Hi everyone! I found this great site looking for some information while shopping for my new bike and there is quite a bit of good stuff here on the VTR250. I am thinking of either a 1995 CB400 or 1998 VTR250. I have been riding for a year and a half now on Korean built 125s. (that's where I live and it was easy to get started on something small and local - parts,maintence etc.) With the summer coming here I want to move up from 125cc. I think I will be pretty happy with either the 250 or 400, my question is whether I will outgrow the 250 too soon to make it worth buying. I took the VTR for a ride, and loved it, it is so superior to what I have now it was incredible. It felt like I had jumped up more than only 125ccs. I have read a couple posts going both ways on the 250 - small enough to outgrow, and fun enough to keep for a while. If anyone has any thoughts on these two bikes I would love to hear them. Any comparisons for me would help, as far as maintenance, reliability, performance, fun factor, etc. I will probably be taking the 400 for a spin this week sometime, so I will have ridden both of them. I would love to hear what you have to say. Thanks very much in advance.
