Looking good man, its always to see pics of other people's bike and it out on the roads. I know what you mean about the hassle on the engine size! I have been riding my 250 for nearly three years now and I am still not tired of it. Could definitely handle a 600 or larger but I am not in any hurry to upgrade. But anytime I here people make fun of the bike, I just think that they are the ones without a motorcycle and getting 15 mpg and not having any fun while losing that money. The 250 is still a really capable bike. I take mine through the canyons here in Utah all the time and it handles awesomely. Have fun with the bike!
