    I’m Joe from the Cincinnati area, I’m an 18 yr old freshman in college and planning on getting my first bike as soon as I get the funds (probably March or April). Right now I’m looking at a bunch of ninja 250rs between $1300-2000. I bought a helmet already and am shopping around for the rest of my gear after I see what I get for Christmas. Good job on the site!

    I know a lot of people that started on Ninja 250s. They seem to be a good and popular beginner bike. I even know some guys that still ride them because small displacement bikes are very economical and they love the maneuverability of a small bike. I don’t know anyone that does regular freeway riding though. After seeing the way people drive in my car and reading everyones horror stories I know I’ll be avoiding the interstate even with a large displacement bike capable of keeping up with traffic.

    Hello! I commute every day and I get about 20 mpg in my Escape and 65+mpg would be godsend on my wallet! That alone is one of the main reasons why I want to get into street riding. I spend about $40 per week on gas, minimum. I just wonder how much insurance is gonna cost me…

    Insurance should be very inexpensive for a 250cc bike. I’m not sure if they consider fairings on a bike that small, but insurance on unfaired bikes is usually cheaper [ie. any sport bike is going to cost more because there is a lot of delicate expensive plastic bits to replace..] Somewhere on this site I think Ben said it cost him $300 to replace on small piece out of 18 or so on his Kaw when he broke it in an accident. I think this is also a way to charge sport bike riding squids more for insurance when they have clean driving records.
