OK, I have an '06 CRF250X and a buddy that is really wanting to buy it. I love the bike, have done some mods, but am considering going to the "08 CRF250R if I sell the X. I am rarely on a track, 80% woods but fast trails. Not too much ultra technical. The weight savings and steering damper are very appealing. I have never needed a headlamp. Will I miss the magic button...oh yes, but I will get over it. Probably will go with Rekluse setup. I am 45, but in pretty good shape for an old man. Most of the guys I ride with are youger and on 2 bangers or moto x bikes and I have no problem keeping up. Am I making the right move? Oh, one more thing...that black is BAD!
