Jordans never ridden a motorcycle and will show that it really isnt that hard once you get the hang of it.
Sorry for the yelling, its difficult to hear anything over the slip-on and the helmet.
The progression I used was taight to me by RTI.
Thank God Betty wasnt dropped! :)

      if you can drive a manual car ( stick shift ) then riding a motorcycle isn't that much different. Basically a bicycle with more power. Clutch, gear, gas.. clutch, gear, gas... Same when downshifting, Except you want to pay more attention to the RPM when downshifting. To high of an RPM without a "throttle blip" (catches the RPM up with rear tire) you may experience some rear tire shake...( same thing if you jump down 1 to many gears.)

      Great vid. I'm looking at getting my 1st bike this next spring. It's a toss up between the Honda CFR250L and the CB300F. I'm leaning more to CB300F.

      @Mango Boi yeah, since I made that post, I have decided on the CRF. It's a little more expensive up front, but the maintenance, insurance, and operation costs are lower. Replacement body work is also cheaper. I will be keeping it for a good long while as a daily driver, and already have a few upgrades planned.

      I'd go with the 250 if you won't be keeping it for more than 6 months or a year.

      A stationary ninja will only shift from first to neutral it's a safty thing

    • Patrick Touchstone
      Patrick Touchstone In reply to Distortzz

      Downvoted your comment. It's not a safety thing, it's a convenience thing. It's called a positive neutral finder, and it allows you to easily enter neutral when you're at a stop. Bikes that do not have this system require you to lift up on the shifter halfway, which is time consuming and will often annoyingly put you into second from first gear.

      Me too bro, I’ve had my 08 ninja 250r for like 2 years. It’s great on gas and was nice for me (when I was learning) but now I’ve gotta get some more speed the 250 has very little passing power on the highways.
