Bought my Ninjette from Marylin & Ninjette Shadow on 8-19-06. Thanks!!!

Been riding since 1980, bike-licensed since '84 ... owned several over the years:
*'74 XR75 (too big for it, beat it badly)
*'77 KTM/Penton 400 (yikes, 15 with a big-bore two-stroke, not too big for that one...)
*'76 Can Am 175 Qualifier (first bike with street tag, very docile, like a llama off-road...)
*'85 KTM 350 MXC (first new bike, also tagged/insured, fast & furious)
*'83 Kawa KZ-1000J (fun and fast)
*'87 HD XLH-1100 (30th anniv bike, too beautiful... I bought her new, and put 27,000 miles on in 5 years)
*'73 HD XLH-1000 (rigid frame, apes, 4" over forks, 5gl bob tanks... cool to look at, but a freakin' scary deathtrap. Only bike I've owned that I wasn't sad to see go...)

And 12 years later, I picked up the 250F. After a couple months and a couple thousand miles, I've upgraded with:

Rotella T Synthetic oil
2 extra brake/tail lamps & LED stop strip
Pro-Grip gels & grip heaters
Metzeler Lasertec tyres
Race Tech cartridge emulators
Sonic 0.90 fork springs, 10w oil
ZX6 air shock
Galfer braided s/s brake lines, EBC pads

Future plans include replacing the upper fairing, painting it Lime Green, and putting it on a Slim-Fast diet as funds allow.
