250cc with 2up and gear, not if your going over any hills. i sure it will, but really slow. that kind of weight and on a bike that small would shorten the motor's life. i'm not saying that you and your wife are fat. but a bike that size would be ok if the too of you were 70lb. 8th graders with no gear. one person per bike is fine. so get two, and i'll see you two on the trails (when i'm home i.e. corona,ca)
i myself have not seen a kick start on a non motocross bike in a while, but then i've not been in the market for one.
i would go for a ktm 450, drz400, or a wr450 (i don't think honda makes a streetable 450cc). if you want to never run out of power get a ktm 990 adventure, DR 650se, KLR650, XR650, BMW 650F, BMW GS800, or a BMW 1200gs.
the euro hotrods drink gas fast, break exspencive parts more offten and are $3000.00-$6000.00 more than our trusty japanise friends.
DITTO on everything
Considering what someone else said about buildings being down and just mounds of other stuff all over would you consider a 4-wheeler? Riding on rocks and trails like that are a pain to do not counting a passenger or gear and if you have limited riding experience with non-smooth trails it can be difficult. 4-wheelers will hold the weight better, are very user friendly (no clutch, 4 wheels, reverse, 4x4, anybody can ride with little training), and still esy to get one with a jump start back-up. I hate four wheelers and would choose one over a bike anyday but that is because I've been riding bikes for years, for your situation I would consider a 4-wheeler though.
I'm here to generally help you out but I do have the power to make your day shit. If you're nice to me, I'm nice to you. Comply with my simple and straight forward requests and everything goes smoothly...don't and it doesn't go smoothly. Thats it.
That sounds about right, ?
