Thanks for your reply. I checked with my local Honda dealer today and can pick up a NEW 2012 CRF250X for 5999.00 out the door and get 2.99% financing for 36 months. Seems like a decent deal. Appreciate your input.
Been riding 3 wheelers and quads since I was 5. Have never ridden dirtbikes before, I am 46, 6 ft. 210 lbs. will be mostly trail riding. Will be riding 2-3 times a month. My son rides dirt bikes and I am wanting to make the switch over from quads to dirt bikes so I can ride with him. Wanting to buy a new 2012 model. Probably won't want to do any mods except exhaust...Would love to hear some thoughts or suggestions.
