Hello from KS

Figured I would introduce myself.

Iím Ben and I just picked up a 2007 250. Itís not my first bike. I have had a multitude of scooters and mopeds, (still have a scoot and 2 mopeds) and have gone through a couple older Honda silver wings. Really like this 250. I have never ridden a bike quite as much fun.

I commute to work everyday on it (so far) and hope to take it on longer rides. Something I could never really do on my other bikes.

Got some luggage for it and will be converting over to LED lights all around, save the headlight.

My only real issue so far is the seat height. Iím 6 foot 1 and this seat is 2 inches lower than my scooter seat. Any way to raise it and the handle bars a bit? Also thinking of taller tires. Any issues with that?

I canít leave well enough alone so Iím looking forward to learning.

Welcome, Ben!

My biggest complaint with the Ninjette was the soft seat, which caused numbdick after half an hour or so.
