I'm just another young'n joining the forums out of whims and dreams, as I have yet to even ride an EX250 yet alone own one. I come from an enduro background, and my current riders are a 75' Suzuki TS185 (currently sporting a sand paddle, hooks up will in the Michigan snow!) and a 77' Honda CT125. Neither of which are in the best of nick cosmetically, but they are riders ridden hard, I can't complain! Now, on to why I have joined this forum with out any hard experiences on an EX250. Well, for one, the numbers work. ~50 MPG, stylish, reliable and really, very affordable. So in a nut shell, I (plan) on buying one in the very near future, so why not learn from current owners and drool over their rides during my wait? Anyways, I look forward to doing lots of learning, and yearning, during my time here.
