That cycle news review was good! Being a new rider I am always interested in reading how other bikes in the same class pan out. I rode my buddies CRF250R and thought it would kill me. Hahahaha. WOW what a difference! I am not in a position where I can afford any downtime from injury and I find this bike just outstanding for everything I have done thus far.
I would recommend it to anyone that can stand over it and feel comfortable. It has certainly been an exciting new chapter of in my life.
