Thank you for your input as an actual rider. I have owned an f4, gpz550, f3, 954, ninja 250 and gsxr600. I know a little bit about bikes and i was more than happy with the 250. Actually hoping to buy another 250 tonight about at least before 5pm tomorrow when the seller has a buyer coming.
Coming from a few experiences with a 250, and owning a Honda F2, F4i, 600rr, and a Victory V92C, I have to ask: How could anyone be satisfied with a 250??? I'm not one to go banging off the rev limiter every time, but the 09 Ninja 250 I rode last year was really only liveable within the city limits. Its light enough to toss easily around the city streets, but in the country, or any place where the speed limit was above 40mph it was terrible. Buzzy little motor that struggles to reach highway speeds, and it was downright scary on the interstate doing 68mph

At the very least, if you aren't looking for a full fledged rocket, the Ninja 500 is more liveable..
