Thanks for the post and it is really funny that you went through the same thing that I am going through now. I’m still doing my research on as many bikes as possible, because I want to make sure that I fit on the bike. I failed to mention in the beginning of this post that I’m 6’0 and running about 225 right now. So, it seems like a larger bike would be the better decision for me because of my size. But after reading so many posts of people the same size and sometimes larger (not many)… and how they are getting the bikes that I’m having a harder decision on.
I think that I am going to have to take my sweet time and sit on as many bikes as possible… but the Kawi 250R is 1 sweet looking bike. I was looking at the Enduro Series of BMW… as well as the smaller version of the cruising bikes as well… If only I was rich!! HA
