Ninja 300 hanging out with the big bikes!
-I'm actually a fairly shy/introverted person so I am both surprised and proud at myself for approaching this group. Very intimidating taking your little 35 horsepower 300 to a group of big bikes. But they were cool and didn't even care. Riding around doing nothing on May 3rd 2015 when I ran into a group of local riders. This was in the south coast Massachusetts. I had a lot of fun even though I did feel a bit out of place. Every bike there had at least 3-4 times the amount of power my bike had hahaha but the little 300 did surprisingly well. If anyone from this meet up or any other meet ups in the Mass area see this video please message me on how I can become a member of your group. I'd love to go on more rides!

Here is a good article that compares the Ninja 300 to the CBR500: http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/comparisons/122_1307_honda_cbr500r_vs_kaw asaki_ninja_300/off_the_record.html Check out my review of the bike after riding it for 6 months! http://youtu.be/f-IpDdofWhg
