I am 32 5' 10", 200 lbs., and fit, I had an 80 when I was younger and have ridden a friends 125 a few years ago, I plan to do trail and hill ridding, I like Hondas and am looking at a 89 cr 250, and a 90 cr 250, same price ($1500) is there any difference? Would this be a good bike for me?

All other things being equal (abuse, aftermarket extras, hours of use, etc..) the 250 is a better deal.... If you have ridden a bit the 250 shouldn't be over the top for 200lb rider, as long as you ride within your limits

I am your size but 43. Took about 15 years off riding then got a 93 yz250. Powerwise you will be fine but not sure what the Hondas your looking at are like to ride. Check www.georgiaoffroad.com for an owners review of many bikes and years.

I'm 36 and just got an 04' CRF450r and LOVE it. You might like the power dilivery of they new 4 strokes instead.

for $1500 just try to get the best in condition bike you can because replacement parts add up real quick.

would recommend a flywheel weight for 250 2-stroke if your trail riding
