    the two fiddeh is the best bike to learn on. you'll learn riding skills (how to go fast) a lot quicker than you would on a bigger bike. i say, pick up a used two fiddeh....learn on it and ride the hell out of it for one season. those bikes really hold their value and there's a pretty high demand for them. so after one season, you cansell it for the same price you bought it for, and move up to a bigger bike. you'll be a much better rider :cool:

    Go with the 250, I have a 01' 250 and its perfect. I ride about 70 miles a day to work with it and its mostly interstates. When you need a little speed its there for you. I cruise around 90 and it handles that fine. New 250's will run you around 3000 and come with a 1 year warranty and Kawasaki will offer you another 3 years for 700 bucks, so you get plenty of worry free riding time

    Have you all missed how tall and fat he is??? :fawk: Just kidding! The 250 is probably a bit too small for you. Heck I'm only 5'5" 130lbs and it's way too light for me. Look at the Ninja 500R too to see if it fits you better. The 250 is one great bike to learn on.
