Thank you, vex, this was a real eye opener. After almost 40 years of riding, I am now the owner of a 93 model 250. I intend on mostly putting around town and throwing it in the pickup and hauling it up to the mountains, something my 60 yr old carcass finds increasingly difficult to do with my 550lb kz900. I'm pretty certain my expectations are about what you stated, and I expect to have a good time. Thanks for your insight and efforts.

Great read vex, read this a year or so ago. Just re read it. Its plain ole comments sense, yet the same old stuff comes up over and over. Thanks again for trying to head off the ignorance.

Vex...perfect! You hit the nail right on the head! Loved reading this! I have a 250r and ride it everyday...there is no reason why this bike should be so "inferior" that someone can ever say that it's strong least for normal speeds. I laugh at people on a regular basis who tell me that my engine is "too small". But oh well that's their opinion....anyways thanks for the entertainment!
