Welcome to the forum, with your need for speed I would consider starting with a Ninja 500 so you don't out grow it quite so fast. The 250 is a great starter bike but you will out grow it very quick! 8)
I agree, the 250R will grow small really quick. Go for the 500 like my friend and I did. No bike experience prior to buying it for me and I absolutely love it. In fact, I went out to a closed down air force base and got it up to 110 mph a few times on the runways. Would have gone even faster had the wind not been blowing. That's another thing I've read about the 250R, the wind just blows it around because it is so light.bikeaholic said:welcome jetedawg glad your thinking first before you buy-the 250 is a sweet little bike-but take the saftey course first and you'll see the 250 will become small very fast.
i would shoot for something a tad bit larger,just make sure its a kawi :lol: i can't rag ya drivin a tibby-my girlfriend has a 02 with cold air intake and exhaust and it is fun to drive but

RocketBoyWonder said:Yeah you might wnat a 500 cause I started out on a 250 and yeah I must say I wish I would have started out on a 636 lol. I've had the 250 for almost a year now and I've been wanting more power for let ssay...7 months now.

I never even look at the dates, so when one of these older threads gets revived, it takes me a while to catch on.
Very true.vulcan500rider said:What makes a speed racer think that going from a car to a motorcycle will slow him down and make him get fewer tickets? No wonder we haven't heard from the guy in 3 years.
