You know I almost forgot about the bike being a 250, it just does what you want and only might lack a little on the interstate if you want to run 75 all day loaded down. Though I did that for hours by drafting

The bike never skipped a beat and is rock solid dependable. I rode this little bike almost 3,800 miles on this trip and it never once put me on the ground either. Recommend Dunlop 606's highly too. If you get close to buying let me know and I'll share more info with you.
