Loved the gas mileage on my rebel, but the fool thing didn't like getting flogged at 70 mph and drafting rigs and pickup trucks to maintain speed so it turned in its resignation by the side of I-45. Plus my knees killed me from the cramped conditions (6'4" 218lb). Oh, well. G'luck and have fun with that bike.

midgets. I would say something about not having to bend down, but that would be rude.

Hey, Vmaxgirl. Wazzup? You didn't respond to my pm. I was worried.

none right now :(
07 ninja 250 - sold

I used to have a ninja 250 and loved the gas mileage and tearing up the back roads but freeway riding REEEEEEALY skeerd me.

I has no more bikes so I can't invite you to ride, but def. hit up those HAK peeps they are pretty safe for the most part
