So I'm considering swapping my FZ6 for a smaller bike that's a bit lighter and easier in the city for commuting, but I'd still like it to be fun at the weekend being chucked around back roads. I'd tour on it too, but I'm not bothered about mega speed. I'm wondering if a ninja 250r would fit the bill. Note: here in the UK, the ninja isn't quite so synonymous with learners as it is in the USA. Has anyone here done anything similar- downsized to a much smaller bike? Was it worth it? Why did you do it? Or, why wouldn't you do it?!
