Nice ride Zed. :)

 

Amazing how much the 250 market has changed since I was a young devil looking for the most powerful 250 in existence. In my time the RGV was the go if you wanted a suicidal amount of 'L' plate legal power, however I never liked the 2 stoke engine so went for a CBR250RR - it was pretty sporty for a 250 and sounded like an F1 car with a yoshi pipe on it.

 

Nowadays the 2 strokes are gone, and brand new 250's sell for $6000 (e.g. current CBR250's). You can even get a 125 in Repsol colours for $4000 brand new ride away! Suzuki and Yamaha seemed to have dropped out of the 250 market, possibly due to the lift on the 250cc restrictions for L/P platers, leaving it all to Honda and Kawasaki.

 

I have a Suzuki myself, they make a very nice bike.

Not my car, but same model & colour (pretty much) as my first car when I was 17. The mighty Datsun 120Y (colour according to my Uncle was "baby poo" yellow)

Sure they were rather crappy and used more oil than petrol... but you'd chuck some brand new retread tyres on them for about $40 a piece, and god forbid the engine crapped itself you'd get yourself a rebuilt motor for about $500 + fitting.

 

And unlike the the bottom of the market $10K new cars, I could still accelerate in this thing to 100km/hr while getting onto the freeway... people who merge on to the freeway at 60km/hr in new cars drive me insane :realmad:

aaaahhhh the old dato 120y. when my oldest bro and i raced at speedway, one of the classes we raced was compact speedcars. we had a dato 120y motor with a 1400cc dato head on it and double spring the valves, and me and my other brother designed/built a transistoried ignition system for it and it reved it its tits off, 14,000 revs not a problem.we polished every friggin thing in that motor by hand.lot of work.payed off.in the queensland titles we would consistantly finish in the top 10, usually around 6 or 7th place out of a field of 40 cars.for us to come close to being number 1 we would have had to beat allan streader and man his car was like a rocket ship.allan is a top bloke, we learnt a lot from him, realy nice guy to talk to:cool:

Sold this in 2010... Times and laws have changed and it would only have been a matter of time before I got done on the F3. Before this R1 99 model, before that ZX9RB2, before that VT250 spada, before that CB250 and currently an ER500 with 150,000ks on the clock.. Have to say the Kawas are the best bikes I have ever owned.
