On Our Way Back from the Dragon

Well, my wife made it to NC from Iowa on her NInja 250 with flying colors. And she rode every road out there we could ride with curves in it. Loved the Blue Ridge Mountain Pkwy, All of Route 28, The Dragon, and last but by no means least, the Cherahola Skyway. And I have to say I was totally impressed with her cornering ability. She seems to be a natural.
On our way back now visiting her brother in Lexington, Ky and leaving tomorrow for our last leg to Iowa.
Gotta say, that little Ninja 250 was also very impressive...but now she's ready for a bigger bike.

Re: On Our Way Back from the Dragon

Congrats to your wife on an impressive ride! The Ninja 250 is one of those sleepers in the industry. It's a very capable road bike that handles road speeds better than about any other comparable sized machine out there.

Sounds like a great trip
