2009 Yamaha XT250
By Joe(Owner), Feb. 27, 2009
What a fun little bike! This bike replaced a Suzuki DR650 and at first I was a little concerned that I may have made a mistake, but I do not think that anymore. Yes the 650 excelled on the freeway but the 250 will still maintain legal freeway speeds (even up hills) so unless one does a lot of freewa... Read Full Review

Great bike, but beware
By Sue(Owner), May. 14, 2009
We have had this bike about a month now. Peppy little bike, that is fun to ride, light weight makes it easy to handle. Bad part is the Cheng Shin tires. They make the bike have a terrible wobble... sadly, at our expense we had to replace these tires. In looking around, MANY others have had the sa... Read Full Review
