Congrats. I'll wager that you'll have a lot of fun on it.

I decided I wanted to go with a fuel injected bike so as to not mess with carbs. Plus I'm already familiar with 2012+ Honda's, so everything already makes sense to me on it. Also 2WheelNut made a good point to me today, that if my daughter and I might be doing some dirt biking together, the 250 would be good for her to start out on for sure. Probably me as well.

And if I get hooked on it, it can become her bike and I can buy something with more cajones.

Guess I'm a Honda guy...
Congratulations. Enjoy it. If you actually ride it on dirt very much at all , you'll find dirt bikes very addicting.

Thanks. Trying to get there as quick as I can. Camping (no bike) this weekend and on call next, so it might be a bit before I can get it to a real dirt bike park.

Seems like TexPlex is only open Fri-Sun. I want to hit there and then out to Time2Ride next. Will be jumping bumps in the pasture til then I guess

Re: IF I were to get a dirt bike, what should I get?

Congratulations Jarrett,

The Honda CRF250L is a sweet bike; I almost bought one. Light, nimble, fuel injected and electric start. I am sure you will have a great time on it. There is alot of aftermarket for this model.

I decided to go with a Honda 250, but a 35 year old XL250R. I love this little bike and it will do all that I want it to.

See you on one of the local rides.....
