    Hi,

    Have been riding on the road for a few years. Been interested in getting into riding trails and enduro for a while now. Bought a Drz a while back to get me started on some trails, a tad too heavy for most technical stuff, still a blast to ride though.

    Recently acquired a Cr250, which is great fun, but a handful to manage with the sort of riding I want to do, without detuning.

    Looking to pick up a newer 250 2t or 350/450 exc-f, open to suggestions

    Very keen to get out there on one of the group rides, they look like good fun!

    WELCOME ALEX 350 IS MUCH BETTER THAN THE 250 AND IF YOUR BIG AND HEAVY LIKE ME THE 450 IS THE BIKE YOU NEED LEAVE THE 250 ALONE UNDER POWERED HEY THATS JUST MY OPINION LIKE

    Hi keith,

    I have decided on a two stroke 250, I quite fancy the husky te250 or ktm 250.

    Hi Alex & welcome. 300 is an awesome bike, 250 2t is easier to ride, need to ride both to see what I mean, but we're blokes so we'll always do what is not always right, if that makes sense.

    Hi Alex, I have 250f & ordered a 280 big bore kit, as Keith says it can feel under powered, I rode Taffy's new 350f & it was awesome bike, which is what I will aim for next year most probs. & welcome.
