I've been lurking here long enough, thought it about time to start a wee thread on my bike/experience so far. After getting a rather sudden urge to ride and own a bike, I came to this forum, read, read then read some more and decided on a VTR250. And with what feels like a short amount of time, I got myself L's, a bike, my gear and passed Q-ride. The pride and joy (squid-mobil) 2005 VTR250, which, from what I can tell, was maintained very well by the PO. Once I find someone to ride with Ill grab some better pics. Just daily duties for the moment, but enjoying it more with every ride.
