Bummer. If both were the same price or even close I would go with the 250r. They hold their value much better here anyway.

ya thats what i was thinkin. i offered a guy with a 310r my bike plus 500 bucks. conditional on if i can get it road legal or not. my bike is worth about 2800 and he has his listed for 3500 or trade for something.

i guess that would depend on if you're more into bikes or quads. me personally i've i had to let it go i would find another bike that's road legal but that's just me. as far as a 125 thay have they're place. i think they take too much to make a good woods bike. they will definatly scream but not good for bottom end. if you go with a bike and want to stay with a smoker a 250 is a good start. they have way more potential for woods and still have the top end.

i actually think i might just keep this. put a good pipe on it and maybe a few other things and do some fun trail riding. it fits me perfect and im really diggin the torque it has. i would have never expected this from a 2 stroke. a 125 would be good but i have heard that they ONLY have top end power. and a 250 would prolly be to big since im only like 5'6" lol.

I've riden both 125's and 250 two strokes. The 125 doesn't suit me at all. Hardly any low/mid power. The bike was very peaky. It was a newer KTM 125sx. I'm sure you could handle a 250 two stroke being only 5'6. Might have to lower it a little though lol.

ya i think ill just stick with this. i dont ride a ton and ive read that there good all aorund bikes, which is good cuz i ride alot of every terrain. plus its in amazing condition and there aparently very reliable. if i do sell it ill buy a nice 250r. but im gonna test this bike out for a while and see how i like it.

good choice. these are great bikes for trail riding. i think you'll enjoy it a lot more than a mx bike for sure. it's reliable and easy to maintain. get out there and get used to it and you will fall in love with it. it should be a lot more tractable than a mx and you can cruise easily through the tight stuff

just had my first wipout on the new bike!!! bit my tongue and cheek pretty good and scraped my chin/neck area. i was comin down a small hill and the front was up a bit, and when i hit the bottom the front hit kinda hard, but it bounced up and sideways a bit and threw me off pretty good lol.

lol....Last time I rode my RM in the woods it was really slippery. I fell a ton of times. Was sore and beat up at the end of the day. That day was when I decided to try quads.

I can't relly make up my mind. Both are very fun in completely different ways.
