    Sold the VFR800 today. Before anyone asks, no I didn't sell it for enough to buy another bike.

    I may need some clarification... *wink wink*

    Not sure what type of bike I'll even want to go with, but damned if this big 'ol fattie isn't attracted to the liter-class sportbikes. I'll need to lose some weight before I buy one. Good motivation to start running again, and by the time I'm in shape I should be able to afford one.

    It's more fun to go fast on a slow bike than it is to go slow on a fast bike.

    In other news, the guy that bought my bike texted me saying he took it up to 145 on the morning commute today. My poor baby.

    I like having the power to get that forced-grin every now and then Even my old Yammy has the beans to do it, then there's stupid bikes, like the old man's ZX14... that thing doesn't make me smile, it makes my pants full of something squishy and smelly...

    Speaking of the FJ1100, got it out for a 40 mile ride today, was nice to ride it again. Got my 55w HID headlight all dealt with, seems to work good. Thinking about selling it this summer for something newer, not sure what though.

    nooooo,buy mine, for 4000 or something. i hate mine so much. its so slow(only goes up to 100 stock, even after muffler, shimmed, removed air snorkel, etc, still only 100) i get made fun by all the kids in tech school. there like, you got a 250.... and laugh. must be the age group, im 19. could have gotten a 600, but insurance is expensive and i even had a clean record at the time.
    2012 Ninja 250 - bought only with 3 miles on it. chopped the stupid fender license plate thing off and put flush mount blinkers on since. i like it though, around town is fun. and on the highway, it is fine. FMF muffler btw

    Get a suit, get to the track, and eventually start competing in ultra light weight shootouts with your 250!

    A lot of people on my local cycle board love them. Easy to control and throw around, great fun for beginner racing because you don't have to worry about harnessing the power from a 600 or 1000.

    If you think the rider in the above vid isn't draggin his knee around almost every turn, you're wrong!

    As I was tinkering with my KX 250f tonight adjusting the levers and such I noticed the throttle didnt feel quite right. It didnt snap back to the neutral position very smoothly. I pulled it apart and found that my throttle cable is fraying like a motherfucker and needs replaced. *Sigh* The joys of used vehicles. Motosport.com here I come...
