    i'd rather snuggle up with a talented man than donuts or chocolate :p

    [/QUOTE]There is no shame in an XT 250; we had two as (dis)courtesy bikes at the motorcycle shop I worked in. I got chased out of a few city construction sites while on work business.[/QUOTE]

    it was a great bike, but sadly, not legendary. i did ride again as soon as my knee had healed enough, but stopped again when i was about five months along with my twins, was finding it difficult to kick the bike over....now i only ride bikes with pedals.

    I was being crass, but you were too classy to respond.

    I'm sad at the lack of kickstart road bikes available. There is an art to starting a motor with a kickstart; much more satisfying than using the electric boot. It would cost a bomb to put a kickstart on my Pantah, but it can be done using Cagiva 650 Elephant parts. When I worked at the motorcycle shop in the '90s, the owner and head mechanic would line up and watch my (60 kg) efforts to kickstart the big bevels.
    One of my dearest friends rode her Honda CBX 250 single roadbike up to her final week of pregnancy, but with twins I'm surprised you lasted even to 5 months.
    I've had a motorcycle on the road for most of the last 20+ years but I consider myself a cyclist who rides motorcycles. My wife on the other hand is happiest with 100+ horsepower under her right hand.
    If it hasn't got wheels, it's not sport.
