I got an 83 cm250 and after driving it around the subdivision and the trails around the subdivision, I'm starting to feel like this bike is more enjoyable on trails or in dirt than on the road.
It could use more grip, but i could also swap out for knobbies

Has anyone else felt the same when it came to their bike?

just think how much fun you could have with a proper off road bike

Before I chopped my 85 Rebel I off-roaded it a few times, even took to the air a couple times. The upper motor mount didn't fare well from one of those two jumps.

P.S. next to that rigid frame mini bike, a half-ton Victory Vision makes for superior off roading.

Yeah I'm a little glad none of the trails around me aren't too muddy for the street tires., but i do want some dual sport dick disease protector, surprisingly grippy in dirt for how punchy the little thing is

I am, in the middle of the conversion atm, just gotta steal 4 washers from the bolt drawr at the farm when I'm at work, just temporarily assembled

Are you aware that you have an RK chain sticker on your belt drive guard? <img src="http://www.hondarebelforum.com/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Very Happy" class="inlineimg" />
