Hi everyone. I guess I'll start by introducing myself. I go by C.C. and I'm new to these forums. I'm hoping you all can help me make a decision on which bike I should get next.
I started riding about 2 1/2 years ago, when my husband introduced me to dirt bike riding. I still have my first bike, a CRF150F. I love the bike, but lately I feel like I need to move up. It started when I decided to try riding my husband's YZ250F....I loved it and now my bike seems WAY too boring. Sooo...I've been looking at all kinds of different bikes. My main questions are: I'm used to riding 4-strokes, would getting onto a 2-stroke...like maybe a 125...be more difficult for me? Also, I really like Hondas, but I've heard that the newer CRF250R's are WAY powerful....would it be too much for me to handle since I just started on a 250? I could always just go with the Yamaha since I know I can ride it, but since I haven't tried anything else, I don't know how to compare the different bikes' power, size, handling, etc.
I usually ride areas like Cal City, mostly all desert riding. I REALLY want to try riding track. I'm 5'5" and about 125. Sorry I wrote so much, but I could really use the advice. Thanks!
