Not sure where your at PVester, but there are usually a bunch of rebel 250's on Craigslist here. My wife was talking about here own bike so I was looking for awhile. Since she has cooled off to just want to ride with me. Maybe someday I'll be able to get her on her own ride.
Been wanting to do the same with my girlfriend but she wrecked my first bike while teaching her to ride the whole reason why this thread exist so now it's for sale again I want to get her a ninja 250 but she terrified of shifting gears and wants a twist n go scooter but I know she'll be bored of it then I'm out that dough
I have to say, if I came across my first bike again, I might buy it back for up to $200-400 more than I sold it for to get it back...... I sold it for way too cheap when I got rid of it, but I needed the money at the time.
