I really need a big bike. I've ridden my dad's '06 soft tail deluxe around as well as my uncle's cbr 1000f so i'm actually fairly accustomed to 1000+cc bikes. And i'm a pretty big guy (6'1" 265). I've been dieing to get my own liter bike for years now. :mfclapWhew, doggy! A 250 to a 10. But be mindful, the ex250 is probably running about 28 bhp and 18 lb-ft of torque. The mighty 10 is rolling close to 170 bhp and 85 lb-ft of torque.
