Clean title, and new enduro tires.  Sounds solid to me.

That seems about what you'd expect for Honda.

The Honda is a much better bike in third gear than it is in second or first–that is to say, it works best on terrain that would put you in their gear. Above 20 mph and the bike is awesome. It’s the king of fireroads, but it’s not something you would want to ride in a GNCC.

This isn't a KTM or even a serious competitor to one. 

It's a great improvment over their prior dual sport jokes,b ut still way short.

The Gas Gas bikes look cool.  I know not everyone likes them, but I am all for the electric future.  Bring it on!

Also the TMs are nice bikes.   But as long as you can only get parts made of Unobtanium that come from The Seychelles on the fourth Wednesday of January it's not worth buying one.

CRF250R - Race
CRF250X - Cross Country
CRF250L - Legal (street legal)
CRF250F - Family, fun, fucking slow (one of those)

But I think the F is Family.

It was not muddy at all, it was AWESOME.  Course had a few bad spots but that happens every year.

Some of the best years of that race have been (from memory): 2007, 2008, 2016.  I would put this year up right up there with those.  Great weather, course was awesome, very little mud.  The guys are pros at avoiding the stuff that gets real bad. 

I worked sweep and had a fun time.  I will probably race again next year though as long as the weather is good.

I spotted that one too.  And then when I saw it was the same importer as Pitster Pro I noped out. 

I agree that resale is basically zero.  Parts are probably a non issue, you can probably just fit parts for whatever bike they stole the design from :)

That review says what the others do:  It's good, really good, for Honda.  But it still doesn't really compete with KTM.

It's great for Honda.  HAHAHA. 

You can thank Kalifornia for all this shit.  Charcoal canister, air injection, catalytic convertor.  LOL.  Garbage.

That is the bad neighborhood where most of the street riding goes on too. 

A buddy of mine has a harbor freight unit hes going to sell me for 150. 

Do you guys bolt your wheel chock right to the plywood?

Good call, and yes that is how I have mine set up

That bri mar trailer looks nice.  Disappointed in the used trailer market.  Lots of crap.  Wish i had my old job and its access to fab. equipment.

Yeah I agree with that.  Lots of, even mostly, junk for sale.  Was that way last time I bought one also.

I eventually found a fully assembled, used, brand new HF trailer for like $200 though.

I wonder what the range on it is.  For road use it would probably be awesome though.  Emissions are zero and the throttle position should be consistent on the road so the rnage is probably good.

I am probably going to switch to hitch carry soon.  Just seems easier. 

However I'm worried I'm going to end up with a handlebar in the rear window :)  Once I get over that fear, I will get it.
