I've been thinking about getting a ninja 250 actually. A bicycle is pretty much out of the question...i work at 5am and a bike commute would take me about an hour to get to and from work. 330am wake up times are too damn hard, plus being exhaused from riding through downtown redmond, and to downtown bellevue up the 520 hill? No thx.
Ninja sounds good to me, but i don't have the funds (just moved). Good luck on your biking expedition!
