    I was wondering if anyone new much about them or has one and if they are a little small for an adult. I have found one that has an issue with second gear but can get it on the cheap. I haven't went and looked at it yet since its a bit of a drive to see it.

    From what I have seen size wise its looks like a big mini bike, its a ways to drive and find out its to small.

    They are a little kids bike I'm 5' 7 and they are way to small for me and are way to gut less. If you have riding experience get a 250f.

    Ive got one, its pretty good, but really important before you ride it hard the frame isnt complete, and it uses the engine as an important link in connecting the frame so it is not good especially if an adult is going to be using it. BBR makes an engine cradle that also eliminates the weak point. The airbox is super restrictive with a filter the size of your fist, BBR has a larger filter kit and you can cut the top off the airbox. and some heavier springs are really nice too.

    In my opnion a much better alternative is the Suzuki DR200, that bike surprized the S**t out of me the power it had for a small 200cc engine.
    I DO NOT recommend the Yamaha TW200 cause its too slow for any highway riding, it can't accelelerate on the highway ramps, its only good for low speed limit, local roads. but the TW200 is an excellent off road bike.

    I've ridden one, i guess its a matter if you want to get there or you want to snap your neck. It'll do 70 in a wind, with me on it. I'm big-ish. 0-60 I would guess.. 8 seconds or so off timing me on the crf230. SO.. not a gsx, but not everyone wants a gsx. Lot of carollas on the road, not everyone wants a lamborgini.

    thank you for the input, i chose not to go look at it went to a dealer and checked one out seemed a bit small. i got a really good deal on a brand new '09 crf230f that they were closing out so i went with that.
