old guy from Las Vegas

Old guy, cancer survivor, disabled veteran, decided I needed to treat myself to a new toy as therapy. Bought a 06 xv250 two days ago and I love it. Looks=10, Sound=10, Power=6, (needs gearing change I think)fast up till 45-50 and then kinda fades quick. I have rode off and on since the 60s and this is one of the "fun-er" bikes I have had. Nice forum, lots of info here.

Sugar Bear says Welcome! Been ridin since early 60's too non stop, don't worry, we AIN'T old. A small bike is total fun, easy to handle and you get the wind in your face, and total freedom, I look at it as total therapy Sure works for me. A 250 ain't really gonna scream much past 50 or so, as you said, but have fun and Ride Safe.

Ride Safe, Live Long
