Uber newb intro

Heya CLSB. As the title say I am indeed new to the community. I like to say this is the first time I've join a community site so hopefully I can learn alot from my experienced peers. Anyways as for me, I have been riding since April when I took my MSF-Course at COD and pass. Also my first motorcycle that I currently ride is a Kawasaki ex250 03 yellow.

Welcome! Kudos on the MSF and a good starter bike.

As far as being new to a online forum...run. LOL

Kind of kidding...whatever you do, don't take anyone or anything said too seriously and have some fun.

If you don't already have one buy or download a repair manual for your specific bike.

Free downloads can be found at repairmanualclub.com.

Other than that, use the search feature first, then ask any specific question you have. We have some really great people, who enjoy sharing their knowledge with someone who is receptive.

Welcome to the site, a TON of great people here.

BTW - A lot of ribbing and joking around here online as well. All done in good humor.

Fun place

I used to have an EX250, may even still have a manual around her somewhere if you have any questions.

Great Quote - One would think that the Secret Service was smart enough to get serviced secretly.

Never underestimate the power a of a 250! He can do circles around us with that beast.

There is irony in that statement somewhere, I know it.
