Leon ROCKS!!!

As a newbie, and very proud owner of a second hand Ninja 250 (from eBay no less), I cannot be happier about Leon's accomplishment.

For all Newbies, and not so Newbies, the Ninja 250 is a damn fantastic bike. Sure it has it's share of woes from time to time, and is not the most techy or sexy bike out there, and yes I get smirked at from time to time, but I cannot think of a friendlier, learning tool.

I make some major mistakes riding my Ninja, especially when it comes to the entire "smoothness" thing. If I were on any other bike (say the CBR 600 I so wanted), I'd probably find myself in a heap of hurt. But the brave, little Ninja is a forgiving dance partner, and allows you to make and correct your mistakes. Not to mention the 14000 RPM redline, and the bike's absolute willingness to have the ***** revved out of it.

I wholly recommend the bike to anyone looking to get into sportbiking, or anyone looking to re-enter biking. Sheeeyit, I recommend it to even the crustiest, hard charging, Gixxer fanatic as well. Sure you have power to run away and hide from anyone on a little old 250, but I bet they can't have as much fun tipping in from side to side.

Seriously, I'm 5'10" and 230 lbs, and my little Ninja is basically stock except for some aesthetic details the previous owner made, but maaaan my little betty of a bike puts the biggest smile on my face, and if you give it a chance, it will put one your mugs as well.
