I'm obviously new to this forum, but I needed advice on a certain situation that is developing amongst my family. Currently, my family owns three different bikes. We have a Honda CRF230F, a Honda CRF70F, and a Kawasaki KX65. Normally I ride the CRF230F around my house (we have 4 acres of land), however, lately my brother, my father, and I have been venturing to the local MX track close to my house. The CRF230F is simply too heavy to handle the technical aspects of a motocross track. I have also gotten bored with the power delivery, it's just too pedestrian. There's no pep, not enough tourque. I guess I'm ready for something more. My question is this: would the CRF150R or the CRF250R be the better bike for me? I am short (5'6'') but I wrestle and if I can throw around the 230, I am sure I can handle the 150 quite easily. But would the 250 be too much bike for me? Could I lower the suspension a little or adjust the sag so it's a little more rideable? I weigh about 135lbs. Thanks for any and all replies. I really appreciate it.
