I thought I'd share my wife and I's ride last week.

Wife and I went on a ride through Joshua Tree National Park.

I ride an 06 Ninja ZX6R and she rides a brand new Ninja 250.

oh man Wilson's ate my lunch on it because I had to have one of the very first ones. I paid $4400 after taxes. Don't worry, Clawsen's is only marking them up $500!

That's a fair deal considering the bikes MSRP is $3500 (Just looked it up).

Fantastic pics, and extra nice because I was in Palm Springs with my family that week... and did not get a chance to go to Joshua Tree! :(

Your photos are the next best thing to being there.

Oh no. We put them in the back of the truck and hauled them down there.

On the 250 you would get a better price going down to Visalia to GA motorsports. I got my wife one 3 weeks ago with a seat cowl for 4100 out the door.

Where is the ride to this sunday ANYONE

Wow didn't expect this thread to get raised from the dead!

We love the 250. It's a good bike at a better price, in my opinion. There are lots of reviews of it on the web at this point and they've all been very positive.

Thanks!

I also ride to 08 Kawi 250. Its a great bike to learn on. I have had a lot fun on it so far. For a guy my size, at times it seems to be not enough horsepower. But I am still a new rider and learning how to ride will so I guess it is better for me. Its a great bang for the buck.:dblthumb2:
