Traded in the ceebee

Well after lots of shopping around and test rides at a handfull of dealerships, i found a new bike.. the reason i had to move on was due to severe pain i was having in my hip after taking rides longer than 30 minutes..i would limp around for hours.. i tried stretching, yoga, aleve, nothing worked..i loved the ceebee though, it was an awesome bike..I looked at the nc700 seat hieght too high, the shadow phantom was nice but was more expensive than any other bike i was looking at, the sv650 has about the same riding stance as the ceebee and thats where the hip problem came into play, so i rode a suzuki m50 boulevard, and was exremely impressed. and after an hour and a half ride home from the dealership, no hip pain!!! Well my former fellow ceebeers, thanks for the laughs, information and help..Heres to the cbr 250!!

Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they've led
Listen not to what's been said to you

good luck with your new ride.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

Congratulations, I hope you're happy with your new bike.

He knows not where he's going, for the road it will decide, it's not the destination, but the glory of the ride.

Thanks for the sentiment guys, riding a cruiser is a little different than the ceebee..when i was test riding other bikes, handling and manuverability was one of the things i was definately feeling for along with riding position..the m50 is an 800cc bike, very well balanced and acceleration is very smooth..I had a huge grin on my face after the test ride.
