You need to look at the newbie threads. You've started in a fine direction but a ninja 250 isn't bad as a trainer. Don't get sucked into friends telling you that you need something bigger. Take steps. Go through the MSF course and take your time learning. What ever you buy you will break. Happens to everyone. Good Luck!

First thing you should do is go take the msf class. Without a doubt it will make your choice alot easier once you've actually ridden and gotten some experience.

Remember to match your skill to the bikes potential and you'll be fine no matter which one you pick.
