Officially fucking spewing. Only reason i even want to upgrade to it cause in order to upgrade i'll have to wait 3 years before an upgrade and even that is out of question considering I've given up on purchasing a bigger bike. Hell i couldn't master a 250 a 600 is out of question. Also another reason is that the new one is dfi so don't have to piss of the neighbours at 4-5 am waiting for the bike to warm up for 5 mins. Hopefully they would consider a trade in price? around 5k if possible.

Aim lower and you wont be spewing as much when they tell you the change over price.

aww sheeeet. Better of selling it my self and then buying the bike outright instead of doing a trade in + cash. Heading there in 20. Will let you know what happens.

Dude you were all worried about the cash to change your brakes and you were going to get rider training, but now you want to throw thousands in to a new bike? :S


My choice would be with the money you save by NOT buying a new bike you can buy 2 sets of sticky tyres, 2 piece leathers, 2 superbike schools, 2 track days, plenty of lunches and accommodation while going on group rides.

you'll have a shit load of fun, meet a lot of great people, and learn to ride like a boss so you're ready for that 600 in a couple of years time.

Medical bills/ specialist's, new furniture, tv, pc, education etc etc wasted a lot of money in a 6th month period.

Don't think i'll be buying the the new one. Even if i do not from bike biz. After all the shit talking done to down play my bike. All their info was bias in order to hype up the new ninja. I understand a sales marketing pitch but telling me bullshit such as my ninja had 19-21 bhp and the new one has 42 is a load of bullshit. I don't know what he was talking about but checking my bike he claimed there was way to much oil in it so price is gone down some more. Any who're, decided not to go ahead with the new ninja, as it is a want and not a need + after getting offered 2k trade in, fund's will be super tight like a virgin. On a positive note got to sit on the 2012 zx14r and it felt so right. Sat on a zx6r to and felt akward due to the riding position. Is this something you grow into or grow's on you? or do you just end up with a shitty back?. Not to sure where to go from here.
Anyways next advance course with clyde is on the 24th, I think he said it was, and will be busy that day so oct 5 is the day i am planning to head there unless plan's change. It's at EC so i am super excited as this would be my first time at a track :)

Only thing that concern's me at this point is, when i asked him what happen's if someone goes up my arse make's me stack it and writes of my bike. He said "I don't know" i dont want to write my bike off lol. Anyone know's what happen's in this situation? only asking as to me. I think its different on the track then it is on the road.

Here's where u go from here,...now u,'ve got 6 mths experience at this piece of piss riding shit...the step up to the 14R from the 250 should present no signifcant problems for a rider of your legendary ability...Just finance it!!

Re: The new 2013 250 ninja

Lol mate. I have no plan's of jumping from 250 to 14r. Was just commenting on the riding position is all.

No insurance fitzy, just bad luck. If someone goes up your bum.....

Not likely to happen at a training day, but then again you where never going to crash either....

The 600 riding position is because it's a sports bike not a sports tourer, if you don't like the riding position you may be better to go with a zr750. Not as sports oriented
