Let's throw out a few more misconceptions.

Passing on the right. No law against that, you are free to do so, as long as it's safe.

I don't think that was ever the case in Ontario. I would bet that most people don't know about this particular (lack of ) law. That's why I mentioned it.

Looks OK to me. Some of the Chinese factories are building quality stuff these days, and for that price it will probably be good value.

You are not allowed to pass on any white line, but apparently there is at least one exception that I'm aware of. You can pass (if somebody is turning and blocking the roadway) on a shoulder if it's...

There was no 08 in N. America, and on the Canadian site, the MSRP (not sale price) is now $800 less than it was in 07, so I'm thinking they have a few leftovers. With it originally being a 300, I'm...

Bike prices are funny.
In 07 my KLX250 was $5999 list. Today a new one is $5199, and I bet very few go out the door for list price. I think it was 08 that the dollar was strong, and Ninja 250...

Let me simplify it.

You already have the connection between RPM and power, so think of it this way:
