I bought my bike used with 1000 miles on it in December 2008 in Los Angeles, then moved to Greensboro a month later. I ride 110 miles a day commuting to and from work, so around 26k per year. I ride no matter the weather except for ice. The FAQ and forum on this site have saved me who-knows-how-much money and headache by allowing me to do maintenance and repairs at home instead of taking it to a shop. Hallelujah for Ninja250.org!
