There is a huge difference. The 08+ models have a new model. Pre-08 and you got a totally different setup. Not trying to knock your bike, or his bike. I drove a 06 ninja 500. Great bike, capable of a lot, but limits were there.

I am sure any of these good riders could hop on a 250 and smoke me. But you can't tell me the setup on those older 250s (such as the one he is riding) is very good compared to what others are riding (or even an 08+ 250). He may be just as skilled and capable, but his bike is not. Just a warning.

AFAIK the new 250 chassis differs very little from the old ones. Slightly less rake and 17 inch wheels. Same fork and rear shock setup.

Not about to get into argument about this. I admit I know very little. I do know that most of the guys running the "moderate" pace are usually on bikes of a much higher caliber, and more oriented towards that type of riding.

Anyways, I am sure it is very possible to run the moderate pace on an older model 250. I doubt I am good enough to do that.

I like the conversation going on about the 250 and dont see any bashing going on. Im not scaring myself "keeping up". Actually, I think the bike can still go faster on turns and I am the limiting factor.

I could grab both your comments and come up with: With the right gear (maybe stickier tires and upgraded suspension) AND training for me (trackdays) should make me a more potent biker.

My appetite for buying a more powerful bike is always beaten down whenever I think and feel (on the turns) that I can be faster on the 250 with more seat time and trackdays.

@ topic:
I might go to pp1 and even pp69 to M&G tomorrow but I have to be somewhere at 2 so probably wont go ride in the forest.



EDIT:
@mudbug:
You are my hero lol. I wish I can be like you

I'm leaving for PP1 with a KSU @ 7:15 to leave for PP69 with a KSU of 8:15 to leave for Texaco 149/105 with a KSU of 9:30 to leave for. . . (well you get the general idea)
