First of all, just wanted to introduce myself to the forums. A friend of mine referred me here and said it was a good place to check out.
Soooo Last year, I bought a Ruckus because the wife was pregnant, and I wanted to cut costs by not having insurance/gas on my F150, and just having one car and a scooter. However, the scooter is waaaay to slow going up some of the hills we have around here in Kamloops (30kms n hour is not cool going uphill). So, I was thinking of selling the scoot, getting my license and picking up a better bike for running around town. I don't need a bike for the highway (and if I do it'll be rare and very short runs), I don't need a bike with a lot of power, what I want is a cheap on fuel, cheap to insure, bike I can go to work n back with. I've been looking at the smaller Honda cbr125. They can be had for 1500-2000 range but I'm worried that 125 might not be enough? I'm also interested in the Ninja250 but they seem really hard to find, and more generally more expensive. I'd be looking for a beginner's bike, around 2000 grand, nothing fancy. Opinions?
Here is a pic of my sexy slow Ruck.
