How big you are...???? If you are more than 200Lbs look for a Kawasaki Ninja 500 or Suzuki 500, a 250cc will be to small for you.

Re: Cheap Beginner Bike

when we had the 250 it hit 110 w/ me on board.

although i do think a 500 is a better overall bike, the 250 still gets around..........

here some bikes
