Wanna say hi to everyone, been trolling on this forum for a few weeks and reading up. Got my M1 license 2 weeks ago. Placed a deposit on a red 09' 250R and waiting for it to arrive (hoping early November). Salesman said estimate OTD price will be around $4800-$5000. They sold one black 09' 250R on the day I placed a deposit on my bike for $5200. Bike isn't even here and I got all my gear, from head to toe. No leather pants, but kevlar padded jeans.
