Ok Guys – As a newbie, I really need your help here!! I KNOW the rules about a newbie buying a “new” bike and I KNOW I will dump it and it’s stupid.
I’m heeding all the advice about starting small and talked myself out of a 600 and into a 250.
I found a deal on a NEW 2005 Kawasaki ZZ-R250 (which is actually pretty good-looking for a 250) on sale for $5699 from $6299, probably inventory clear-out.
Looking through the “used” ads it seems like for a few hundred dollars more I can get new and not have to worry about any problems that could come with used. This way I can keep it for awhile and even have it as a 2nd bike for my husband and I to share when we’re ready for a 600. (I probably also won’t be pressuring myself so much to move to a 600 before I’m ready, like I might with an older bike that starts to have problems, etc.)
Any thoughts? Am I being stupid?
