Hey All! I am the proud owner of a 2012 black 250r that I bought in April of this year. It's my first bike and I have loved every minute I have spent on her. She has just over 5000 miles in the six months I have had her; mostly commuting miles, but it's my only vehicle.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, in California. I've been posting on the forums for a little while so I figured I'd introduce myself. I'll leave you with a little pic of my baby before a 40 mile ride down Skyline Blvd / CA-Hwy 35.
Thanks! I love her. I saw that you sold yours I do plan on upgrading to a larger bike eventually, but I'd really like to hang on to the 250 because of the gas mileage and it's a great bike for new riders to learn on, like the rest of my family
Nice bike. Black is one of my favorite colors on the 250.
I'm the same as you. I'm always thinking of getting a bigger bike, but I would hate to lose the insanely awesome gas mileage I get on the 250. I commute with mine also, and I really stay so busy that the only times I get to ride is when i'm going to work or school. I think i'll keep it and buy a completely impractical bike as a toy.
