CRM250. TY WavyDavy\nNot as quick or as evil as I thought it would be, but fun all the same. I\ncan see it being an ideal off-roader on a fast trails, but crap on the\nnadgery bits. It wheelied Ok, even if my attempts were a bit crap, but in\nmy defence, it's been ages since I seriously tried to wheelie a bike, and\nI'd only been on it for 2 minutes. I really couldn't see me buying one if\nI was in the market for a traiie, I'd have another XR400R instead as I\nfound that easier to ride.\n\nZXR400. TY PowerGrainger\nI was coerced into riding this one, and it's fun. Very stable and handles\nlike it's on rails. It's got a gem of an engine that unfortunately is\ntotally gutless, but I do ride a ZZR11 myself and this bike is restricted\nto 33bhp on a weird throttle stop thingy, which gives about 10 deg of\nthrottle movement. It does wheelie Champ, but it takes alot of revs and a\nlot of clutching to do so, and the results aren't exactly spaectacular.\nIt should be a real jewel of a bike when the restriction is taken off.\nI'd love one for attacking back roads on, it'd make a worthy replacement\nfor something like 350LC.\n\nVTR1000F Firestorm. TY Spete.\nEngine 100% lovely, makes all the right noises and produces adequate\npower to loft the front wheel in 1st and 2nd on the throttle. Handling\n70%, way too hard at the rear and forks are typical VTR i.e lock up when\nbraking hard, which leads me nicely into the brakes. Brakes 20%, fucking\nhorrible and a liability. Spete did warn me that they were not very good,\nso i took a handful of lever just up the road to be confronted with a\npulse that moved the lever about 8mm in and out. That is a seriously\nwarped disc and the pads have no bite or feel in them. Tbh the brakes\nstopped me from having any *real* fun, so I can't make objective comments\nabout things I'd normally try. I tried the VTR because I'd owned one new\nin 1997 and loved it and wanted to take a trip down memory lane. I can't\nsay I'd buy another one now though.\n\n\n-\-\nLozzo\n'95 Kawasaki ZZR1100D, '97 Kawasaki GPZ500S, '83 Honda CB250RS\nBig Zed Little Zed Dead shed\nNew to ukrm? : [URL="http://www.ukrm.net/faq/ukrmscbt.html"]www.ukrm.net/faq/ukrmscbt.html[/URL]\n"He's like a child, only not as clever"
