Default Newbie (near) London

Hello,

Well after a 20+ year sabbatical from bikes (my last being a Kawasaki KR1S) I have returned and have just purchased (last night) a 2011 CBR250 with just 235 miles on the clock.

I am on a restricted license for the next 18 months and was torn between this and a 650 (with throttle stop ) but I am very pleased with my decision. Ample power for me and my commute, no issue on the motorway.

Nowhere near as much power as my 1989 250, but to be honest, with me that a good thing.

Just hope this isn't a long winter.

Great forum BTW.
