About a year ago people started whispering about a cross-forum get-together of Ninja 250’s. There are many forums out there dedicated to the Kawasaki Ninja 250. So, some fools at Ninja250Forum.com, 250r.net, Ninjette.org, Ninja250.org, NewNinja.com & Kawiforums.com got together and decided that there will be a rally in North Carolina at The Tail of the Dragon from August 4th-7th. We were all left to our own devices to get logistics figured out, but we had a date and a place. What more does one need?
Well, for starters, a map would be good:
Then a new chain and sprockets, a new rear tire, oil change, bath and some luggage finaglings. The last bit needed I’ve been working on for a while, and that is overtime at work. The last one is two-fold: I don’t want them to deny me a vacation because I don’t work hard enough, and I don’t want to be strapped for cash while on the trip. Well, so far, all the goals have been met, and I’ll be saddling up the 250 tonight, and leaving tomorrow morning bright and early! 4,000+ miles, here we come! I will try and update as much as I can while on the road, but it’s going to be a break-neck pace, and this geek will be running to the edge of his physical abilities, so if a post is a bit late, please be understanding.
