As someone who was hellbent on getting a 600+ SS bike before I even got my permit, I am EXTREMELY happy that I ended up finding such a great deal on a used Ninja 250. Even after taking the MSF class, I can honestly say I don't remember hearing or reading ANYTHING that discouraged new riders from buying a SS bike right out of the class. That, imo, is something that needs to be stressed EXPLICITLY. I have already been in a handful of situation were my horribly inexperienced input would have gotten me seriosly injured or killed on a SS bike.

Having quickly learned to put my ego aside while riding has been the biggest help for me, hands down.
