Hi from Europe

Hi all,

My name is Will. I am moving to the USA.
after a Honda XL 600, XJ 600, Honda VFR 750, KLE 500 (Kawasaki dualsport with EX 500 engine), XJ 600 (again), VFR 400 Rothmans, GSX 400 E (2), Honda XRV 750 Africa Twin, GN 250, GPZ 550 (2) I decided to buy
the Honda CBR 250 which is a nice bike for the money. As you can see I have
owned a bunch of bikes in the 20 years I am driving. With the Africa Twin I drove all the way from Riga to Morocco North Africa and then to Amsterdam which was 6000 miles in one month.

For the past 5 years I have been living in Riga, Latvia which is part of the Baltic States which borders with Russia. Originally born in Caracas, Venezuela but I lived all my life in the Netherlands close to Amsterdam.

Here in Riga I rented the CBR 125 and....what was that an amazing surprise!
Ofcourse 2 up I couldn't keep up with a BMW 520i and omg those typical macho's were so proud! That was funny...

But otherwise 100% satisfied. My last experience with a 125 (Yamaha TW 125) was not so positive.

The problem is I made a testdrive on the CBR 250 and was kind of dissapointed that on the higher RPM it was not so smooth as the 125.
(actually it was really bad)
Does anyone has experience with this? I think I will buy one anyway because
that one might have been abused. (engine made some strange noise)

Since this will be the first time buying a motorcycle in the usa I hope someone
can give me advise. How much costs I need to ad on the SRP? Also I wanna buy it in another state then the one I will be living. Is there anything special like to do technical inspection and registration at the local DMV after buying it?

How are the insurance rates? (liability only for example)

Any info/help appreciated. I truly love the Repsol scheme....
