hey guys, i am starting riding again after many years of not riding and i was thinking of getting a CR250, but now I'm not so sure. should i get a 250 or 125? I am 5'9.5" and weight 165lbs. I would like to race someday. so far I am looking at a 1997 CR250 and a 1997 YZ125. they are both modded, but the YZ is loaded to the bone.
