Well, I got really lucky in getting my CBR250r. Went out to a dealer to find one last saturday (5/25) and found out they were getting two (one of each color) in on Wednesday - The black one was accounted for, and the other had just recently had the person waiting cancel their deposit. So I slapped a down payment on it and got to pick her up this past friday. So far I have gotten 150 miles on it and am loving it. This is my first bike ever and my previous riding experience has only been the MSF learning course (which in my state is mandated to get your motorcycle endorsement).
