Went to a CR500 from a KX125 figured 250 power to weight ratio was not enough after riding one. Hit first jump a table top hit like i did on the 125 gasing it at bottom of ramp and the thing stands straight up 10 o'clock while on ramp. I go off jump bike is now at 12 noon I come off the bike let go cause no way to land my new bike. The cazy thing was the bike landed then leaned to the left & crashed on side in some brush but nothing bad. I was like huh while picking myself up from the dirt well that sucked. Second time I was showing off for all the neighbor hood kids as I drew a small following with that bike. The bike was a monster and I owned it by now. It had so much power that if you caught a large rock the rear tire would pull the whole thing out of the ground or slice half a knobby off. I had never taken the CR out when it was wet though. I hit the straight away power slid the left hand turn at the end & hit a long looping trail that kind of turn back to where you started. There are like 15-20 kids cheering on the side as I display great skill ridding a wheelie while turning at speed & I catch a mother of a rock which does't follop out of the ground and flips me over in quick fashion hard. I get up surprized & full of pride that can't be and there is a crowd mind you not going to have that. I ride around with right handle bar going in the wrong direction which didn't give me any pause (hard impact cheap OE bars) loop around again ride perfect wheelie again & catch the same dam rock the same way and flip the bike a second time in spectacular fashion. Learned never to even think about taking that thing out if it rained the day before & bought some new red Renathal bars.
