    I am picking up 2 xt 225s one for the wife and one for me. Are these things up to the task for offroad conditions. Back roads 55mph.
    Can they do highway speeds? Not that it matters. Both have low hours and were used as MSF training bikes. Im getting an excellent deal for these but want some real world advice.

    ive ridden these and know they don't have allot of power but I don't care for power just function.

    I have a XT250, but a guy I ride with occasionally rides a 225 and has no problem at all on single track and it can easily do 65 on the highway.

    They are tractors off road. I've dragged myself up some nasty steep trails and the things are as dependable as a hammer.

    Good luck with yours.
