Hey guys I introduced myself in the newbie corner a while back but not in the 250 forum. So I figured now that I got pics I would say hello and show you all my new bike. I am just 17 almost 18, and took the MSF class before I started riding. I got my license already after having the permit for 6 mos. I want to eventually take a class like a track day or the California Superbike School too hopefully to improve my skills. I have about 1400 miles on this sucker so far. It's an 06 that I saved up to buy with my own money :) I just bought this Shoei helmet too that I'm pretty stoked on. So tell me what you guys think ! Thanks guys.

John

Excellent choice! I started out on the 250R, it's a great bike and I really miss it. Every time I see one it takes me back to when I first started riding.

Damn it man! They make it in black again, mine was red with purple wheels(PUKE!).

Good luck and be safe out there[8D]

good call on the bike, the color and the gear. you are doing it right, this is great bike to learn on and improve your skills and learn...i wish more young guys would use thier heads like you are. I have a yellow Joe Rocket mesh jacket, size medium that i would be happy to send to you if you want it. Its the "ballistic" and i know the yellow doesnt exactly match your color scheme, but its FREE!!! pm me if you want it and i will send it to you.

good luck and be careful out there.....and remember ATGATT (all the gear all the time)

Nice bike. Sent you a PM. :D

You didn't by chance have a picture on bikepics.com of you on back of a zx-6r, did you? Your face through the helmet looks like one picture I saw..

Good looking scoot! I bought my 15, soon to be 16, year old son the red '06 250. I've also got an '89 250 that I bought for him to make all the newbie mistakes on. He takes his MFS course this weekend. I figure after about a year on the '06, he'll be bugging the crap out of me to give him my ZR-7S. At least he isn't after my Venture!

Not trying to pick on you dude but it's kind of ironic isn't it that your picture shows you in a tshirt and jeans with no gloves riding a wheelie on your bike? [:M60]
(The smiley has nothing to do with anything. I just thought it was funny.)
