    Had the same experience with Mrsposer at the Atlanta show. Of course she also sat on a guys TW this summer and liked it a lot too. Probably be getting her either one of those or an XT225. The 225 version is lighter and has a six speed but the 250 is styled better and has the rear disc and a few other nice features. But with Mrsposer being small the lighter 225 might be the better choice over the 250 that picked up considerable pork in the upgrade. Of course after getting her one I have no doubt that I'll want one of my own. I'm kinda torn between the three myself too.

    I bought ours for my wife to learn on. Was going to get a KLX250 but there was no chance of her being able to touch ground comfortably on the KLX. After getting it , she rode it a few times but just wasn't that interested, maybe later. So I end up riding the little thing everywhere!

    The XT 225 is not the 238lbs advertised. It is 268 including a turbocity tail rack. The XT250 is probably 10-15 heavier.

    Nothing special to these photos, but wanted to share nonetheless. Two photos of my bike taken several months back. She's "The Little Bike That Could":

    Here is a Road Trip that I did with my Yamaha XT-250

    Trip&#8230;to explore the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wayne</st1:placeName> <st1:placeName w:st="on">National Forest</st1:placeName></st1:place>.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    From <st1:City w:st="on">Sandusky</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State> to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State></st1:place>.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Side trip to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:State w:st="on">West Virginia</st1:State></st1:place>. (No picture on this report but the riding was great&#8230;very rough trails and access roads up and down through the mountains)

    <o:p></o:p>
    780 miles traveled in three days on a Yamaha XT-250.

    <o:p></o:p>
    First stop was in <st1:placeName w:st="on">Rosco</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">Village</st1:placeType> in Coshocton <st1:State w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Ohio</st1:place></st1:State>&#8230;Lunch time.

    A little detour to check out the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wills</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">Lake</st1:placeType></st1:place> area off SR-83 just South of Coshocton&#8230;I heard that is was a good off road area. Well, it looked great. I did not spend much time there but I will be back.

    I got to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City> <st1:State w:st="on">Ohio</st1:State></st1:place> that night and stayed at the Best Western.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placeName w:st="on">Wayne</st1:placeName> <st1:placeName w:st="on">National Forest</st1:placeName></st1:place> is just out of town to the East.

    The roads in the National Forest are great. I traveled SR-26 from <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Marietta</st1:place></st1:City> to Woodsfield through the National Forest. From there I took SR-78 to SR-536 to <st1:City w:st="on">Hannibal</st1:City> then SR-7 back to <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Marietta</st1:City></st1:place>.
