  1. I found a Honda service manual for my X on eBay. Still in the plastic wrap.
  2. I do! Just put Guts Racing soft seat foam on my X a few weeks ago. Have stock foam just hanging out in the garage.
  3. Before this morning, the Honda website said the same thing about the 450X. I’d bet they’ll release a 250X next year. Honda waited a year after the 450RX to release the 250RX.
  4. Could you rent a storage unit?
  5. The only ridiculously annoying thing that’s happened to us is two guys walked over to our truck and asked if they could share the pavilion we were using. No problem, it’s just two guys. Well. It wasn’t just two guys. Four trucks loaded with bikes and ATVs came rolling in next to us with about 20 people. The final straw was when their children climbed into the bed of OUR TRUCK and started horsing around. We decided to call it a day at that point. It was like the two original guys deliberately hid the rest of their hoard when they came over to ask to share the pavilion.

    A step up to a bigger bike for me from a CRF150RB. Love it. I've done all of the CCC mods except adding an R cam. I am 5'7" and have gotten used to the seat height. The seat height will occasionally bother me when I am tired from riding or stalling on a hill.

  7. I had a 2007 a few years ago. The choke cable mounted to the triple clamp/handlebars behind the number plate.
  8. I am about your size and only 9 years younger and I went from a CRF150RB to a CRF250X. The height difference was a non-issue for me and actually made me feel more comfortable riding. I didn’t feel like I had to hunch over when standing. The extra weight was the most challenging and I needed my husband’s help a few times, but I can pick it up on my own now. Mostly. If I tip it over on the trail when I’m tired, it might just sit there a minute while I catch my breath if it’s not a busy trail!
  9. I like the terrain a bit better at Barnwell. The facilities are nicer too. There are showers you can use after riding. They've got concession stand and TVs in the pavilion. Delicious burgers. We've only been to RRMT once and it was my first time out on my 250x so I was still getting used to the height. The staff at RRMT didn't seem as friendly as Barnwell. I've just had a better time at Barnwell must going to RRMT now I might like it a little better.
  10. Yeah we went up to Red River this past February or March, can't remember which now. It was cool because of the history of the place but I prefer Barnwell. Oh, don't forget you'll need an OHV sticker. They sell them at the front gate.
  11. It's rocky red sand...not really large rocks to navigate unless you end up on a 4x4 trail and not a lot of deep sand either. There is plenty of dirt lol. Gets pretty dusty when it's dry.
  12. It takes rain very well. It is mainly rocky sand and drains great. There may be water holes but they aren't sticky muddy. Barnwell only closes when the roads to get there are impassable. Hurricane Harvey might dump a lot of rain, so you may call ahead to make sure the road isn't flooded.
  13. Hey that's my video! Cool! It is easy to get around out there once you get your bearings. Follow the blue and yellow trail markings. Blue is the beginners loop and yellow is the dirt bike only trail. Blue and yellow are often the same in places then break off. My husband and I try to go up there every so often to ride. If we happen to go on the same weekend, we'd be glad to show you around.
  14. I am a 5'6" wife and I ride a stock height CRF250X without any problems. I have been riding dirt for about 20 years, have had an MX80, RT100, TTR125, RM100, CRF150R Expert over those years. The height of the 250X has made me more comfortable standing up while riding. As a female rider with experience with other bikes, I'd recommend the 250X or similar.
