Looking to start off road riding
« on: March 19, 2019, 10:48:50 PM »
Hi all,

I'm looking to get into riding a dual sport.  Many years ago (early to mid 90's) I used to do some off road riding and loved it.  I have a street bike but it's time to get a second bike and find the trails around here.  Currently I'm looking at purchasing either a CRF250L Rally or a WR250.  I will have my new bike hopefully in the next couple months.

Welcome Christy!

There's a nice crf230f on CL in Rapid City

Just fyi

On second thought, I'm not sure the "f" model is a ready to go "dual-sport."

Raven - you might want to pm SturgisChick.  Last I knew she was looking to sell her XT250 or XT225.   Donít know what she still has around

Update: I bought a new '18 WR250 a couple months ago.  I've only had a chance to ride it a couple times so far and only one time on dirt.  I'm hoping to find some easy trails this weekend as it sounds like they are open now.
