Re: Added another Ninja to the flock

Hopefully it's not too hard..Ill be doing it m...

Re: women's jackets

I have the Icon womens Hooligan mesh jacket in black. Its a tightly woven mesh material with silver glittery icon logo on the front and large glittery stars down the sleeves. Its great for warm weather and slightly cooler weather, but Im always cold so Id have to wear a sweatshirt underneath to stay...

Re: newbie needs help with first bike choice.

I started riding a last April and I probably fought with myself for a year or better on which bike to get. My boyfriend and all his friends ride sportbikes, so naturally I wanted one too. EVERYONE in his "pack" or whatever told me to not buy a 250 because I will want to sell it and get something bi...

Re: Overcoming fear after a crash?

Last year was my first official year with a bike. I really wanted to start out on a 250, since id never ridden before, even dirtbikes or anything similar. I dont know what made me do this, but I went out and bought a brand new 250 Ninja. Within 3 days we (my boyfriend and I) were riding everywhere....

Thanks a bunch guys! I'm going to try to maybe lean down a bit more and relax my arms- hopefully the wind won't pick on me as much then :oops: I don't have a whole lot of experience riding, so i normally ride where my boyfriend rides, which happen to be busy roads. So when there is wind, a car behin...

Windy Days

Ive had my bike since april and before that i had absolutely no experience on a bike whatsoever. I bought a 2009 ninja 250 as my first bike. My friends tease me because I cannot ride on windy days, and if i do i go about 45. I dont know if it is just me, but to me when a gust of wind comes at me fro...

I personally love my "beginner" bike. I bought a 2009 ninja 250r, it still has get up, its not a pusy bike like some people think. I have already wrecked because I was, believe it or not, going too fast for my experience level. But i got right back on it the day it came out of the shop and since hav...

Well I went out and bought my first bike last week. I have had so much fun on it in just a few days time! I did encounter my first real hate for twisties though. Went down hard on Saturday. My brand new 250 ninja isn't so pretty anymore :frusty: Any pointers on twisties from the ladies? (for after ...

WELL.... I think that that was a little harsh. I said my boyfriend insisted that I wanted to start out on a 600. NOT that he was forcing me. I am a very independent woman and No, he does not control anything in my life. I do what I want to, when I want to, his approval is not needed. I just looked ...

My boyfriend has been riding for years and incessantly insists that I start out on a 600. Get a better boyfriend. Seriously. What right does he have to insist on what you ride? Does he like to control everything else in your life, too? Your car? Your clothes? Is he of the disposition that it's his ...

I started on my '08 Ninja 250. I'm only 5'1" but we raised the handlebars 1" and lowered the back 2" I can almost flat foot it now!! How long have you had your 250? I want one to learn on, I really like the 2008's new body style, but everyone tells me to start bigger because I will get bored fast. ...

New rider

Just curious, I am a new rider ( the only experience I have is laps in a parking lot) and I REALLY want to get out there. I don't really like the idea of starting on a cruiser, I think a sportbike fits my personality better. My boyfriend has been riding for years and incessantly insists that I star...
