At least no more so than usual.

Given your situation, just keep the Ninja, otherwise you spend more money on repairing the same shit you just fixed, only on a different bike.

Agreed fixing another bike with some problems = more headache that is why this time round i am considering the new bike option next. Will save me some trouble doing fix-its. plus with this great weather we have in OH i can ride most of the year long.

By then early model ('04, '05) DL650's should be selling at a very reasonable price.

Great for all around street riding with some gravel/dirt roads here and there.

Dual-sport your Ninja 250. Ditch the plastic, install mx bars and lightweight headlight assembly, move your pegs, build up the seat, install an EX500 rear shock, a fork brace, and mount d/s tires.

Then ride the crap out of it while saving up for that "ultimate" bike you'll have for a year or so before you get bored of it and look for the next "ultimate" bike.

kick start sucks in tight woods.

Best bike is the bike thats PAID IN FULL.

I would own 1 of every size, shape, color and make if I could

Sarkster my bike is available anytime you want to take it, just say the word.
(shit, remind me to renew the tags, LOL)

I like boobies.

You're right kick start sucks in technical terrain, but so does a dead battery and no place to bump-start. Shame so few bikes come with both....and oddly my TTR in Australia comes street-legal, kick and e-button. Here? Not so much, thank you EPA for protecting us from fun.

Speaking of boobs, I'm gonna go ride some dirt and backroads Friday cause I have the day off....any yayhoos wanna join me please do. I've been slowly piecing together an extensive eastern-Ohio DS route and I have some new sites to scout out....probably be a fairly relaxing ride with some trail sections sprinkled in, and likely a couple accidental forays into places I'm not supposed to be.
