Something followed me home from the dealership.
Just got my new 2016 Versys LT home from the dealer, beating the forecasted week of rain, then raced back to pick up this steal-of-a-deal for my girlfriend to begin learning on. It's a 2011 Suzuki TU 250X, only had 800 miles on it, and got it for $2k. It's a bit small and underpowered for me, but I have to admit it was fun riding it home like a madman trying to beat the rains. She will use it to practice to retake the riding test (didn't quite pass the MSF course last weekend), and then she plans to trade it in on something larger. But it was so cheap and it's kind of fun to ride, so I'm thinking about keeping it permanently. I have a 14 year old son that is chomping at the bit to begin riding, I think this would be a perfect training bike for him.
