Bingo.The little CBR is a great starter bike but it lacks power. After someone learns to ride and then gets on a bigger bike they realize it. And most then want to move up. I have the 250 but also have a 600 and a 1300. I like riding all of them but wouldnt want the little 250 as my only bike
- the CBR250R for highway, cross-country, and cross continental touring/camping.
I'm planning a trip next June out to BC then up to Haines Alaska (via Ferry) then riding back from there through Whitehorse YK, and the Icefields Parkway (Jasper/Banff AB) then on home.
I'm GOING TO stop in Thunder Bay on the way home. I'll let you take the FJR for a spin.
You missed my point entirely. I love my WeeBR. You can ride a minibike with a Briggs and Stratton powering it across the country. Should you? 5hp, no suspension, tiny tires. Or you could a ride a V8 powered Boss Hoss across the Trans America Trail.Hmm. Ride what you like, it's all good. Yeah, the 250 is not right for you, I can see that. But for a lot of people, the 250 can do just about anything.
