Got the kids Honda dirt bikes for Christmas. 6 yr. old son got a 50 and 12 yr old daughter got a 100. I can ride the 100 good, but want to get some for us that you can ride on road too. Man at dealership told us about the 230. He said you could buy a kit to go on it for that purpose. He said the only thing is--you might have a problem getting a tag for it. Another thing--I got on the 230 & my big toe barely touched the ground. I'm 5'5 & 120 lbs. This bothers me! Anyone have this bike that's around my size? I sure would have to buy it & can't maneuver it! Or, what would you suggest? DH is a firm believer in Honda. He had 4 growing up. We took the kids to a track yesterday, thinking it was just a dirt bike track for the family--maybe Ricky Carmichael's family, LOL! Anyway--I did it--although I'm not promising how many times I was in the air! I've never ridden one before. Growing up we had scooter motorcycles--Mom wouldn't let us have dirt bikes. Now mom can't say that! ROFL!
