Cbr250ra

Liking any bike is a state of mind.

The 2011 CBR250R does what it was designed to do and does it well. A 25hp commuter powerplant in a small cheap sport bike package. Minimalism.

Diesel

Give me one reason why it does not make sense for Harley to be selling a Diesel bike, all things considered.

what harley is doing

I am not an investor in Harley, wish I had been, but I do wish them well. I am very high on Harley's target market list.

I do resent the attitude of their dealers I have strayed into and many of...

chinese bikes

This is great stuff. I bet that in 5 years we will see serious super sports from China. I hope they add their own ideas and push the concepts forward.

Check out the Sachs x-road.

This year I think to pick up another SRX250. I miss the one I sold a while ago into Mid Ohio swap meet. I liked it even better than the SRX6.
