Hi All, I am nearly 40, got my first bike on my 16th b'day (Honda H100 Barnyard Special) and moved up to fireblades, RF900, 900SS and things, but sold all, went traveling and haven't ridden for over 10 years. Been itching for a bike more and more and finally snapped. Last week bought a '99 Honda VTR 250 for $2350: Just what I wanted, cheap, light, fun and handles well. I can ride it flat out and not go to jail too. I put an old cut down staintune muffler on it and now it's nice and loud, a bit lighter and a good 5+ kph faster up the freeway. Anyway, love this site, a great resource. Thanks for reading, Steve.
