Well its my turn, Went to get petrol today for the 250 looked across the road at Yamaha and saw the XT660X. Was used had 1,000km on it and just had its first service. Took a test ride on it and bought it that day $9000 ride away. Feels a lot different from the 250 a lot more torque, steers a lot better. doesn't feel so old. LOVE IT!
