit perfect on the bike. The foot controls are perfect postion.

Ok, I guess there is a complaint. Winds, get above 20-25 then you get blown around every where. You get use to it.
Also it is Carb not fuel Injected. But Dyno jet and that does not matter much.

Best of luck and look forwar to seeing a pic when you get a bike. They are fun no matter what you get. Every day you ride a smile comes happens.

I hunt once a year, fish and camp as much as I can, hike every weekend if possible, Shooting tactical and practical (Shotgun, Rifle, pistols), sky diving (wife silly idea and got me hooked), scuba diving (in process of getting certified), love kayaking (Cobra swift water), Mt biking (1997 Treck 950 hard tail wit front suspension)

currently restoring a 1974 Honda XL100.

Bottom line most outdoor activities. Especialy since I live in a great area to play. Las Vegas Nevada. We have AZ, CA, UT, CO all near by. That gives me lakes, Ocean, Moutains, plenty of options for a wide range of play.

very fun. I used to collect coins, old antique lighters, model and toy cars, and a few other things but I sold/got rid of alot of things, partially thanks to the Jeep addiction and partly thanks to I got so busy with "life"

shell Let's see...there's this: my guns (S&W M&P 9mm, Kel-Tec P3AT, and my everyday carry Kahr PM9) oh, and the hubby's 1911 which I take as mine every time we go to the gun range. I guess that would be my favorite next to my Kahr.

Then there's my instruments (brand new Taylor acoustic, my Fender Strat, flute, clarinet, piccolo and not pictured alto sax-in the shop, tenor sax, trumpet and my other acoustic guitar.

And also my mountain bike--a Trek Skye w/ disc brakes. Been too busy to ride lately, but that changes in 1 week when school's out for the summer.

PTWarrior66 Hockey, eat, sleep, attempt to not get arrested, typical 18 year old stuff.

Want to pick up hunting this year though, going to study to be a doctor so cutting up a deer will be good for being around blood and what not and fun sport.

rics1997 I like to camp even though I don't get out much lately. I love nature and history, have a degree in biology and math. Collect old books and pipes.

dfry Hunting, shooting, reloading, photography, and camping are my passions. On really good days, I can combine them all. I also enjoy fishing, building custom fishing rods, and fly-tying. Just don't get to do them much anymore. On a daily basis, I enjoy playing with my two golden retrievers and playing my harmonicas.

LOL, think Jeeps are addicting and money pits? I work with horses so I can afford to play with horses, it's a sick twisted cycle Tennessee Walking Horses...so it's more like 2 hp with really awesome shocks, they were bred for land owners to ride all day over their farms/plantations and still be super smooth The orginal 4x4!

nick50471 My father hooked me on shooting at a very young age. In the Navy I honed my pistol shooting skills. After the Navy my hobby turned into a business. I opened a gun shop about eleven years ago. Two years ago I took on a partner and we opened a new shop Midwest Firearm & Taxidermy. I haven't stopped shooting.
