I agree with KRONO, go with your gut feeling. In your situation, money is tight, I know, been there, done that. I've never been without a bike since I got my licence, so I can't imagine how it would be to not be able to ride. Some of the folks on this thread frown on "non owners" posting, but that's how I got information, and ultimately, went with the CRF. Thinking that you could hand down the bike to your son/daughter, so that makes it more cost effective. Good luck!
