I just wanted to say, I love my 250F!!! It is an absolute blast to ride! The suspension is great, I can bog it and rev it to the moon! I can ride it all day without being too worn out, but it still has nearly all the power you could need. The starting drill is a non-issue, it is light, it handles like a dream, has a nice crisp exhaust note, and not to mention,just looks sweeeeeet! Of course, all of you already know this. I just wanted to share my feelings on being a proud owner of a baby F. Side note: I am 6'2" 225lb. and thought this bike might not be enough, I was wrong! Could this quite possibly be the perfect bike for the trails? :D Anyone else feeling this??????????????
