I started out on a briggs and Stanton 2.5hp minibike. That thing was a beast, on a good day it would top 20 mph. Don't know how I ever lived through the thrills of daredeviling on that ride. You could go 10 miles on a full tank then your walking. Oh the memories! No one is going to top the danger in that gear, never heard of it back then.

I think it is good to ride a 250 cc in the MSF class, and a Ninja 250 or 300 can be good for those who want to start on a sportbike, but for most people in the U.S. at least I believe that a 650 like the Vulcan S (or Suzuki Savage/S40) would also be a decent choice to deliver enough power for highway speeds.
