My Bike - 2005 Honda CRF250R

For nearly the first twenty years of my life I was riding snd racing motocross, but of late I seemed to spend a lot more time filming and uploading videos on motocross and dirtbikes.

The only 4-stroke bikes I had ridden was my brothers XR400 then his KTM450. I had seen how 4-strokes were dominating the race scene so when I decided to get back into riding for myself, it would be a 4-stroke motocross bike for me.

I wanted a Honda, always been a fan of Honda's and my local club had a capacity limit of 250cc so it was an easy choice of a CRF250R.

Feature Video - My 2005 Honda CRF250R:

 


 

I logged into an online motorbike sales site called bikesales.com and was able to narrow the search down to Honda CRF250R of the years 2005 to 2008 as they were in my budget range.

At the age of 22 I could afford to spend most of my money on a dirtbike, at 42 after the mortgage, kids school fees, insurance bills are paid... I'd go for the 2005 CRF250R because it was about $3000 cheaper than most of the other bikes.

Turns out the guy selling the bike was an engineering student heading back to China and just wanted the cash.

It looked pretty cool with a One Industries sticker kit and black gripper seat cover, but needed a bit of work and a cleanup.

Take a look at the video to see for yourself.
