I’m Leaning Towards The Kawasaki Ninja 250R

February 18, 2008

So, if I get a bike, I am starting to lean towards the Ninja 250R as a starter bike.  The Blast is not as nice looking to me, and the price for the Ninja is a little cheaper.  I’ll probably be shopping for a 2005 or 2006 model.

Contrary to what someone said, in the long run, it is more efficient to ride a motorcycle then drive a car.  Especially considering the current costs of fuel. 

I’m Thinking Of Getting A Motorcycle

February 11, 2008

I have been contemplating getting a motorcycle this year.  Currently I drive a 2001 Hyundai Accent that has some issues.  My drive is only 10 miles round trip, so I could probably save some money by riding a motorcycle on nice days.

I have no experience on motorcyles, so I will of course take a safety training class to begin with.  I look forward to researching a good beginner motorcycle.  I don’t want anything too powerful, but I would like to be able to take my wife for a ride once in a while.

I’ve read the Buell Blast is a good starter ride.

Any thoughts?
