05 CRF 150f or 2002 RM85

Recommended Posts

This is not about what is faster or better, but which bike is best for my situation. I don't really care which one would win in a race.

My 12 year old son has about 20 hours of experience on a KX65 that he has outgrown. He is now 5'4" 115lbs. I just traded the KX65 for a RM85, but have a friend who wants to race so he would like to trade his 05 CRF150f (216 wet) for my RM 85 (160 wet). My son will be doing some but very little track riding, no racing, mostly desert riding in California. However, I want him to be able to become a good rider. Which bike would be best between the two. I know they are completely different, but currently my son has a 4 stroke personality. Any opinion would help.

If it wasn't for the weight I think this would be a no-brainer.

If your son crashed in the desert when he was tired at the end of the day is the 150 going to be a problem?
