Newbie from California

I am finally in the position to consider getting a bike and decided to join up to learn and get help from people that know more than me.

Background:
I currently have a modified (tastefully) 3 series, thus the name. I've always wanted a motorcycle, but at first I wasn't allowed to. Then I didn't have the money to do it right. I do have experience on two wheels. I've done bmx riding in the past, mostly park and half pipe, some vert. Now I enjoy mountain biking more, going to Tahoe in the summer to ride downhill is my kind of fun.

My plan now is to do the MSF, get a ninja 250, and gear. The thing I need help with most is most likely gear. I've been doing some research on my own and have set a budget around $2,000 with helmet. I'd appreciate someone to point me in the right direction.

When it comes to bikes, I plan to eventually use it to commute, but I do want a bike to take into the hills. I enjoy technical driving a lot more than going fast in a straight line. I decided on a ninja 250 because it's pretty much recommended everywhere as a good beginner bike and it keeps it's value so if I want to get rid of it after a year it's not too hard.
