I rode my very first 250F ( '06 KXF) the other day at RMC. WOW, what a difference. I couldn't believe the difference in the way the steering felt (much lighter). If it wasn't for the fact that my corner speed is so slow (I need every bit of horsepower I can to clear obstacles), I'd own one. If I had the money Open Class does, I'd own both. Is it me or do others feel the difference?
