That's one of the models I've been considering. I've also been considering the Honda Rebel and Nighthawk 250. One of the considerations is that I'm really short and want to start with something I can flatfoot.

I suggest taking a MSF rider safety course also....helps you be a better rider and most insurance companies will give you discounts for completing this.
Absolutely. The local community college offers them pretty regularly in the warmer months.

Sorry for the hijack.
