If everybody rode your bike, and dressed just like you it would be a very boring motorcycle world.
that's a sexy 250.
Damn, quick rip, just goes to show you don't need a 1k to be fast.
that's a very nice 250
Nope u don't need a 1000 to be fast...I remember schooling guys on much larger displacement bikes on my RD 350lc back in the day.
I am more than a mathematical equation, I am more than a chemical combination...
Thats a nice sound to wake up to. It would be a fun bike to own

If only we had riders that would actually pay for that kind of bike here in Canada. 250 Ninjas are great bikes, but four cylinder sportbikes sound sooooooooooooooo much better than parallel twins/singles.
Cool bike, but that's a little agro for a technical public road.
I miss my FZR 250... But damn that guy knows how to ride the bike.
Same 4 cylinder configuration
Same 4 values per cylinder
Same 19000 redline.... sweet sweet music.
If that's Mount Glorious, I can proudly lay claim to having riddin it, not nearly as quick though!!
Stayed with friends at one end of the run and they said it's common place in good weather to have 2-4 accidents a day up there lol
I would love go back on a small bike in good weather!!!
aww sweet bike but as most know its not the bike thats fast
thanks Grey Man - that might be the most stimulating video of open-road riding I've ever enjoyed, 'cept for Isle of Man. the dude is riding HARD, eh? obviously done this run a bunch of times, and has high skills, but even then, he runs wide a few times... near the limit...
I love how the road gets rougher later in the run, and the little CBR just eats it up, doesn't get unsettled, holds a sharp line. man, I'd like to ride one of those 'in anger'.
turns out a good buddy of mine came from just near the Mangamuka, and rode it lots (not this fast). he mentioned I needed to take note of the camber - always postive for the turns, so the local engineers really DO do a good job.
I asked if the police in NZ were somewhat tolerant of these shenanigans - he replied they just throw you in jail! if they can catch you! life is so simple...
Ride fast if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime.
