My next street ride

If I ever go back to street riding, it would be on something like this:

http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/pr...96/0/home.aspx

I never realy liked the DR-Z400 SM. The Aprilia 450 is very nice looking, and I'm sure it's a blast, but I think the Yamaha's much lower price makes it a very interesting proposition.

It's a 250. You can ride for hours on 2 gallons of fuel. It's not meant to be a touring bike, just a toy.

yeah a 250 will get 70ish mpg
it'll go further on 2 gallons thana busa will on 4 gallons
it would be a fun commuter bike though [if I didn't have to ride down I-10]

i've gotten as high as 49 mpg on my busa and i have a 5.5 gallon tank. but with the 250 at 70 mpg, you'd only go about 100 miles before you fill up. I don't like the thought of running on .25 gallons. that sloshes around alot and could make you run dry

i get about 30 - 34 around town, 45-49 on the highway, depends on if i'm crouched or not... and that is doing about 85ish, at 70 it's over 50 mpg but that is where my computer thing stops... i can't do 160 miles at 70 without ruining it by getting on it a little bit

guarantee there will be a high comp piston for it in no time. probably a nice set of cams too. man that thing is nice. i would get in to so much trouble on that thing. probably be trying to slide the rear and trying to wheelie everywhere.
