No, I would not suggest those for a new rider. If your going for the sport bike look/feel then I would suggest these 1. 2008 - recent Kawasaki Ninja250 http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/9214/kawasakininja250r2008st.th.jpg 2. 2006-recent Hyosung 250gt http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/8963/gt250r01.th....

Lot's of beautiful bikes you fellow female riders have. I brought home my most recent ride Valentines day 2009. I really love her and she is more comfortable to ride than you would think. I think I am going to hold onto her for a long time to come. She is a 1999 Yamaha YZF R6 http://img41.imageshack...

This dealer is quite a distance away, besides they don't deliver. I have no way of towing a trailer. Paying a shipping company to do it is more $ and I rather keep the price down (cheapest was like 350.00 to ship :? ) I wouldn't mind the van idea but I don't think they come with ramps and do they ev...

Best transport & how do you secure a bike when transport

Okay, well I have set the day to pick up my bike (VALENTINES DAY :P ) but I am getting nervous on how to do it. My husband and I are planning on renting a box truck or something of the like and borrowing those ratchet type straps to secure it. I was wondering if anyone has any tips and advice on a b...

Excellent choice. I was actually looking into those at one time for my first bike too :laughing: I love the look and the versatility of them. Feel your pain on the wait, it will just make the big day that much sweeter.

Not sure. If I was going to buy new I always figured I would get the Kawi 650r because it didn't have an aggressive seat position and it's more powerful than the 250 but not so powerful as a supersport. The 650r seemed (that I could find) the only one in its class, but this new yamaha also has uprig...

Yahama has a new advanced beginner model coming for 2009

Looks like Yamaha is finally adding a mid weight sportbike FZ6R http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/products/modelimagelib/619/1/1/0/image.aspx It looks pretty good and I like the color schemes. It is heavier though than the Kawasaki 650R and a bit more pricey. It is nice to have a bit more selection ...

Well I called the guy up so we could arrange a time where we could both look over each others bike. Well, it first took him a while to figure out which caller/responder I was (apparently I was not the only one who saw this as a great oppurtunity) I had to jog his memory with "I'm the 2007 silver 250...

Although I like my Ninja250 just fine and it basically does it all, I just am not experiencing any excitement with it. So I have been looking at middle of the road bikes to move up to and just waiting around for a good deal. Well, I might have found it. I have found a person who wants to get rid of ...
