Yesterday was my first real singletrack ride on the Honda. The bike has stock gearing, stock suspension, stock pipe, stock carb (with leaner jetting) etc.... I raced a Husky last year in harescrambles & assumed that the Husky would be better off road than a stock Honda mxer. In my first real woods ride on the Honda, I was turning faster laps than I ever did on the Husky! I don't see many of the '02-07 CR250R's in the woods - why not? That is a SWEET woods bike!!!
