My Ninja 250R by chi-u My Ninja 250R by chi-u
My new bike, the Kawasaki Ninja 250R :) This is my second bike.

Got it a few days ago and got my new riding gear yesterday. I got SP2 Alpinestars gloves, Berik jacket, white Alpinestars boots, Shark helmet and Sartso Killer jeans.

I have a Yoshimura SS slip on exhaust and an R&G Fender Eliminator/Tail Tidy installed.

I took it for a good fast ride up the Old Pacific Highway here in Australia [link] [link] (best rider territory in Sydney) yesterday. Was so fun, I think those are my plans for the next million weekends! : D

would you be able to help a newbie out? I wanna get either a 125 or a 250cc but with a 250cc I fear that it may be too much for me because I am 5 ft 9 and only weight 75kg but I commute on roads that go 100km/h and my old 50cc scooter just doesnt cut it...

Trust me, a 250 wold be perfect :) I'm actually about your height and weight too and it was perfect for me. I suggest you go and sit on a few in bike shops and see how you feel. 250s are powerful, but not powerful enough to throe you like 600 or 1000 would as a newbie. If you find you can touch the ground with both feet (doesn't have to be flat on the floor) on a 250 you wilp be fine on it :)

Getting mine today! Cept its red. You really got the line of the bike straight, almost makes it look like it got cropped at the middle. Gorgeous bike though :)

Yeah I am pretty excited, except I am not good at downshifting I have discovered, and I have killed it more than once when coming to a complete stop and trying to get going again :X I got pretty comfortable pretty fast though, was able to drive it to work today after my 1 day of practice.

I meant it looks cropped because the bike has such a straight line across it and you have it perfectly level so it almost looks like the top of the bike was dragged down over the bottom. I know it wasn't, but at first glace it kind of looks that way :P

Awesome! Good for you ^^ You will get better :3
Ohh I see XD I actually took the photo on a sloped driveway, and if I can remember correctly I rotated it a bit :confused:

I am enjoying it quite thoroughly so far. However you took the pic, you sure did get that line straight :) My only issue is the bike seems like it starts running pretty rough towards <10mph in first. I do not know if this is normal, or I need to engage the clutch at this point, or if I may have an issue with my bikes first gear...

Awesome :)
Have you ever driven a manual car? If so you will know that every manual vehicle needs to be shifted to second gear almost immediately after taking off. I normally shift around 8-9rpm so you should be fine :) if it persists worrying you, maybe at your 1000km service ask the mechanic to take a look ^_^

Yeah I am quick about shifting, and usually do it just after 5000rpm. When I am slowing down though I will shift back into first once my speed drops below 10mph, and as I creep towards my stop it seems to grumble. The person who owned it did something to the exhaust to make it sound a bit louder though so it could be just due to that too.
