I've only been on one forum before so please bear with me. Great to be here among riders from everywhere it seems. I'm from New Jersey about 20 mi. due east of NYC. A long time away from riding with an inauspicious beginning when I was attending tech school at Chanute AFB in Rantoul, IL 35 years ago. Started with a Yamaha TX-500 but have some time with a Norton 850 Commando that my roomate at school had purchased at the same time. I have way too many perhaps boring stories from that time period (22 yo.). The bug never left me, though. Just recently, I have commited myself to a purchase of a 2011 Honda CBR250R in Black, non- ABS on order from Sport Honda in Metuchen, NJ. I have word just yesterday that 12 assorted models are due in about a week. The butterflies are starting even though this is not a new experience. I originally went in to look at a 2010 Triumph Bonneville but after sitting on it compared to the CBR, decided the 250 was a much better fit. What a nicely put together machine! I was smitten within seconds. So now it is just a waiting game until I get that call from my salesman. This site has been an asset to me while snooping around and reading all sorts of good stuff located here. I am now official... You all seem to be good people, so thanks for having me!
