    Moving up from an ex250 I got as a starter bike....
    Picked up a 97 yzf600 11,300 on the clock, paid 3200 for it. All black with a full yosh exhaust, new pilot sports. That thing is just a bucket of fun to drive around town. So much easier to ride and way more confidence inspiring. Scarey fast compared to my old bike.

    Very nice, I'm really looking forward to upgrading to a real bike, too. My 200cc scooter is fun and easy to drive, but I'm looking forward to getting a Suzuki V-Strom DL650 after I get the scoot all paid off and then either sell it or trade it in.
