The Ninja 250 Riders Club is a "not-for-profit" site; we do not run the site to make money. We run this site because we enjoy riding Ninja 250's, and motorcycles in general, and want to share that enjoyment with others.
Running the site isn't free, however. It requires many hours of work to code the board software and maintain profiles, faqs, and article archives. (And actually, that stuff is all done for free by club members and administrators.) It also requires significant monetary costs for webspace, bandwidth and domain name registration. For what we spend annually getting the site on the internet and ensuring it stays there you could buy a used Ninja 250 in very good condition.
We are willing to cover these costs on our own, but we do have families and jobs to be responsible for, so we gladly accept any donations from members, if they wish to make them. We have set up a Paypal account to make it easy for board members to make a donation if they so choose. Even a dollar or two can make a difference in the end.
Please note that making a donation is not required for board access or membership, nor does it give you any additional rights. However, to make supporting the club a little bit more fun, we have annual Support Subscriptions.
Thank you for your support!
