well i traded my car for a 2003 Ninja 250R... only had like 1,700 miles on it, runs like a champ. i'm already looking for an exhaust, leaning towards Muzzy. that stock exhaust gives me a headache, too high pitched. i think i'm gonna keep this bike for a while and later on when i can afford a b***** bike i'll turn this thing into a track bike. its definitely fun in the twisties. i just wish i could fit b***** tires/wheels on it, that back tire looks kind of goofy. the vibration in the handlebars at 65+ is also kind of annoying, my hands go numb after about 30 mins. heh.
