For safety reasons, there's been a lot of discussion lately about forcing new motorcycle riders to learn on a smaller bike. New riders are generally encouraged towards bikes like the Honda Rebel, the Ninja 250, or the hot new Honda CBR-125 (not yet available in the US). Learning to ride on a big bike can be very dangerous, often with tragic results. Well I have an idea! What about a DL 250 V-Strom? The V-Strom 650 and 1000's are great bikes, so why not make a smaller one for beginners? I personally think it's a great idea. (Are you listening Suzuki?) If Suzuki ever makes this happen, remember that you read it here first!
