    GN's go forever. and if it ever did breakdown, there's enough of them out there that bits wont be a hassle!

    Hmmm wee too lazy to make a new thread but your thoughts on a 1989 Kawasaki EL/ZL 250 with 47k on the clock, new tyres brakes wof/reg for 2900 ono ?

    go my daft logic of not wanting a new bike (gn250) so ill get one that costs just as much second hand

    other part of my daft logic was not wanting fairings of any description as i know ill drop the bugger so yeah its between this, some old sr250s or do the done thing and get a gn250 ( i like to be somewhat different which is why i havent just gone and gotten a gn250 already )

    Thumbs up CBR250

    I have had a 1988 CBR250 Hurricane for 2 years now and have not had a problem with it, I have been told this bikes engine is bullet proof.
    Fantastic bike and certainly fast enough for someone on a restricted.

    3 more months to go on my restricted then I can start looking for a bigger bike. Yippeeeeeeee
    Its all about having fun

    cb250
    would be a good learner bike, being a single cylinder it will be relatively tame (which is a good thing when you're learning)
    provided it's been treated well, it should get to 60,000km's before it needs anything major, but just bear in mind when making an offer on the price the km's are getting up there, and you could get a suzuki gn250 of this year for around $1500 with lower km's, so don't pay any more than $1800 for it from a dealer or $1500 from a private sale

    On the other hand, if you bid on a GN250, you´d get a GN250.....

    CB250s are fantastic bikes, if it is a good one, then it is worth it. High ks in only 6 years suggests that someone has used it regularly, and probably for longer trips. That is much better than lots of short trips not very often.
    But keep in mind Gamgee´s comments. I might go a bit higher than that, but not much....

    Thank you both! Yeah I don't really want a GN250

    yeah k's are a worry, good to have a price range. Think I'll leave it.
    Look around next year.
