I've been lurking on the RE board. I sold one of my bikes the other day so I was looking at a new white Classic Bullet Classic at the local dealer here in SWFL. Beautiful bike but I am afraid of all the issues with the REs plus the local dealer was very poor at answering all my questions about the bike. I haven't owned a Brit bike since 1967 but still remember the many times that it let me down. I replaced that 650 BSA with a Suzuki X6 Hustler and just could not belive the reliability.
I realize that the TU250 is a small bike but that is what I am looking for. I've been up the bike ladder and am now happy being on the lower rungs. I figure that if the TU250 has at least the performance of my Yamaha XT225 then I could live with it.
