I haven't ridden one yet. Just poking around on CL right now trying to determine what would be best to focus on to try to find a good deal. I camped at Guanella Pass in the fall and rode my buddy's CR250 around all weekend on the trails and it was exhausting with the peaky power and tippy toe starts and stops (and it was jetted wrong so it took a lot of clutching and rpms to keep it from stalling constantly).
Do you have any suggestions on a bike that would be nice for the CO trails out here that wouldn't be a pain to reach the floor? When I first had my CR125 when I was 13 I couldn't touch the ground with either foot, so I'd lean it way over slap it in gear and take off in one motion - I'm kinda over that
