A level 1 track day.

The first upgrade for my bike will be a set of Michelin Pilot Road 2 tires... about $250.00 shipped. Although I have not mounted them up yet on my CBR, on past bikes I've owned, top shelf tires make a world of difference.

Complete nonsense from a complete noob. DudeMan, shouldn't you be working on Plasti Dipping your swingarm, or maybe the fork lowers. How about the crankcase? Any of those would be great projects, that would give you yet more reasons not to ride your bike. Just think about the new threads you could start, not to mention the youtube videos.

Agreed. Some people here bought a 250 for its economy. However just like an econobox car it looks faster then it really is. Evidently dude didn't realize that a 250 made to look fast is not fast and now is having some buyers remorse. Maybe he found out girls don't think its big enough? As it seems he is more worried about appearances then riding ability.

Tires have always been a great upgrade on bikes I have owned. Steel brake lines are always nice. Sometimes pads are a good benefit. Better gear is a great upgrade too.

I have a theory that the Dude is way more concerned about appearances than he is about learning to ride. That he thinks a 600 is the answer to his problems pretty much shines a bright light on his issues. "Cruising/Coasting" around on a 600 at 35 mph will give him the "street cred" he so desires, while doing the same on a two-fiddy has shown him that isn't happening. DudeMan doesn't have the "sack" to learn to ride the CBR250R within it's capabilities. He would be perfectly happy being just another poser on a 600. How sad is that?

I wonder what dudes strips look like.. Lol. I really quite enjoy throwing this bike into cornera and was hella suprised by the handling. You can grip it n rip it on this bad boy. I love the 250 for what it is, an economy bike, but it does perform well.

lol you guys are comedians as well. keep it up!

Obviously, I didn't buy this 250 for speed. I bought it for a learner's bike and to save some coin for a while.

If I were trying to be more macho I certainly would have never thought about ever getting a scooter, much less a chinese scooter. lol (+1)

All of you that are defending the cbr250r are in denial, acceleration on this bike gets boring just like some of your jokes. (+1)
