    The dealers like to pad the (very small) profit margin of the 250 with ad on fees like assembly and well, just made up charges. Really though, there's no reason not to pick up a used one. New you're looking at probably 3500 out the door, taxes and fees included. Pick up a used one for probably 2000-2500 out of pocket. It's been the same bike for the last 17 years, so why bother with a brand new one?

    What happened to a 5-10 year old beginner bike? That's the perfect thing; you will be able to learn on it, learn basic maintenance, push it until you've hit the limits, and then sell it probably for what you paid.

    yeah, that's the general time frame i'm looking for. toward the end of my last post i said, "around 98-00"... i just went to the dealer to sit on it and the dealer is easily accessible.
