Member Info: My current bike is a HONDA CBX250. Started my biking experience 13 years ago with a HONDA MTB80 which teached me road manners. So why do I bike? For the fuel economy and zippyness. I bought my current bike for commuting purposes to Campus (Stellenbosch University). But I am planning to take a 3 day trip along the beautiful West Coast of SOUTH AFRICA, so watch this space for some PICS of me bike and my SOUTH AFRICA! FIFA Soccer World Cup host 2010!!!

Info: Bike is fairly standard. Thus far I have replaced the manufacturer''s exhaust pipe and replaced it with a Scorch Stainless Steel Pipe. Besides the lightness and performance, this particular pipe gives this 250cc a far better sound. Not planning to do any more on this bike.

Info: Was a nice bike to commute with. KYMCO''s gearboxes are however a problem, elusive neutral and crunchy gearbox. Overall a good bike to start with. Top speed about 90 Km/h, but the engine screams like hell, not made for that speed. If you like cruisin'' at 70 km/h (40 mph), then go for it. This bike doesn''t like slopes or hills, 35 km/h is the top speed what you''ll get with a rider of 70 Kg. An
