Yeah that's right no denying that but that's the rider my point is its not that the 250 would spank the big bikes if they were equal riders the 250 wouldn't stand a chance

The fact is that most people may be able to "master" a 250 than 600-1000cc. I am sure if this guy was given a few laps on a 600-1000cc would do better than the others "naturally".

It is just that everyone just talks hype (trash) about "pwning" a 250 or why get one. Everyone has their reasons for owning a 250 and possibly "upgrading" to a bigger bike later or keeping the bike.

Example: I am going to be getting my first bike soon a Ninja 300.
Reasons: #1. I am 100% new to riding and I am taking the MSF first before purchase. #2. I am a conservative guy, first car was a Geo Metro and I loved that car and I would trade in my current car to have it back. #3. I do plan on riding with friends that do ride 600s and above but this group has Cruisers and other non SS type bikes. We all still have fun. Some "speed" others "stunt" while the casual riders watch, ride, and enjoy. #4. 300 hit the right spot for me. Not to HOT not too COLD for my needs.

We all get a bike to have a bike. Get one for yourself. Not what others want for you to have. Notice how 250 riders don't think they are superior than +600cc riders or even scooters. Have RESPECT to other RIDERS and their BIKES. Wave at each other, chat about bike stuff, respect other opinions and choices.

That is some awesome riding. I stepped down from a 600 to a 250 on the track and it has been fun. First time out was a wake up call but the 250 really helps me slow down and work on technique.

>>>Agree...

>>>I was originally going to ride a 250 but it was physically too small for me, the 400R was a good fit...

Yo defeated husband I know you said it wasn't aimed at anyone but I kind of think its aimed at me and just to clarify things here you have got me wrong I do have total respect for all bikers and I couldn't agree with you more about get a bike you want not what others say I too used to have a 250 an rgv250 and it was great fun I loved it at the time this was many moons ago I don't feel I'm superior in any way just cos I ride a 1000 and I'm not slagging 250s off either I just get annoyed when people say that they would beat bigger bikes and I was just making a point about the fact that they can't I don't mean to offend anyone in any way as you say we're all bikers and we all have the same interests its just if you ride a 250 then that's great I actually think they look lovely but don't put things up saying that they would beat 6 or 10s cos that's rediculous so if I've offended anyone I apologise to you all happy riding lads:-)

I know that it has your post as a quote, but I only hit Quick Reply so it quoted your reply.

It wasn't aimed at you, I say again. I did post this as a reply on a post but it was made in general to all the guys on this and other forums that knock on the little banger.

Sorry but there is a lot of claimed "squids" (I am new at riding myself but not classified under squid definition yet and hope not be in that category) and even veterans that have forgotten their roots or the Motorcycle roots in general. The other day I read a post on another forum of a "54 year old" claiming that no one should be riding a bike unless it is at least 1000cc for fear that you wouldn't "look cool".... a "54 year old".

But the reference to beating other bikes that are bigger. In which I never stated. I only said that the Larger Bike Owners tend to say they would beat 250s hands down. But obviously these are the "squids" talking not typical mature owners that took years to develop pure riding skills for track made bikes. Sorry if that sounds sarcastic but it is not.

This video is only only one guy that has proven he could. Do we "know" his skill level or the other larger bikes skill levels, no. But saying that a 250 can't beat larger ones is not a fact when this video exists. That is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I have watched 100-175cc (custom) scooters beat out 250 and 600 bikes. The track is what made the difference (short curvy track). Yes, Dyno stats prove that lager bikes should always dominate. But do they on the track? Depends again on the track and what rider is on its top side. Would slicks on a 250 and hard rubber on a 1000 make a difference too? Ton of factors involved here but this is all "What If".

I have respect for all bikers and bike cc ranges. You an I both do not knock on large, small or even motorcycles cousins. Keep rubber side down, oh and still on the bike.
**Again if this auto quotes people sorry, it's a quick reply**
