I looking for a bike before next Wednesday something along the lines of a tt-r125, tt-r250, XT225, KLX140L, CFR150F.   I would prefer it be something in pretty decent condition since my nephew will be here next Wednesday and I don't have time for anything more than minor repairs.

Well the search has ended.  I learned today that my 13 year old nephew is a little larger than I thought at 5'11" and 170 lbs so the bikes I was looking for would be a little small.  With little hope of finding anything, I walked into a local dealership this morning and found a very clean used Honda CRF230F.  This bike should be tame enough for a beginner to learn to ride and still enough fun that I can load a set of tires up with ice screws and go play on the frozen lakes with friends this winter.  Most of them like to ride tt-r 125s so I should be able to keep up with them despite my lack of ice riding skills.
