That is a sweet bike dinamix. I would definitely get bar risers to make it even nicer. Along with a bigger headlight.

it depends on the corner, sure you can goto a parking lot and knee down going 20-30, but i don't trust parking lots

that corner i was doing 80

Yeah it was a really fun and super fast bike. But, I find I don't really need all that much power, just want something lighter and more nimble I can push harder in the twisties and maybe improve my riding.

Also, insurance was costing way too much for how little I rode it. Smaller bike will be a lot easier on the wallet.

LOL, if I can't find a 250R by August, I might end up getting a 50cc scooter for fun, hehe

Yah sucks they're (the 250) sold out, better off waiting for the early '09's to come in I think? Every used one I see has been dropped hard and they want $5k firm for it. Ridiculous... like the red one on Craigslist, signal punched through the fairing, broken mirror, scratches everywhere... but he wants more than MSRP LOL surrrrrre buddy!

Try the U.S. there's a lot of 250's come up for sale in Seattle area and people are somewhat reasonable about the prices... plus the U.S. got plasma blue! Not too much work to import a bike.

Yeah that's the plan. Me and Ulic are trying to find a dealership down south with stock, but no luck right now. And the ones that do have some won't sell to Canadians so we're kinda hooped right now.

Buying from the States has become far too regulated aka, pain in the ass.

I had a fizzer before, rock that for a while. it's no less of a bike then a kawi 250.
