Hey guys, my girl decided that motorcycling isn't for her and wants to sell her bike. Its a 97 w/ only 4000 miles. In 99% mint condition minus a small crack on the right side where the people we bought it from had laid it over in the grass. Has fresh oil change and new spark plugs..... She is tryin to get 1400 for it.

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.

Good price for a nice looking bike. Sorry your girl gave up on riding. Mine is on/off....
Mine too. As a matter of fact she rocks a 97 600R that looks like this 250's big brother. Sporadic at best. And I am a firm believer in letting her decide on her own...honestly I get so paranoid when she rides with me.

Yeah, now my GF wants me to pick up a cruiser for riding 2-up. I won't ride with her on the back of my 10 anymore...one time was enough of that nonsense! :badteeth:

Yeah I will probably be picking up an '02 VTX 1800. It is HUGE and like riding a water buffalo. But I must admit it is very comfortable and good for 2-up...torque for days. Gotta wait till after the house we bid on is officially ours...then I will prolly pick her up. I am guessing the 600R will be sold soon-after. GL with the sale!
