Having recently paid off the bike, i have some money burning a hole in my pocket, and i decided that wanted something to have some offroad fun. Being that I have Honda credit already I was looking at the TRX 450R quad, or a CR 250R dirt bike. Let me know if you have any advice, and pros/cons of the quads and bikes.


Those of you lucky enough to have or have ridden both, which do you have more fun with

I was thinking about getting a dirtbike a couple of months ago. After reading about the upkeep of a two stroke motor I decided against it. I came to my senses and bought another streetbike.

If you are going to get a quad, get the TRX650 Rincon, I haven't run into anythiing that i can't do with it yet. Plus it is very comfortable and it hauls ass. it is good for just trail riding or hitting the mud holes just see how far you can make it before getting stuck!

The CR250 is probably a nice versatile bike. I've been mudding up my TZ250 and I have to say, sometimes I really want a thumper. Do you think you'll get bored or want more power after a while?

You gonna play ride on those Honda's or race. I've ridden and raced both quads and bikes. Quads: 88 TRX250R, 88 350RX, Leagers PRO-Trax 250R and a Yamaha YZ250F. The stock Yamaha will do everything my national Leagers quad would do on a track. The CR really isn't that much maintenence. Change and clean your air filter on a regular basis and depending on how much you ride, you might change a piston once or twice a year. Changing the piston is really easy once you do it. We've changed the topend on a TRX250R at the track in between motos. The harder you ride 'em the more maintenence you do. Goes for dirt and street machines.

WOW....not mechanically inclined are we?

2-stroke motors are THE MOST easily worked on motors I've ever touched

A $70 rebuild kit every other year and oil/gas is ALL the maint you have to deal with.

4-strokes last longer between servicing but at the cost of valves and such to deal with.



I'd rather have a 2-stroke ANY DAY....that power band hits on a 250 and you can wheelie in ANY gear :headbang

Two-strokes and heavy maintenance? What planet am I on? You can go years on the same top-end w/ no troubles. All the while leaving thumpers w/ almost twice the displacement.
