Name is Tim, i reside in Naples, Fl, I owned this bike for 8 months, it is the only Kawi I have had was a old 1997 KX250 racing bike (as my first bike lol) when I was 17. I gotta tell you, that bike scared the shit out of my, wrecked into a tree day 1, no damage to me or the bike, after a few days of putting around my yard getting used to it, i put on my riding gear (I always ride with a helmet), so jacket, pants, boots, etc, etc.
Go down the road cruising in 5th at what sounds like a high RPM I don't know what the RPM was on this bike, but i was hauling some tail.
I'm glad this bike was a off road racing bike, I had a Lawn mowing truck pull out from no where (was literally hiding behind trees), So quick choice, no more then 2 seconds to react:
try to stop from ~50?
try to get around the truck and hope the stop?
or go into the ditch, jump the driveway, and pray to god that you live??
I chose #3, they did stop, but I still went into the 3' ditch, and up the incline over the driveway, and landed on the flat ground on the other side, the lawn truck was on the other side of the road, but taking up the entire road.
I was shaking like a leaf in a hurricane, but I decided to keep going to the trails at the end of my street, where I fell in love with this KX250.
Like a idiot I got rid this bike a few months after I bought it. traded it for a racing swamp buggy, youtube it they are awesome.
but I tracked it down, and I found out where it is...4 years later I am attempting to get it back!!!
she has a blown motor, and i don't know how rough she is currently..but damn it i want the bike back!!!!!
I don't have any pictures, just a scary story, and a hope to get it back
I really hope I do get it back
