A good buddy of mine has been trying to decide on a new 2006 CRF250 or CRF450. He's metting rid of an 04 CRF250. He also owns a CR250 2 smoke for woods racing Vet-A class. The 4-stoke is for mainly moto. He weighs 200+. I tell him 450 all the way. Another friend says 250 will make him a better rider go that route. I think if he gets the 250 I'll own him on my new YZ450F. I told him to get the Yamaha also but that's another story. Anybody have an opinion left on this subject? Thanks, I enjoy reading this forum and look forward to responses.
