CRF 250 L joins my stable
« on: January 28, 2016, 08:33:20 PM »
I have wanted a 250 dual sport for quite a while.  Waited patiently for the right deal to come along.  I thought I would find a great price on a used bike, but finding the right one proved to be more difficult than I thought.  Recently, I went into the local Honda dealer on a cold wet day just to look at bikes and talk riding with some of the guys that have worked there for ages.  One of the sales guys asks if he can help me.  I said show me a deal I can't refuse.  He points to the 250l in the corner and says its a '15 model with a whopping 73 miles on the clock. What?  The owner came into some $$ and went crazy buying toys.  3 motorcycles and 1 atv from their shop plus a Harley from the HD shop.  The CRF was little used so he brought it back and said sell it.  I was the recipient of his excess.  Got a new bike for the price of a used one.  Love the fuel injection and great suspension.  I have returned to my roots as I started riding a small bike on dirt roads and trails.  Having a blast on the 250.

Is it plated?
 I've got a YZ250 2-stroke for trail riding. I rode nothing but dirt bikes for 45 years until last summer when I got my Nighthawk.

Thanks Mark.  I looked hard for a good deal on a 230l but never found one close enough.  I will probably rack up miles much more slowly on the crf than the NH.
 Raven-Yes it its plated.  Great to be able to ride on the road to the trails, sand bars, etc.  I think dirt riding can improve street riding skills.

Nice 250! I've been looking for a good deal on a 230 or 250 for some time. They're not easy to find - I end up getting something else before one shows up. That's how I ended up with my ST1100 and my ST1300     whoohoo1

You know it Dubb.
Robbie-Hard to find good used ones.  I lucked out on this one.
Raven-Nice YZ.  I bet that 2 stroke is a blast to ride.
