huh, my wife may just be in the same predicament. She has a 250 ninja also. I think for her, she's always wanted to ride since we met 16 years ago. Well, this last spring, she tok the MSF course, crashed, failed, re-took it, passed, and got her M1 motorcycle license. She has since gone on a 45 mile ride, and ridden once to the gym and back on her own. Now she's conquered that aspect of things, but I think a little fear is setting in, and knowing that it will take thousands of miles before she ever becomes a competent rider...I think she's kind of weighing all the stuff. I'll be keeping the 250 ninja regardless since I use it for going to visit her for lunch since it get's great mileage, and she's 21 miles away at work. But anyway...just felt like rambling, and sharing my wife's story. I'm happy now that she can now relate somewhat to what I feel on a bike. Maybe it will make her more understanding now when I ask to go for a ride/on a ride. So, I guess it was all worth it.
