Smile Hello from Northern VA

Hi everyone, new rider here and a new 2007 Ninja 250 owner! I've had my 3 wheel license for a few years and borrow family member's Rykers time to time. But my bucket list said to get a motorcycle license so I took the MSF mid-August to finish the job! I didn't really think I would buy a bike at the time, but it was a good time!

Test rode a Ninja 650, sat on a few cruisers, but kept looking at this one bike on CL. Some don't like the retro look but it actually draws me to it! It actually almost escaped me to another buyer but he skipped out. The Seller contacted me again and well, here we are!

Looking forward to improving my skills and learning to do what work I can on my own!

Thanks to all the posters I have read so far that have shared their knowledge and experience!
