Through happy circumstances at work, I find myself moving to Kona Town, to start work May 1st in Kealakekua.
I currently ride a BMW F650, but will be selling it before I leave due to the cost of shipping. Since I am a short dude with short legs, I plan to replace it with a Yamaha with a low seat height, either a TW200 or XT250.
I am wondering whether the carb'd TW would have any issues with elevation changes on the Big Island. The XT is fuel injected and would probably be the better all-arounder, though a bit taller. But the TW looks like way too much fun!
I plan to put a deposit on one of these this week and I'd appreciate any insight you guys there may be able to share.
I look forward to hanging out with some of you guys soon!
Mahalo nui la!
