Ok so, my buddy, who had previously stated that he wanted to sell his 2007 crf250 and get a newer yz250, has bailed on the idea. To do what you might ask? to spend 2 grand on a bike that he has now put more $ in than a new 450f, not including the 2 grand he is currently putting into it, wheels, graphics, whole new carbon exhaust, the list goes on.
He basically said he wouldn't be able to get as much as he wanted out of the 250f so he's going to keep it, and sink more money into it...i just can't understand why he would do it, at this point, he'll NEVER be able to sell it unless the buyer intends to use it as a 2 stroke conversion project.
It just is beyond my capability to comprehend what he's doing and will continue to do, he now has a job to support his habits (his father paid for everything before). I kind of hope it blows on him, so he can realize what he has the hard way, he never had to pay the 1800 + bucks (multiple times i might add) to fix his bike, maybe when he does, he'll switch, but until then, its rev limiter bouncing and valve adjustments in his future.
i'm just so surprised by his stupidity..
