    Bike reviews: The real story

    IMO, it's nice to hear the "every day man" review of things. The professional racer reviews have their place, but the best insight one can get is from a plethora of average owners with various skill levels who keep their bikes as close to stock as possible. Take my video for example: If you watch/read enough of the average accounts of a certain machine, you'll be able to piece together the similarities and differences of opinion and come to a more solidified conclusion. I recently got to ride an '18 300rr, and I'll be eventually posting a "first ride impressions" video on it. It's a shitty imo video, but it's just another addition in the long run of videos on the same bike that might have that much more sway for someone who's looking to buy like I am. Just try not to go over the threshold with information overload, cuz it IS easy to do that with this type of thing[emoji111]

    Indiana Riders, where're you at ???

    Thanks man! Some private property in the northern part of the state. I think it was just south of the Warsaw area if I remember correctly. Some of the most gnarly stuff I've done to date, for sure.

    After riding this property, I don't find Indiana riding so lacking anymore.
  4. Nah, I'm going straight up to 200cc or larger 2 stroke. My list of potential bikes includes beta 200/250/300RR, YZ 250X, and GPX TSE250R. So far anyway.

    What to buy: Beta 200rr or ????

    No no, I realize theres a massive difference between the two. I'm just speculating the possibility that I may want a bit more down the road is all, cuz I have no clue. I've ridden 125s before and even they put the 230 to shame power wise.

    Lol, I'm on a crf, but potayto potahto[emoji16]. Yes, ultimately anything from 200-300cc is going to be an upgrade for me. I suppose it's not only about what will best suit my needs, but also what bike is going to stay with me for the longest run. I dont want to get a 200 and then 1 or 2 years later say, "meh, it's time for something with a bit more punch." I'm just hoping I get a chance to ride the bikes so I can make a more informed decision. I got time though, wont be pulling any triggers til next summer or so. Til then, I'm gonna pester everyone about the bikes I'm looking at, lol.

    Should I buy Honda crf 150f or crf 230?

    Thanks for watching! And I agree 100%. Searching for a nice 200-300cc 2 stroke atm, but like I said I ain't getting rid of this 230!
  11. If it weren't for the suspension on the potty trainer, I would've made my decision already. I'm sure its leagues ahead of my 230, but still not quite up to par from what I'm constantly hearing. I'm thinking 200-300RR (thinking 250 will be a great medium..) for my next bike, among a couple other candidates. Gonna wait and see what people say about the 200 once it comes out.

    See that's what I'm ultimately wondering about. 250 may be where it's at. Of course for someone like me who's never ridden the 300, I may be overthinking this one..
  14. Here's a couple vids from my channel. Check em out![emoji106]

    I'm 5'6" as well. At your weight and skill level though, I would say the 150 may be the best starter. But you are also correct to be concerned with outgrowing it quickly. If you were to stay consistent with riding, I'd have no doubt you could tame the 230. Had mine for 10 years so far. Check out the review I made, might help a bit.
