Thumbs up New Guy..

Hey everyone,

I saw the site while browsing the internet. My fiance I really want to get into bikes and riding. Of course we want to go with sportbikes.

After we get our house we plan to pick up some Kawi 250s to start learning on and then move up to the 600cc-750cc range after awhile. I used to be into modding cars, but seeing as I'm an Accountant this is the smarter way to go for speed

Thanks for reading!

John

welcome bro
- good job on the 250 for a starter, common sense and Sportbikes usually don't go hand in hand for new riders. Most of your newbie bretheren think a GSXR1000 with a turbo is a fine starter....
cool your wife wants to ride as well, get her hooked then she can't bitch about you being out riding all the time

Welcome to the forum! Smart way to start off with the 250's Even if you're waiting to get the bikes, you may want to check into some state sponsored riding classes. Some states will provide the bikes for you to use as well as giving the license endorsement, so you may not have to wait till you own your own. Good Luck.

Thanks for the welcomes fellas. I've been reading from A LOT of sources a Kawi 250 is a great starting bike so that has been the choice so far.

I definitely plan to get into the MSF classes we have here in town once we are more serious into looking. The woman is more into the bikes than I am! Its funny because she wasn't too happy about the idea of me getting a car, but she is all over the bike idea! So I chose the smarter path She was asking the other about going straight to GSXR 600s for us to start out on and I told her I don't think that is a good idea because of how it doesn't forgive mistakes that well

Welcome bud, you'll be able to flog the hell out of the 250 and learn some good road craft without getting beyond your ability.
