Who Says Small Bikes Can't Be Fast & Fun?

Guys,

While looking for something else, I stumbled across the video you're about to watch.  It features a guy on his Kawasaki Ninja 250 riding on the highway.  Though I'm not sure where it was shot, my guess is Canada.  Why?  One, because they drive on the right side of the road, not the left as is customary in other English speaking countries.  Two, the rider was an English country judging by the signs and his speech.  Three, the metric system is used.

Though the whole video is entertaining, the best shots are @ 6:42, when he gets crowded by a white pickup truck on the right, a big rig on the left, and a blue sedan in front.  At 6:57, once things clear up a bit, he blows by the blue sedan which made him slow down in the first place.

So who says small bikes can't be fast and/or fun?  Captain Capitalism owns a Ninja 250; if it's good enough for him, it can be good enough for many of us.  Enjoy!



 Wasn't that good?!  It's certainly better than most programming you'll find on the matriarchal TV!  Have a good day now...

In what English speaking countries besides the USA & Canada do they drive on the right side? I can't think of any...

250s are the absolute most fun. Small and quick, they can get into and out of trouble much faster.

Great video clip!

Great video. Made me feel I was out there myself.

I'd like something, even a motor scooter. But the big guys tell me the odds are good I'd go down at least once the first year. And, at my age, I'd rather not.

My bones are strong, like most 15 year old boys. But, if I did get hurt it could really mess me up bad. It takes longer to heal when you are older.

That is the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) in Burlington Ontario. He heads east to the Oakville line, then turns around and heads back. I have only small bikes, a VT500 Honda cruiser, a Yamaha RZ350 sport bike and a KLX250 dual purpose and have great fun of all types
