Question Just like a man!!!! Changed my mind!

     

Well I could not delete the other post. Sorry for posting twice!
On my latest (10th) visit to the dealer I really liked the CRF250 allot. Tough choice between the XR250 and CRF 250.
I know they are for two diff. things,...or at least I think I know... That is where you guys come in! Like I said I will have a small track on my property with small jumps and lots of turns. (I like turns) other than that I will be riding trails or woods (no set trails) and a trip here and there to the "leagle" places in NC. There is an MX track not 5 min from my house. Now I have not done MX riding for many years... So is the CRF something I should consider? Or just stick with the XR?
Sorry so long.
THANKS!!!
Steve

If you want to start riding mx, dont even bother with the XR. It is a dinosaur meant for trails only. The CRF can mx well, and can crossover to trail duty if needed.

I will probably be down at archers lodge this weekend riding, you can come watch!

If you have the money, maybe you might want to go for the CRF250X, which is the off-road version of the CRF250R. It's not out yet, but it's coming soon. It would still work on the track, but would also be set up for off-road!

I'm with MXracer250F on this one. You sound like the perfect candidate for the CRF_X.

Thumbs up DONE

Oops! Forgot to update you all!
I got the CRF 250 and love it. A bit tall but springs are breaking in and fit is getting there. Got the damn FLU 2 days after getting it so no real ride report to give you. I can say this though... It is fast! I am going to Buckelburys tomorrow and will report in next week.

Default Pic too large....sorry

The pics I have are too big. Resizing them makes them look crappy. I will have to take some new ones. She is real dirty now!
