Agreed. I ride my bike to work, but if I'm "Having Fun" in the CITY (you're from Nor-cal, so you know which city I refer to), it's all about a smaller bike, in my case (as you can see under my signature, more cc's, but SO much smaller!) However, for YEARS it was always the Rockster, and no lie, they do GREAT jumping up/down curbs and hitting ALL the massive potholes in the streets.
I have the CBR250R now as my urban and weekend fun-ride bike. Perfect going into The City; perfect for half-day jaunts out through the Delta and Lake Berryessa and Napa...
But my "trip" bike is under construction and should be ready by spring...
