My sister is thinking about getting back into riding, but it's been a few years. She does not currently have her license, so would take the Team Oregon class first. Since she is almost as beat-up as I am, I was thinking the 250 Ninja or CBR250 would be great, until I realized this would be a fine way to get a Ducati. I'm working on going halves on the cost. If that doesn't work, I might just go ahead and buy the thing myself and share. Having her on my insurance coverage was far less than I thought it would be. Assuming she fits it and likes it, would a 696/796 be too much bike? My bicycle seems heavier than either one of them. Watcha' think?
