Evening everyone, thought I better introduce myself. Brought a 97 CB250 Thursday 24th jan, good tires and rego til Sept, but a bit neglected, painted with a spray can over the transferrs! and the engine silverfrosted and exhausts gloss black (in places) BUT IT WAS CHEAP Passed my L test Friday 25th and flu solo that night, just down to fill the tank. Cars have gotten a lot bigger and faster since I last rode in 1973. Anyway I got braver and by the end of the weekend was going to Kurnell and around Cronulla. Longest trip has been to Holsworthy. Just had the the seals in the forks done and it makes a surprising difference to the handling!!!But I suppose you experienced blokes know that,,,, dont laugh Im trying hard.
