Banshee vs 250r

Well a few month back I rode a 250r for the first time. It was an 86' with a pipe. I was really impressed with how well they handle and how goos the suspension is. I love how light they are and the power comes on nice and smooth. I am used to riding a banshee and even wiht a -2" swingarm it doesn't hook up very well in the dirt. The 250r stays straight easier and pulls hard through the corners while my banshee spins and gets sideways. Also the stock 250r suspension seems really nice even just as nice as my aftermarket suspension. I think the weight and geometry of the bike help out alot. My banshee is a blast to ride but I hope to pick up a 250r the really put down the 450's

Yeah it's her blaster. It is for sale 00, but it is supposed to be gone tomorrow. She is gonna get another bike, probaly a 450. She can outride her blaster so she need a bigger bike with better suspension and more power. She might get a 250r but probaly a 450 becuase she can get a brand new one. She bought the blaster because she is only 5'2 and 105lbs. She is full grown also at 23yrs. If I knew she was gonna be this in to it we would have bought her a 450.

badass pic lol $2400 for a blaster i remember back a few years ago i seen one on the floor for $2300. my g/f is looking for a bike she will most likly give you $1500.
