    Would be a good thing at Loudon to replace Shitty Mcbikefest, they have about the same HP (the new 250 and the old 500's)

    I dunno, they let the 250s switch up the exhaust, air filter... it's going to be an ongoing arms race to see who can spend the most on filters and exhaust I tell ya!

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    Dave, you better go reserve your bike now!!!

    p.s. these 250s have the same old motor as far as I know. Nothing exciting happening under the new skin...

    Big news is 17" wheels and better brakes.

    I'd need one bike for each cheek!

    i think this is a great way to get more entry level racers on the track more safely ... it is an affordable new bike that has nice styling, etc;.

    I'd run one

    two dimensional terror nice.

    If I work my ass off I could probably get back down to 140. That's about where I was as a Frosh in College during Soccer Season... I'm at 165-170 now

    I'd run it! I wonder how competitive they would be in prod twins? I don't think they would make another class just for them at lrrs. Still sounds like fun though.

    You're all bike snobs. Oooh, look at the new EX250, it's so pretty! It must be good! Yay EX250, booo EX500!

    Take away all the fancy new fairings and it's the same old EX250. A bike which is inferior to the EX500 in every way that would make a difference on a racetrack. Everyone bitches about how our bikes are deathtraps on the track, but you want to race *that* thing? Ha.

    Not to mention they were a bitch to work on before and all that newfangled plastic is not going to make it any better. Look at the MSRP. Guarantee you they've cut every corner on that bike to keep the price down, even worse than the old one.

    But yeah, I'd race it.
