Yah, budd’s right. There’s deals out there too be had. I’d just add, if you have a motorcycling buddy who’d done some wrench work, bring him/her along to check for non-obvious things. And actually, mechanically, there isn’t much difference between a 98 ninja 250 or a 2007 ninja 250. They were pretty much unchanged until 2008. So just make sure the condition of the bike isn’t fubared.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
