Look I am 51 years old now and have had many many bikes over the years. My two current dirt bikes are a 08 Husky CR125 and a 09 Husky TXC 510. I mostly ride MX but do some trail riding for fun also. My 125 is my favorite all time bike. I can do anything with it including ride in the sand as we did this past weekend at Busco Beach in NC. I am no light weight at 200 lbs and the Husky has no problem pulling me around at a very quick pace. A friend has a 95 CR 250 Honda and had it at the MX track with us and he was turning in faster lap times on my 125 Husky. Of course the CR250 has more power everywhere but you can keep pace with the 125 and have a ball doing so. I hear some guys say "get a 250 you will get bored with a 125". I just don't happen to be one of them. Learn on a 125 and when you can master it WOT everywhere just keep on riding it's a blast. Good luck and don't worry about your English.
if you don't want to upgrade and like to ride in sand go the for the 250 if its like new
go which is in good condition but if you really are going to be riding in the dunes a lot definitely go the 250
have you ever rode a bigger bike like a Cr 250 because they pack a punch especially if your coming from 125 Chinese bike, but if you be careful and ride responsibly for the first couple ride you'll be fine
what type of skill level do you rate yourself as
because if youre a beginner a 250 2 stroke aint the best bike to learn on
Thanks men, good point there.
I don´t really know what to do right now...
The 250 is like as new, it`s from a friend.
A 125 I would try to look at good one, thats not easy.
Well... I can´t rate my riding skill, I know that the 250 has a lot of power.
I`m used to ride in sand, once a year I went 15 days or so to the sand. It`s my favorite surface, here the sand is really soft.
But the rest of the year, I will use it in a mx track or trails...
I can´t decide:bonk:
Thanks to all for the opinions!
PS: If I buy a 125 I couldn´t bought paddled tires for the sand. Those tires are a mith here:smirk:
