Plus the insurance is cheap on it, and its an alternative to my sport bike, which I dont want to ride in our cold weather
I am picken mine up tommorow, and am real excited!
BTW is it true that the KLX 250 S comes with a skidplate already? cause I didnt notice it when I was test riding it, but someone told me they do
Skid plate is rather small, directly under the engine, between the frame rails -- gotta look to find it. It protects the bottom of engine, but does nothing for gravel, etc. thrown back from front wheel into front of engine.
I'm looking for a plate that will also curve up in front of engine a little.
