No, I'm not looking to buy big. Being 5'5" and about 135 soaking wet, I don't want to ride atop a wild beast. Biggest I will ever go to is if there is ever a Ducati Diavel 600 (fat chance, but a GORGEOUS bike!).
i'm 5' 105 lbs and handle my 600rr just fine. i wouldn't call the 250r a toy bike, i rode a dr200se for a year on the street and that was a toy. this definitely has more power and is smoother. i rode the old body ninja 250 and that definitely felt like a bicycle with a motor. but a small light bike for around town is perfect. i don't plan on taking mine to the track or on mountain runs though

Have to agree with Luke. Im 43 and have had quite a few bikes in the 550-900 range. Never had anything this small, or fun to ride. I look forward to ridin the CBR, its an amazing bike. Wife even took it for a ride and loved it, now she wants one. She told me to get a bigger bike and she'd take my CBR. I said no way, Im keepin it!
So, are you going to buy another CBR250R for her?

Since I already have 3 bikes she will have to wait till next year. Just gave her the Sportster when I bought the CBR.

CBR250R, I am speaking strictly utility. I was not sure when I waded through the stopped cages, that I would stay out of their way. This scooter is not broke in, using about 1/3 throttle or slightly more, it would run up to about 37 mph, and the cars in the mirror were just hitting the send button or looking at each other. It is hilarious. But after riding this 150 scoot, I am pretty sure I will not be remotely disappointed when the cbr gets here. The scooter is shorter, and less trail. I handles different than a bike. like going from a car to a jeep.

MADD-T not sure how to post the pic, but working on it.

My friend with the Vespa LX150 and GTS300 says that it is so easy to dispatch cars at a stop light. Just crank your wrist and go. Most people are surprised that scooters can be so quick from a standing start. He said that some people try to race him at traffic lights - he suspects this is because they simply don't want to have to explain to their fellow occupants how they were just toasted by a scooter! :)

Exactly, here in so cal we have a bumper crop of idiot drivers, they could not care less if five cars make it through the traffic light as long as they wake up in time to get through. So as much as I like honking at them, I like the scooter better, let them sleep.
