Very nice

What Honda is that? I came very close to buying their new 250 a few weeks ago but decided to hold off for awhile.

That is a KLX 250S, Kawasaki it has a windscreen from an '08 KLR.
You should buy one

Oops, was put off by the red color. I had my eye on a KLX250S on CL but it was sold before I was ready. Then I got distracted by the shiny offering from Honda. Then I decided to pay off some bills before before getting a 3rd bike

Congrats. I checked out a '12 KLX250S, but decided the only thing it offered that my '93 XR250L doesn't is electric start. Plus the seats on the '93 is so much more comfortable than the new bikes.

My bad ass 250


Lots of extra goodies on there, though sadly no upgrades to the engine or suspension. Speaking of which, I was told the rear suspension "needs a shot of nitro". This make sense to anyone? Being mechanically inept I don't want to appear stupid at the dealer....or at least try to keep it to a minimum

is a nice looking KLX . They were suggesting "Nitrogen" for your shock. Air doesn't compress like nitrogen does.

Air is almost 80% nitrogen. Physics say there should not be a noticeable difference. Except in very specific applications. Most of the time nitrogen alone is used to avoid oxidation.
