250's may not wheelie well, but they'll get airborn

I've discovered this going into the Rookies parkinglot for the last few weeks, but....

Sunday I found the railroad intersection going to HMP quite exhilerating at 65mph, one handed since the other was holding glass articles in my backpack, and today at the Tomball SteakHouse ramp into the parkinglot near 249

AJ01R6 and BigUgly1 can verify.

Pics to come, Larry and I decided we needed to go back to document some runs

edite: says "cant wheelie WELL" ...not "cant wheelie"

from a power aspect, I agree. They do wheelie great, once at the balance point, but once coming down it stays down, until you start the lift process all ovah gain.

I bet it will not do 140 mph under its own power -- on a flat-road with no tail-wind or power-adders?

no i completely agree. just clarifying for Cali's thread title. he never said they cant wheelie, but other posters think thats what he is trying to say.

oh yeah, the HYO 250 does wheelie! like you said its the rider, not the bike.

cali DONT wheelie though.


(but for arguments sake... I can see people who say "they dont wheelie well" if tey are coming from a huge brutish power beast...they arent used to the low power/high rev technique to get it up. I am not stating they dont wheelie. just can see peoples issue with it,)

Total thread jack, but has anyone seen the turbo kits they're making for these? Looks like a fun street ride. Can double the hp!

No thread jack at all.

I think its cute everyone gives me for the bike.


I also think its funny I gave the fast group w some ducatis a head start and still caught them on a livingston ride(pretty straight roads)

Everyone gets caught up in 'bigger is better' but I'll be honest, the busa was fun, I miss the power considering any other bike I've ridden, but this 250 is still the most fun I've had on two wheels

Haha, nice cali. Agreed, smaller bikes can be a lot of fun b/c you can just twist the throttle and just have fun with it. With bigger displacement throttle restraint is needed or you can get in deep real fast.
