Street rider, new to the dirt

Nov 16, 2013
I've ridden street for 5 years now (yzf600r first and an r1 now). Started on a Honda trx300ex when I was 15 to 19, sold the quad for my first street bike. I got to borrow my cousins yzf450 one weekend over this summer and just had to have a dirt bike. I bought a 1997 cr250 about a month ago for 500$, needed a carb cleaning and some adjusting and it's ready to ride! I don't know much about dirt riding on 2 wheels so I'll probably ask a bunch of really dumb questions.
