Tried to steer him to an SV, but his hatred of v-twin sound was unwavering.

Must be his age. I probably wouldn't have ridden one at his age either. It wasn't cool enough.

I tried buying a ratty one in HS but my parents shut me down... Full fairings make them sporty looking

Back in the day, my mom threatened to kick me out of the house. Then they found the insurance stuff for my bike in the mail. :lol:

Still lived at home though so who really won there?

My SV is also has all the fairings.

I went with a buddy of mine to pick up a bike and he was "hiding" it at his neighbors from his mom. Once she realized it was his she kicked it over 😂... My dad rode my whole life but wouldn't let me get my own bike until I was 18 (I had a couple off-road bikes though but never a street bike until he passed and I got his vmax)

So weird. My parents helped me search craigslist and even drove the truck and trailer to pick up my first bike. Heck they harassed me to get rid of my dirt bike and buy a street bike when I was in high school.

I parked mine in my friend/ neighbor's garage too! My dad had a bike and got my mom on the back once. Shes a nurse (nuff said). So basically when mom said she didn't like motorcycles my dad followed suit. BUT when mom is away the cats will play and he took my old 600rr around the block a time or two when she was out shopping. My mom didn't kick mine over. She went with the try and make him feel guilty route (which normally works) but she soon found out it doesn't work on me with motorcycles or motorcycle related activities. :lol:

I'd love to ride with my dad. But as long as my mom has a say, he's not getting anywhere close to two wheels.

      Thinking about selling my 690 if anyone is interested. My 790 is on the way so don’t need both and I’d like to pick up a Victory Octane. Hard to find because people just don’t get rid of them. Looked forever for this one. Mint condition 2nd owner only 5000 miles. Completely stock unmessed with other than adjustable shorty levers and oem levers comes with it. And new Q3’s and Puig sport screen. 
      Not a scratch on looks killer and handles like on rails. As anyone here that’s rode with me will say. Just brought out of storage and fully serviced for the season. Always stored inside on battery tender. 
      More pics on request  no test rides without cash in hand unless I know you or know someone who will vouch for you. 
       
      $6000

      I'm selling my 2004 Honda CRF250X dirt bike, street-legal with a clean and clear title, ready to go for the season. It's the X model with wider gearing that people get for woods riding, enduros, hare scrambles and dual sports, AND it has the popular R (racing) cams for MX-level power, especially off the bottom. The bike is no joke at 270 lbs wet. My buddy and I went thoroughly through it last spring and again this winter to make it possibly the most sorted X you'll find. He rode the Honda with me in Wayne, Perry and Flint Ridge, but moved out of state recently. That's why I'm selling it - I have another bike that fits me better.

      We added a road-legal lighting kit and registered it with the DMV (yay dual sport rides!), replaced every fluid except the forks, installed new tires and HD tubes (now roughly 100 miles/15 hours on them), replaced the air cleaner, cleaned and regreased every wheel bearing, replaced and greased every suspension bearing, added handlebar risers and set sag for a 180 lb 5'10" rider, installed a new lithium battery (pushbutton start AND kick!), added Cycra handguards and radiator guards, replaced the foot pegs with a set that actually grip and also installed a Trail-Tech Vapor unit for speed and engine temp. There are a few little things too, like fork "shock socks," a temp-monitoring radiator cap, seat pack and grab handle. I'll throw in a brand new (quality) set of chain and sprockets, the service manual and spare lightbulbs, plugs and other misc. parts.

      Friends know I take care of my bikes like I never want to get stuck far away due to mechanical neglect, and this X is absolutely ready to hit the trails again as-is. But here's where I tell you about the negatives - you need to change the fluids like it's an R model, so don't be waiting a whole season between services - it's just like a KTM, Beta or Husky. The right crankcase took at brake tooth hit during Flint Ridge. I repaired it with JB Weld and haven't had an issue since, but I'd recommend inspecting it during the next oil change and considering a case protector. The Vapor's spark sensor wire broke, so it won't tell you RPM (a $20 fix). It has a good bash plate, but stump hoppers will want to add or replace it with a full-coverage unit. It's quick, and I mean quick off the bottom, so I would NOT call this a beginner's bike unless you have good throttle discipline. The existing chain and spockets are fine but could use a swap within the next year (included). I'd recommend draining the fork oil if for no other reason than to say that EVERY fluid has been changed, and checking the valve clearances - I meant to do both over the winter but work got in the way. The bike starts, runs and suspends great, but it never hurts to be proactive, ya know?

      The bike is located in northeast Columbus, priced at $2900. I know I don't have to say this to OhioRider folks, but please no scammers and time wasters. I'm an honest, no-BS, no-games seller who would be happy to sell this bike to a fellow (or would-be!) woods rider from this forum.
