    Anyone ride dirt bikes?

    I recently purchased a Honda 2007 CRF 250 R and am learning how to ride it. I’m a total beginner and realize that this isn’t the best beginner bike, but I got a great deal on it, and so far it seems to be going well. I’m mainly looking to do trail riding and have been riding Table Mesa East lately.

    Anyone else here ride dirt bikes or recommend any groups that do that are beginner friendly?Name:  IMG_2681.jpg

    I ride a lot. Single track trail rides and very long multi day rides. I am about an average skill level rider. I have ridden with a lot of guys that are way faster than me and a few that were slower. No problem.

    The video of the single track looks cool and is about my speed. I have my RV plate and my ohv sticker but my bike is no where near street leagal. Still trying to figure out how far a tank of gas will go.

    The most important aspect as far as safety is concerned is to make sure everyone is gong the same direction. Most serious off highway accidents are head on collisions.

    These guys can help with that:

    Added a pic to my fist post.

    I'd love to get out and ride but not sure I can make it happen this Sunday. Thank you for the offer. I know we only have a few more weeks of nice weather down here.

    No problem. Maybe next time. Nice bike but it looks like it still has the plastic skidplate and rotor guard. Those don't help much.

    Plastic rotor guard yes, but the skid is aluminum and pretty nice.

    Great. You will be surprised the pounding it will take.

    How about a picture? Those bikes were like a tractor and low enough youcould put both feet on the ground. What year? Metal gas tank?

    How's the riding going? Just got back from a baja trip. Going to ride Taylor park in Colorado the end of July.

    In Colorado at the moment Jeeping the San Juans, and riding a few trails on my '96 GS-1100.

    Will try to remember to get more pic's posted of the TT-500 when I get home. It's an all original (except for the tires, which were replaced about two years ago ... LOL...) 1977 TT-500D, in the original "Halloween Orange" with all original plastics and metal tank. Bought new @ Imperial Yamaha, in Imperial, CA. It's an absolute BLAST in the Dunes, which is where I rode it the most, when I lived in Yuma area...
