Back on track 250!!!

Ok, I've been itching to get back on lightweight track bike after selling my last Ninjette. Their seasons are reversed here due to heat, so off-time is actually summer (over 40 consecutive days > 100F !!! ). New CVMA season starts soon with only couple of trackday practices beforehand.

So I got one of these!!!

There's nothing quite like a 2-stroke!

Yeah! I thought Ninja 250 handled better than previous RZ350 I had, though down on power. This NSR250 SP version with MagTek wheels ends up about 60-lbs lighter than Ninjette with double power! Wow!!! Gonna be so much fun!

This article made me drool for one over decade ago!

There are quite a few of the more exotic 2-strokes like that, that show up at the annual 2-stroke meet at Deals Gap, NC each spring. Last year we had a nice TZ750. If you're in the area...

If you're flying in for a visit and don't have a 2-stroke with you, any vehicle is welcome.
