  1. '97 Balius 250, a lady friend of mine is looking to buy one.. I don't know how good or bad they are..

    cheers, 8)

  2. Awww, nobody wants to answer....

    OK, I will :p

    A lady who is a friend of mine has a Balius and loves it. She suffers from "arse too close to ground" syndrome and the bike is well suited.

    Nice looking naked bike IMHO

    Typical 4 cyl 4 stroke too fiddy problems, ie revs like all hell to get anywhere,
    and this bike is especially awkward to do plug changes.

    I have heard that the engine doesn't last that long, but for a learner bike that will be sold in favour of a bigger bike later, it's more than good enough.

  3. Thanks for that, i'll pass on the info, :)
