PM'ed. I'm keeping it though. It has WAY more power than my old air cooled 250 Honda, so it should keep me entertained for quite a while. It is also supposed to get insanely good gas mileage. So my plan is to drive it whenever I don't need to use the truck or when it's too far to bicycle. :)

thanks for the chat. nice buy, enjoy it. and yeah, most bikes get very good mpg compared to a cage - but the little ones flat out embarrass the hybrids and hypermilers.

anybody riding? I've done some rides to meet up with friends on the ninja 250. A few days ago I went out to the ORV area and did some adventuring on the XR:

I've been to busy riding to goto motorcycle events. Something about standing around talking to people takes away from the actual riding part.

I need to get a motorcycle. Can't afford a Harley yet though. I've been thinking a Triumph Bonneville America or maybe some type of stripped-down bagger like a Road King equivalent, just to be different.
