My very first road bike after many years on the dirt track. I can't really comment on other 250 cruisers but Im quite happy so far with my gv250. Ive done 1200kmls and seems to be really opening up now going half throttle. But now I must admitt with my experience of riding mainly on dirt I should've gone to a 650. Doing my P's in a few weeks time and if all goes well I should be on my full's if they don't hold a suspension of licence for not paying bills over a yr ago. Looking at a c50 but if all fails I guess I may have to hold on to my gv or upgrade to a 650.
