They tend to creep up on you every once and a while. Lol. No pun intended. Beer is food.

Depends on the group

If you are with the so called "fast" guys that pin it on the straight and park in the corners, you'll get frustrated fast...

Pick the right group that cruises on the straights and plays in the corners, and it will be up to the 250 rider and his skill set.

Just went riding with a friend who is in town for today.

He has a Chinese carburated 250 and we traded bikes at a light. Boy that thing is so fun, you gotta really hammer the throttle and rev it.

With 100mpg it made me rethink my next motorbike purchase.

Honestly CuongNutsis way faster on his 250 than I am on my 650.. in the twisties the 250 can carry more speed through the corners.
