Ahhh....CBR 250. Just bought a black non ABS for the wife, and admittedly, for me to assault the local roads.

What you are thinking is 100% correct! My wife has really enjoyed it, as have I. Can't wait for warmer weather and more (s)miles on the CBR

Pic for good measure

I still think a Harley XR1200X would be a better fit for me, but...

Today I had to run to the local bike shop for a new battery for my bike, and of course I sat on nearly everything there in the mean time

One bike that I was surprised was as comfortable as it turned out to be was the 2011 GSXR 750. Yes, my legs were up high on the pegs, but other than that the position wasn't that much more aggressive than my Ninja 500. That was surprising to be honest. Just another bike to lust after...

I'm 6' tall and 33 inseam. I fit on the wee-B-R without any feel of being cramped.

It's everything I loved about the Ninja 250 with all the stuff I wish it had.

I'm 6'2" 34 inseam, I agree. I can't get my knees under the tank on the Ninja, but the CBR fits nicely.

Kinda a V-twin version of the Vmax, in style. There was one zipping up and down the roads by where I live the last week.

Happy recolections of Interesting Experiences we had on those bikes. Thanks for the post!
