Hey, I've just had the Sachs to learn on basically; a light, reliable bike, nothing more. Nothing is wrong with it, just look for some more thrills (and in no small part, the look) in the shape of a sports bike. Naturally I always try and be different... so that outs alot of the 250 sportsbikes out there, and I really like the look for the 2-stroke NSR, but i've heard mixed reports of reliability - some say that they are ace and unbreakable with proper maintenence, others say they they are cheap malaysian trash not designed to last. Regardless, i like the damn things and am trying to justify to myself that it's worth it to upgrade from my little Sachs to a slightly less little Honda. Any thoughts?
