So.. what are you all upgrading to next season? I've put on 6000km's on my ninja since May... dropped it once from slipping on dirt+oil in my underground garage, topped out at 170km/h, and even got to ride 2up. In the process I've learned to change my own oil, lube the chain, remember the tire pressure(haha), and even got to use emergency braking and feel what it's like to skid on two wheels in traffic hours. I'm ready to grow out of this thing and move onto something else. I'm 90% certain it's going to be a new SV650sa with ABS. Seems like a reasonable upgrade and at 6'1 it feels pretty comfortable.
This has been a great 1st riding season for me and I've learned a lot from this forum. I would also like to point out that riding on the hottest day of the summer on my black ninja with black leather jacket, black riding pants, black helmet, black gloves and black boots was terrific.
I've noticed there's quite a few 08/09 250 riders that posts here regularly, so let's hear some of your plans! Share some stories!
