Hi there, I am a new rider and just purchased a Ninja 300! I am thrilled to be riding and loving the new bike! Can't wait to get out of this annoying running in period, but on the other hand, I guess it is not a bad thing to be limited in speed for a while until I get more riding experience. I am really small so had my bike lowered a bit - at least I now get the balls of my feet on the road when stationary. This is one happy girl right now!
