Is there enough torque to wheelie a 250?

That's what I started on too Good turn around value on them. When you want to sell it, there will be someone who wants a used one they can not be afraid to drop or be intimidated by. Smart cookie!

We def need more girl riders at the meets

Thats good i definetly dont wanna be the only one....i have to make friends first, but i am kinda shy. i only know a few people on here and thats it.

Yea thats what i wanna do, but i was thinking i would just keep the 250 and buy a new one too, just kinda have two bikes.

Yeah, you could always have a back up

I remember the first time I pushed the 250 & I was like "whoa! awesome! It's hellafast." Then within the same month, I was redlining it (like the bike temporarily shut down) and was like, "whoa! what happened?" IMO, you will accustom yourself to the power super fast and be ready to jump up to the next level sooner than you think.

Then all the guys will tease you about "grandma gears" whether you haul a** or not

Oh yea BTW.... If you are planning on trading up after a couple of months, make sure you wear the buyer out to get the lowest price possibly. That way you can sell the bike in a couple of months and won't lose much if any at all. (Sorry current bike sellers for encouraging low balling bwhahahaha)
