After the initial 600 mi adjustment, the check/adjust intervals on the CBR250 are 16000 mi. That was one of the selling points of the 250 to me !

IMHO that's a tough one.. I think that both bikes have their own type of charisma, I love the sound of a single-pin 45 degree twin. I know that I could never have lived with a pre-2007 sportster...

Ah, now I make the connection ! It turns out that I've lusted after Guzzi's for quite a while. I was seriously thinking about a big block Le-Mans. There's something about having the 2 cylinders...
