I like the XT250. If it's anywhere near as good a duallie as my 2007 XT225 then it should do well. My only mark against the 250 is that it's a five speed. That's one of the best things about the 225. That and how suprisingly torquey the 225 is. And the great gas mileage.Mine easily gets 95 mpg if I take a long ride and keep it at 50mph.
I will be taking some overnight back road trips on my XT when the weather gets better.We're already planning some. My wife will ride her SYM HD200. Can't talk her into camping though!!
