thanks for the advice (: my best friend has a GSx-R600 and it lowered as low as she can get it. I'm learning how to ride on that, and i have a difficult time riding it. thats why i posted this :/ i want something with a little power because i used to ride motocross and had been told that the 250 isnt as great, but thanks for the help
Oh that is good that you rode motocross, gives you a slight advantage over most new riders, and also hinders you a little bit, certain things change, like dirt to road and putting your feet down vs not putting your feet down in times of danger or quick cornering. The 250's still hall balls, they can still do upwards of a 100+ mph with a 180lbs man on them. They are still faster than the average car. And if you want to learn correctly, and not just be a person who rides their bike to bike night and then stands next to it. If you want to be someone who can get in the corners and waste people on bigger bikes, start small. You can buy a used ninja 250 for 1500, riding for a year and sell it for 1500. These bikes retain value like no other.
HONDA shadow vlx or you will drop it before 100 miles and this will have more handling and power than you'll use in the first 2 years easy (unless your douchebag friends coax you into buzzing cars on the highway and running from cops) sportbikes all have high seating this cruiser is one one the low ones. I taught a girl who was 5'1" and she picked this because it was the most confidence building. I road a nighthawk 250 for my first 4 years. Get an ok bike and when you are a great rider then you get a bike that is designed to be piloted by a god. When are you are great rider? when the cost of the tires you have gone through could have bought a brand new bike you might be almost half way there.
