After three weeks of riding the MONSTER, today I picked up my VTR250 from SCMC after getting the clutch replaced and fluids serviced ! Getting back on the VTR250 has surprised me ! Its not trying to throw me off the back seat. I'm not slapping the tank. Its quiet as ! Its responsive and smooth. It soaks up the bumps. And it weaves in and out of traffic like a push bike !! The seat and handle bars are so narrow. I've become so use to the agressiveness of the MONSTER the VTR feels so light and pushbike like. It feels like I can do stunts on it being so light and easy to handle. Now, do i part off with her and replace her with a Vespa or Gilera Runner 200 or do I keep her as the commuter ? . . . .i've got this Italian thing going ! .
