I rode a gsxr for my first time 2 months ago. I loved the out of it no lie. With my range i cant afford it and im only here for so long so i dont want to go over 1500. The gs500 is something i have really looking into even though its not the best it has a little more power then a 250. A 250 is a great circuit bike just like for honda a single cam and a light chasis would be ideal for circuit. Its all power-weight ratio.

You are on the right path, no worries.
Conquer the gs500, sell it for what you paid for it (most likely).
Then move to something else when you feel comfortable.
Remember, displacement is absolutely NOT the only factor when deciding on a motorcycle.
Anyone can control ANY size motocycle in normal conditions. It's the emergency or irregular situations that the higher CC or Super Sport bikes are more unforgiving than most motorcycles.

you are buying a bike that you are going to ride from now until april when you leave for the service?
If I understood that right and the amount of money you want to spend for a temporary ride... then the 250 might really be the best way to go.. a dual sport type bike...
and as has been said in order to get your motorcycle license you are going to have to take the riders course... and you will likely do that on a 250.. so that will give you an idea what they can do...
and I know that what i am about to say will be considered an insult to some on here, but the fact is that anyone who tells you they got bored on a 250 has just told you they never really learned to ride it to its full potential...
I have been riding for 47 years, I own 5 bikes and am about to add a 6th and that one will be a 100 or less... each bike has its own kind of ride and its own challenge
