Hi all, just got a MK1 CRM250 for greenlaning and plan to ride on a few rallies.
Total novice on the muddy stuff but have done a few trackdays.
Went upto Ashbymoto the other week to have a look, but way out of my league on the short coarse they were riding, so going to need some practice.
Still getting the riding kit sorted and need some amour to fit L/XL if anyones got some they want to sell cheap let me know.
Bought a CRM after reading good things about them but think I should of gone for something newer & sharper like a KTM or GasGas. What would you recommend with the budget of 1200 - 1500 quid......
Thanks.

Hi and :text-welcomewave:

Don't rush to change the CRM, they're still more than competent on the lanes. Get a few more rides in and you can then perhaps make a more informed decision about what you want / need. :handgestures-thumbup:

Welcome along Overland. As Bmk has mentioned there's nothing wrong with a CRM, very capable machines plus parts are pretty handy up at Leisure Trail.

Hope to see you out on the lanes soon.

Hi Overland and welcome to Larf :handgestures-thumbup: .
Ride the CRM, pick it up and try again as there's nothing wrong with it for using on the lanes and doing Rallies (both of which you need to be road legal).
If you want to do mx or enduro type events where you don't need to be road legal then maybe a lighter/sharper bike would be better. Either way the CRM will be fine until you decide whether you enjoy falling off or not :doh .
Open your eyes and you see what is in front of you, open your mind and you see a whole new World.
