New member returning to the Ninja 250

Hello,

Longtime lurker, new member. Thanks for this community and resource.

About me, FWIW:

I'm not new to motorcycles or the Ninja 250. I owned a '99 for about ten years, and for four of those years I commuted full-time on it whenever there wasn't snow on the ground.

I didn't start with the EX250. After many years of classic Hondas I modernized with a Bandit 1200, the first bike I owned on which I didn't need to fix anything or undo a previous owner's butchery or chase after deferred maintenance. Luxury! But I quickly decided I wanted to do better than 35mpg and didn't need to go 100mph on freeway interchanges.

Enter The Ninja. With Gen Mar risers, cheap hippo hands, an electric vest, and an Aerostich suit it served me very, very well. I kept it longer and put more miles on it than any of my previous bikes.

But I sold it a couple of years ago when circumstances changed. Now I'm commuting again and I'm looking to get back into the game (and the carpool lane) with another 250.

When I get one I'll have questions that I haven't seen answered here or at ninja250.org, but for now I want to be able to see the photos of the cool stuff you're doing to your bikes.

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks

Thanks all. Y'all're making me feel welcome and stuff.

I'll post pics of my new one when I get it, but until then here's my old one. Should never have sold it.
