Is a 250F too big for me

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about maybe trading my ATV for a dirtbike, I am 130lbs and 5"6'. I have a KDX 200 a few years ago and found it tall but manageable. I usually prefer 2-strokes but think a 250 might be too much and I am not sure about a 125's power band for trails

Current ride: 1986 TRX250R with lots of mods.

Have owned: 1981 ATC250R with lots of mods, 1983 200X, 1986 250SX, 1991 KDX200

Go for it.

You're an inch taller than me and 20 pounds lighter.

I have two dirt bikes:

 

A 2002 Yamaha WR-250F for riding away from home, and a 2013 TTR125LE for riding at home.

Over the last 33 years, I've had too many full-sized dirt bikes to list.

Welcome to the club.

Connecticut = Rocks in the ground.

That's where all of these old stone walls out here came from.

 

What you're asking has been done by lots of guys your size on similar terrain for decades.

It will just come down to whether or not YOU want to do it.
