Well, got on my first bike today. It's a Honda XL250R. It's my brother's friend's dirt bike and he's letting me use it to learn until I take lessons. I managed to get the bike going, driving up and down a cul de sac and getting used to a bike. I ALSO managed to crash it into a chain link fence and smash the fender to pieces.. That wasn't fun. But, I got back on and gave it a few more goes. I'm gonna be practising on it all this week until he puts in a new clutch, and then I'll have to wait until August when I take my lessons. I must say, the first couple goes were so much fun, and then I crashed which instilled much fear into me.. But I got back on and kept going. All I can say is that I'm hooked and can't wait till August!
Oh, and I'm just curious.. How much do you think an '85 Honda XL250R 4-stroke plastic front fender will cost? Obviously I'm going to have to replace that, hehe.
