New Ninjetter from PA

Hello all.

I bought my fourth motorcycle- first in about 8 years two weekends ago. Its a 2001 EX250 with 5200 miles on the clock. Overall it is in pretty amazing condition and after an inspection I rode it 100 miles home the day I looked at it.

I came to be comfortable with purchasing a ninja from my extensive reading of the ninja 250 riders club wiki. That forum is pretty dead so that lead me here!

There are a couple things I need to do soon to the bike. I am a little nervous but I hope I can get it right!

Enjoy a glamour shot of the ninjette.

Tyler

Nice snag. Would love to grab a cheap cheap pregen someday and cafe it out.

This forum is far from what it used to be sadly, back in the early mid 2010's this place was a lot of fun with a lot of personalities.

Either way there is still so much great info on this forum about all the ninjettes

Forums as a whole are dying. As new generations come up itís starting to be a more discord driven world. This isnít all bad but itís sad because there are so many incredibly knowledgeable people that are either not savvy enough or donít care enough to use a new platform so their expertise is lost.

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of discord, I prefer the more organized aspect of forums but that's just me.

I definitely prefer the form style over random threads. I like to be able to follow a particular thread, which means I need a format which lets me find it.

Welcome! Love the bike.

IMGUR has this cool feature where you can add a lower-case L to the image filename to get a large thumbnail perfect for most forums. I changed RyQnioP.jpg to RyQnioPl.jpg and restored the image tags while leaving the URL tags for the full resolution version.

Thank you for the tip! I did not know that will keep it in mind for future posts.

Also, this site has a resizer button built in to the editor (). Just select the image code, and click that button, and it puts the tags in place. It makes any picture 1000 pixels wide. Here's the full size picture, resized:

Yeah me too! Info is organized and easier to find in forums. Social-media's just bunch of mess.

Stick around and keep the forums alive for us "old" folks, lol.

Still too big for many mobile devices, but not too bad and very useful! Thanks.
