Hell, the Triumph and the BMW feels even lighter the 250s considering how well the weight is distributed around the chassis. As long as I respect the throttle, I am think will be more than ok on those bikes, considering I will be able stop much better and shorter than an old beater if the needs ever arise.
Alright, in the end it's your decision ofcourse. Regardless of what bike you decide to get, wear adequate gear. Do I need to go through what I mean by that?
