Honda CRF 250 (not my pic, but I have same model, color)

Gan buddy, tell me something smile wink grin
Can you put plates on the CRF and ride it on the city? I saw near my home the CRF 230F and people were saying that no can do sad
If it is possible that is the one, better looking that the Tornado... Also I was looking at a Falcon but it looks too much like a Twister for my taste... If I could modify it and make it look like the CRF then it would be awesome eyes

The first bike I will have will be a Honda 150 Bros, but I really hope to have a Falcon or maybe some Yamaha on the same level biggrin


I don't know dude.... depends where you live.

I live in Singapore and you're not allowed to ride it on the road (it's got no head light for god's sake).... I usually put it in a pick-up truck and bring it across the border to ride in the Malaysian forests.

I think it may be the enduro model.... the CRF 230/250 X.... F stands for motocross and X is for enduro.... the X model has headlights and electric starter (i think) ... and would probably be legal in some US states (not 100% sure) but you may have to fit turn signals and number plate brackets.... I know for a fact that enduro models like the Honda CRF X and Yamaha WR can be road registered in some parts of Europe and Australia/NZ, though.

Am I helping?

It might be the enduro since it comes with headlight and eletric start... I wouldn't mind to put some side mirror and turn signals... the biggest problem sayd is that it doesn't have a registration code that we call in here Renavan (don't know if it is the same in other places or it's equivalent) and therefore you can't not make a plate for it... it is a pitty since that is the most beautifull cross style that I have seen, I think that tank of her is better being tall like that then broad like the Tornado's... the Falcon's just doesn't fits a bike that big no

@tps2

You might want to look at some aftermarket shops or check some local publications to see if there are specialists that can convert morocross/enduro bikes to road-legal supermotos.

The main stumbling blocks are always noise restrictions, exhaust CO2 restrictions, and tires (you gotta fit street tires for road use)

Supermotos are basically dirt-bikes kitted with road tires / slicks.... you know the type in the X-games where you see them sliding/drifting around a car-park... those are supermotos.

Try asking around.... you can re-fit the dirt tires after the initial inspection.

I've been riding for 7 years as of know. Love it, especially because of the freedom inherent to this sort of vehicle (I'm not very patient and overtaking is a real pleasure).

I've switched to cars recently but I've got an old Honda VRF 750 1989 which is pretty reliable.

This is the bike I would like to get in the future: http://www.suzuki-motorcycles.ch/fr/products/models/sport/SV 1000S/SUZUKI_SV1000SK7_BIG.jpg.

I would love to ride a 250cc though. You can do pretty much everything with it.

Oh, yeah, male, 26, and I usually ride alone or with one of my sisters smile .

Great topic!!.... Best thread on MU ever..... Separates the real people from the pansies.

The Kawi Er-6f is a pretty good bike, I've heard.... Easy to handle and maintain and great in traffic.



Also have an old, beat up 1974 50cc two-stroke Vespa.... but it's at my mom's house... and it probably needs some servicing.


Thanks! biggrin I also thought it would be a great topic.

Er-6f is really made for people like me.... simply fun! smile

I think that Yamaha R1 is a killing machine, I haven`t riden it yet, but if I will ever have a chance I would like to try a ninja smile
But I know a priest that has a R1... Pretty cool biggrin

My dad and brother share a Yamaha Fazer 600cc --> it`s also a great bike
We also have at home a Sachs 250cc, two stroke, one cylinder, year 1953 --> we could ride it until my brother decided to `fix` it up a bit biggrin

You may think I'm crazy, but I honestly love the smell of two-stroke exhaust fumes. laugh

Two-stroke motocross bikes are so much fun.... too bad many manufacturers don't develop them anymore. sad

20 years old, girl.

Although I have driven both of my cousins "real" bikes (one of them is a Ducati Monster, the other I'm not sure... it was a Honda 750cc, but I'm not sure of the model), I'm not legally allowed to drive bikes that are bigger than 500 cc, so obviously I don't own any yet.

I do own my lovely Kymko scooter (a 250... she's sooo pretty! ^^), but, well, once I'm older, I definitely wouldn't rule out buying my own, serious motorcycle. Although, of course, I'd need to save up lots of money... and considering I might wanna move out sooner or later... yeah, my owning a bike will be a dream that will come true a long way from now....

I hope I can get a Moto again. I had a 91 Katana, but it got stolen sad

I'll probably try to get a cheap GSX or old CBR or a Ninja. Next summer :facepalm:

None. She doesn't even drive cars. She's on the back seat.

Wasn't it a Honda Shadow
My dream bike cool

@gan: thanks for the advice, I will talk with people who does that and see if it is worth, if not I will just get a regular On/Off... so far I would go with Honda eyes

Well unfortunately they do pollute environment a lot...

I wasn`t either, till last month.... and I got caught by the police once.... Now that I think about it, it`s quite funny, but at that time I was shaking like hell laugh


Quote from bedob

For me, they are very convenient, because before we got vinjete I paid 500-700 per year, now I pay around 55 for one year vinjete, for bikes it`s even cheaper (around 35 I think)
But for the people that just drive through Slovenia it is a little bit too expensive... well the "big people" up high are trying to do something about it (or they just pretend they are doing something mad )... we`ll see

I love Italian motorcycles, I haven't driven any myself although I've ridden on the back several times. I was hand-raised by a man who is singularly obsessed with them to the point that he started his own club for them after he retired, so it can't be helped that his daughter also finds them to be works of art. I want to take the safety foundation course sometime next year so I can try them out too but I'm kind of a wuss so I don't know how that will go. I think my Dad would go nuts if I tried driving one without taking the course first (and if I didn't wear full body leathers).

Cows and their fart gas cause more pollution than 2-strokes, but you can still find beef in the supermarkets.... It's not fair mad

All laws towards us motorcyclists are not fair..... I'm sure it's because that fat bastard politician was jealous when I overtook his ferrari on my R1.

I craaaaaaave the big Zephyr. Too bad I'm a pennyless douche. I can't even afford a goddamn license. (Not much of a surprise, when they're 2000+€ around here.) I ride my uncle's CBF1000 occassionally (illegally, of course smile ). It's a shame my dad sold his bike decades ago~ (Though I know he can barely even stand to look at my uncle riding around -- he'll eventually get a bike again, I just have to wait. biggrin)

Awesome topic by the way.

Good topic biggrin
Well, I have a Honda RVF 400 (motorcycle), a Honda Zoomer (scooter), a 125cc chinese motocross bike and a little 110cc chinese motocross-thingy, used as pit-bike smile
I am female, 17 years old.

I started out riding motocross from when I could barely walk, and stole my grandpas scooter to ride around on his farm when I was 5.
I got my scooter license when I was 16 (You can ride scooters in my country from that age), and I began riding motorcycles on a racetrack when I was still 16. Plus, I made my debut in dragracing 2 weeks before my first time on a racetrack on a tuned (is that correct?) 70cc old Benelli scooter biggrin

I'm not riding motorcycle on the road yet though, not old enough (have to be 18 in my country dead ) and the racetrack season is over this year, so I have to wait 'till at least April, where me and my family will travel to Hungary to a racetrack there, I hope...
Or else I have to wait for May in Sweden no

Bikes I want to have in the future must be a Honda CBR 600, a Honda Fireblade and a Ducati Desmosedici RR (I know, this is really a dream, but I'm shooting for the moon here!)
