That's good to hear. I wondered when you said you ran off a ramp and crashed. Take it easy on the top speed runs though. You really should go to a local track for the high speed fun.

They have a neat clock in Tokyo. I saw it in the 1980s when I was there.

I like that touch screen Casio. I've had the metal and plastic cased ones, but never knew they made the touch screen version.

I like watches and that one is cool. I find a calculator watch is more useful for me though. The Casio I have is $18.79 at Walmart. Good luck with the sale though!

You did a lot of nice work to get that in shape again, congratulations!

I think it's known by now that our 250s don't have an ignition unit overheat problem in general. If the unit quits when it gets hot, something is wrong with it, and it's probably planning to quit...

It's not just an excellent first bike, although it's is that. I've been riding for 42 years, and my 250 is not sitting in the garage long between rides.

completely refusing to start doesn't really sound like valves, Chis. I'm wondering if the ignition unit is getting hot and quitting.

Jacob, get it to do it again, and be ready with a spare spark...

Hello Brett, it's good to meet you, and welcome to the board!

Try looking through the turn. Rather than right in front of you, look at the road where you're going to be finishing the turn. See if that helps.

It's not difficult except for the red lights, when you have to get off and push it fast enough to get into first gear without stalling. :)

A lot of vehicle owners have no idea what maintenance is, and it's worse now than it was when I was young, although it's always been bad.

I think you're overthinking this. You are aware of how shifting works and want to reduce clinks and bangs. As you get experience, you'll learn how to shift quickly and smoothly. A Ninja 250 has a...

This is not meant to pick on you in particular, Jay, but I believe so. I believe that it's up to the rider to determine if the motorcycle is safe to be ridden. After all, the owner didn't ask you...

It wasn't my first choice, but it was raining when I went to buy my 250. I negotiated a price and told the young owner that I needed to ride it before I closed the deal. He started to scrunch up...

I've ridden a 390 Duke on the Dragon, and it's an excellent match. I wish you the best of conditions, but unfortunately Friday afternoon at the Dragon is the weekend.

You should be fine just shifting, but if you're downshifting at a critical time like in a turn, it can be helpful to blip the throttle while the clutch is disengaged do avoid the risk of skidding the...

I'll be watching for the trip reports. In May, a weekend at the Dragon is useless for riding. I hope early October is better.

One of the things I like about my 250 is its use of regular gasoline. I'd hate to have to use premium just for a very small HP gain.

120 mph is about 104 knots. From the graph, the pitot pressure at 104 knots is about 0.49 inches of mercury.

One inch of mercury is 0.491 psi, so the ram pressure at 120 mph is 0.49 x 0.491 =...
