|MAM TrackAddix School of Speed |
I've owned my 2005 Ninja 250 for about 2 years this March. It's been a great bike for commuting and learning to ride on. But I had no idea how much more fun it could be until I was invited to a track day with the motorcycle club at my university. I was the only 250 there, but I had no trouble catching the bigger bikes on the corners. The school was top notch and included a huge amount of riding time. My bike did great with a set of Sport Demon tires. I just kept scraping the pegs when I really dug into the corners.
Being 6' 3" was kind of tough though on such a little bike. My knees didn't appreciate being scrunched up in race position for 30 minutes at a time. And the suspension leaves something to be desired with a 190lb rider. My fastest time was 2:08, but I doubt I'll even get a transponder next time. Just improving my riding skills is enough of a carrot for me.
