Hello. Today I bought my first bike with gears! It is a 2011 CBr250, red, non-abs. I've been riding a Honda Ruckus for 4 years up until now (first and only bike until now). The original owner of the CBR bought it at the end of last season so I still have warranty until the end of June. Anyway, I think I got a pretty sweet deal. This was the bike I wanted(although I prefer 2012 black) and there were slim pickings in these parts for bikes in general. I haven't ridden my bike yet. I plan to go out and get a proper jacket first. Once I'm geared up I'll start slow and find a parking lot, I guess. I've also started watching youtube videos and have found some very important things I didn't know. The most interesting for me was the science behind counter-steering. I look forward to getting to know my bike and having some fun on it.
