|I started riding my dad's 70's Honda. It was a hard to steer bugger. I bought it off of him and dumped it twice. Once really hard.
Then I bought an 86 Honda Rebel 250. It was a great little bike. Quick steering, I would scrape the pegs without even trying. (Though that was probably more due to my not accelerating enough in turns..)
But the Ninja! I'm in love with this thing. The only times it's frustrated me is because I screwed up (like running out of gas last week!). Quick steering, quick acceleration... nothing NOT to like!
I've put over 6000 miles on it and can't wait to add at least 100,000 more.
It took me from Indianapolis to Boston and back. Even after I upgrade to a touring bike, I think I'm going to keep the Ninjette with me.
