    I'm looking at that VTR250, reading the reviews and they are all shinning.
    And they look pretty maaaaaaaaad in matte black.

    Early 90's CBR250 2 stroke? I would certainly buy one if they sold them in America.

    One of my mates has a 2012 ninja, 250cc for sale now. Its probably out of your price range and it is in NSW but its $5500. With 20,000 km on the clock. Its a blue one too.

    1: I can act like more of an idiot on a bigger bike "Whats the top speed!!!" kind of shit.
    2: F*** no just no, no no no no no.

    250 will be good until full R class licence and then get something that I will kill myself on.
    I agree with that. Anything bigger then a 250 youre just going to make a bigger mess. The 250 will smoke most cars to 100 anyway.

    As for a Motard (I assume this is a 50cc sit on not straddle jobby) been there done that **** that. They are more dangerous then a 250. Atleast the 250 has enough power to get you out of the way.

    For the price and condition of older 250's, I could get a Kawa Ninja 250 with 10,000k's on it.
    I wonder what Is the best long term option.........
