I'm 6'1 230#. My dl 650 has a hard enough time lugging my fatass around everywhere I want to go. I'm afraid 250cc is just not big enough.

Maybe if I was 5'7 and 140 I would get one. Thinking about getting my gf a 250cc class to learn on and the Yam would of course be at the top of the list for pre-purchase research.

There is truth to the saying that it's more fun to go fast on slow bike than slow on a fast bike. Found this out with my dl 650 on roads available here in Honolulu

Quite like the look of the KTM390, odd engine size I know but for around town it looks good

Nope, already have a 250r. If we were in the market for another...... maybe. Would have to see how it compares to the new 300.
