Would rather rise a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow...
Going fast in a straight line, but hitting the turns like a grandma in a stationwagon.

Go on a track day with a top rider on a 250 and let me know how often you get passed in the turns - anyone can go fast in a straight line.

Vex,

You said everything that I've been muttering in my helmet the last few months. Especially the peer pressure thing. Great post.

I bought a 2010 Ninja 250 after selling my 2006 Honda 599 that I had been riding for the last three years.

That's right, I went from an inline four 600 to a parallel twin 250 and I'm happy.
I do mostly city riding and got tired of holding back the reins on the 600.

I did have to adjust to the more frequent shifting, but I'm really enjoying being able to wring it's neck through the corners.

I love my Ninja.

The 250 section was much cooler when the bike just came out and all us '08 owners were DIY'ing, testing, and innovating new mods, fixes.
