Welcome! I joined the "Pocket Rocketeers" after my 2015 NINJA 1000 was totaled.
I miss it dearly, probably always will, but I know my 2017 NINJA 300 KRT is a better choice for me right now. I had a 2008 250R that I loved (I sold it to my sort of "adopted son" when I got the N1K, so it's still in the "family"), so it was the good feelings associated with that, much better fit (I'm only 5'2", 28" inseam), having it paid for outright, lower insurance and maintenance costs, the availability of luggage for it, and the fact that there was a green one sitting on my local dealership's showroom floor with my name on it right at the time that I needed it, that made me decide to go with it. My still-young-enough-to-have-one ego is still bruised a little bit, but it's getting better with time and miles on the 300 (somewhere around 4600 or so, I think).
I had a chance to ride a 2016 'Busa when I worked Suzuki Demo Days (I'm a RiderCoach). Suzuki requires two RCs for lead and sweep on demo rides, so I spent two days riding every liter bike they had! I had four trips on the 'Busa (two each day) because that's all that my bum shoulder (due to being rear-ended in our car) could handle. But, man, you could tell the thing was an absolute BEAST (of course, I wasn't riding it anywhere near its potential), and it cornered like nothing I had ever ridden before!! It was an hour's ride to and from the dealership and I had ridden the 250 there; on the ride home, I found myself going, "Where's the oomph??" I had been drooling over the N1Ks ever since they came out with the bags, but my 2010 Honda NT700V was paid for, I had the 250 for fun, and I didn't need a liter bike. Well, my husband had been after me to sell a bike, so after 500 miles on liter bikes, I told him I would sell both and buy a new one to do it all. I had 23,000+ wonderful miles on it, but I truly am looking forward to the coming years on my 300! Hope you'll love yours, too!
