hello all, some of you may remember me. i was dead set on buying a 2006 YZ 450F but then decided to get a 4x4 quad instead while i like the quad and ride it lots, it sure didn't replace the thrill of riding dirt bikes, so i bought myself a cheap CR 250. and ugh, i regret it so much. now, becuase of the 2 stroke i'm basically afriad to ride any where but the track. you cannot ride this thing down any striaght trail or gravel road. on my YZ 250F i used to just hop on, take a spin past the track(my local track is really close) or rip to the gravel pits and spin a few laps of a single track trail i love, now, i don't ride. my CR has sat in the garage for 4 weeks now becuase i have no way to get it to the track, or the track is too wet. if the track was too wet and i had a Yamaha thumper i'd just ride to the pits and ride all day and be happy. now theres a YZ 450F for sale, good price and i know the who the owners were. so, instead of having a bike that i'm pretty sure is stuck to my garage floor its been there so long i could have been ripping around on the bike of my dreams for a meer 1500 bucks more....shame on me have fun on your YZ's boys, you have made the right choice by going with a four stroke, especially a yamaha 4 stroke.
