I’ve been thinking about getting a motorcycle, reading as much as I can, notably this site. When the time comes that I have money to buy a bike, I’m entirely unsure what to get. It seemed to me that a Ninja 250 would be good, but my mom’s boyfriend thinks otherwise. He’s an engineer by trade and seems to think that I should get something with more power. He himself rides a Hayabusa, which is way in the other direction as far as power goes. So while I’ve figured on a Ninja 250, he thinks otherwise, and I do trust him.
Any advice on the situation would be very much appreciated.

If he thinks you should start on a hayabusa, you should not trust him anymore.
I’m riding an sv650s as my first bike. It’s recommended a lot as a first time more powerful bike. I’d have to agree with some caveats. But, you should probably ask him his reasons for why going with a 250cc bike is a bad idea. I’m guessing he’s probably thinking you’ll outgrow it…
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…May 31, 2008 at 3:58 am #6835ImperatorParticipant
The outgrowing factor is probably big on the list of reasons not to get one. And I’m sure he doesn’t think I should start on a Hayabusa.
