Default New to 250's - Just bought one.

I bought a 1992 CBR250RR MC22 today. Its a toy project for me. I sold my F2 and have missed having an early 90's bike. I found a place that imports 250's and 400's. SO I figured why the heck not?

14 000km showing on the odo. It needs a little work here and there, but soon I'll have it shined up nice.

Thanks,

I still have my F4.. but am looking at selling it right now to get another CBR250RR or a CBR400RR. I bought the 250 as a "toy" or project to play with.. and it turns out that I have not ridden my 600 since I bought it. The 250 will hit 170-180 km/h without much effort and in the twisties is just as quick, if not quicker then your average 600. It is a riot. It is much MUCH faster then a Ninja 250 because of the higher spec inline 4 engine that revs out forever. The other bonus is the fact that I pay virtually nothing on insurance (which is mandatory in Canada... and very expensive) for the 250 compared to the 600's.

That is one sweet looking bike, if I may ask where did you get, I recently bought a CBR 125R and I want something bigger like a 250 or 400 just enough to stay under the insurance radar but enough to have that extra bit of power when I need it. Thanks James

Windbell in Vancouver is good, Milliontrading in GTA and there is Nuak in GTA. I don't recommend Nuak because he is a jerk to deal with. A genuine ****.
