Hi all, new to the street game but have a fair amount of time on the dirt. I'm not going to lie I'm a little nervous on the road. Wrecking on dirt has got to be a goose down pillow compared to asphalt. Anyways I've been riding off and on since the age of 9. My father bought us a 450 honda foreman as a child and as much fun as that was I kept poking at him to let me ride the cr 250. About 11 years old thinking I was ready or just plain wore out from being asked he obliged. I was about 5' 2" and leaning it against a fence post to take off. Timing the clutch with my throttle and my kickoff from the post lol jesus... looking back I cant believe he let me ride it. I discovered freedom on that bike via a throttle. I also discovered what my dad meant we he said watch for the power band. And that armor all is not the best thing to put on a seat when your 120 lbs on a 250cc 2 stroke. Fast forward 32 years and I find myself looking for that freedom that rush and a short lived escape from the monotony of everyday life.
