I'm Doug. I just got my motorcycle license in a 2-day MSF Basic Rider Course program last weekend. I promptly purchased a 2012 Black CBR250R (non ABS) with 1800 miles for my first bike! I'll try to post some pictures in here later.
I have never ridden motorcycles on the street before, but about 12 years ago I used to ride dirt bikes all the time. I have some experience on trails, pit riding, and even some racing experience. I am extremely excited to get my new bike registered and inspected tomorrow and looking forward to my first ride!
I plan to own this bike for a short time (1-2 years) and hope to upgrade to something bigger afterwards. I'm going to do my best to not upgrade every possible piece of equipment on the bike, but so far that isn't going so well.
I've already ordered the following:
-HotBodies Racing fender eliminator
-K&N Air Filter
-Flush mount front blinkers
-Rear brake fluid reservoir delete
Aside from the above, I may at some point order an exhaust and a rear footpeg delete exhaust hanger.
