Despite the sporty riding position and a firm seat- I find it better than my earlier motorcycle which had softer suspension and an upright riding position. Never faced issues apart from a conked off stator coil that made me ride without any electricals whatsoever. Tried to compensate by doing this:I want to know peoples experiences on long distance traveling on the CBR250. What's the longest trip you taken? Was the ride comfortable? Any issues along the way?
My longest ride was a day trip along a winding road in northern Ontario. AWESOME trail.
Next summer I'm thinking of a cross Canada trip.
Starting the bike was another issue as the juice left in the battery could only support the FI system and not crank the bike. So I used to push the bike up the slope with all the luggage and then roll it down for a push start.
