    ktm xc-f or mx 250?

    Thanks to you who helped me get this far. So I want an mx bike I can ride in the woods. I really like the idea of the xc-f as it has e start and I am a female only 5'5". The down side is you can't lower the back end like w/other brands. My two concerns w/ the xc-f is the weight and will I be able to give it a handful out of corner before a jump and get the same amount of power as I did on my crf250r on the track? I wish one of the other guys like Honda would put e start on an mx bike. Any feedback is appreciated. Any girls out there have any advice?
  2. I owned an '05 Honda crf250r. A great bike that I had the suspension switched out for my female frame of 5'5" and 130 lbs. It was a great MX bike and a great step up from my first bike an '04 Honda crf230. I sold my 250 as I wasn't riding it and my boyfriend was into woods not mx. I regret selling it but it was too big for me in the woods! So he had a kx100 that I rode in the woods that was a perfect fit but it was depressing on the mx or gp track. Now the kx is being sold and I really want a big bike again to ride mx, woods and gp. What do I buy? I want a 250 four stroke again. I like the quick power on the throttle and feel that a 2 stroke you have to wind up to get the power. I am not too fast out of the corners but like to give it a handful to jump at the track. I know the pros and cons - a four stroke is heavier and harder to start but a two stroke is too touchy and I feel too difficult for me to ride but I like the idea of easier to start and lighter. Ideally I'd own two bikes: a TTR 125 for the woods and a 250 four stroke for the mx and gp but I really can only justify one bike. What bike???? I am leaning towards an RMZ250 since the seat height is the lowest of them all. I loved my Honda and my boyfriend wants me to get a yamaha. What is the best bike and is an '04 RMZ250 a bad choice as I think it was it's first year. What can I do to help me ride it in the woods? I know a softer suspension for my weight, shaving the seat and what else can anyone suggest to get it lower for the woods? Any other suggestions????

    Looking for girls to ride with...

    I've got a dirtbike and I'm looking for other women to ride with - mx or trail. I live in PDX/Vancouver and have an '05 CRF250R and access to ride a '92 KDX200.
