Hello everyone. My name is Patrick and i always found myself clicking on links for this forum and it has some very useful information so i decided to join! I don't have my bike just yet but i plan on getting the 2011 Ninja 250r (black) very soon! But not soon enough . I have read (from this forum!) that it is a really good beginner bike. And it just looks really nice as well. As soon as i saw it i had to get it. But anyhow. Glad to be a new member!
