I would like to get a 250cc bike. I am 6'2" and 191lbs. I grew up riding on trails and always had a street and trail bike. Now I am 37 years old and I have the bug again. I rode with a friend at a local motorcross track on a xr250r. I was not riding fast or jumping high but the bike was easily bottoming out. I am unsure about what bike to get for myself. Some people recommend a kdx and others the xr. Would a bike like a yz250 be too much for someone like me? I rode one yesterday and it was like riding a missle. Alhtough i did like it. It belonged to someone else so I did not ride it on the track. Also what about a a 250f? Is that bike easier to ride? Thanks so much for your time and opinions.
