Did you trailer the bikes from Missouri to Colorado or ride them out there? I'd love to do something like that someday. Nice pics BTW!

Any advantage to this with the CRF ?

I cut away the internal part of the snorkel when I first got the bike and removed the snorkel entirely, along with the spark arrestor on the air filter, after I installed the EJK tuner.

Nice, we are headed to CO at the end of this week. My wife on her CRF250L and myself on my WR250R. We'll have another CRF & WRR with us plus a Sherpa. 5 bikes all 250cc's.

We are running the COBDR and UTBDR. I know we'll be going over Ophir pass among many others and really looking forward to it.

hey JGPAGE2! welcome to this great website! I'm from Bastrop myself, and my family lives in Elgin off 1704!

and I went to big bend last October! lol small world, you will love it there. I went by my self though. loaded my plated XR 600 in the back of my truck and headed out west. stayed in the mountains the first night, and then at elephant tusk on black gap road the next two nights. I highly recommend that camp site if you will be on bikes. it is the most remote place in the park, and the best spot to hit all the good roads up, ( river road, pine canyon etc.) and you are not to far from the hot springs to go take a relaxing bath in.

take lots of pics, I want to see, and have a great time!

Edit: oh yeah here's a link to the xr600 thread where I posted my pics from last years trip !

Yesterday I got 134.3 miles out of a tank. I had hoped to gas up, but the station wasn't open yet, so gassed up on the way back. I zero trip A, when the the gas gauge is flashing, so I know how far I can go. I figure 35 miles would be as far as I could get, based on average figures. When I filled up it was 1.784 gallons (tank is 2.06), so I guess I could have made it another 20 miles, but not exactly wanting to find out. I've got the 13t/SpeedoDRD corrected by Garmin. The stock speedometer is off, not sure by how much, never rode it stock with the Garmin. I'm thinking of caring an MSR bottle, just in case. That was mostly street.

Thanks for the info.

I really like the 250L, just wish it had a bigger gas tank.

Kiwi,

Could you tell any difference after removing the snorkel?
Power, performance, etc...?

First trails travel

What amazing machine!

I purchased it as a cheap low maintenance commuter. For the off road I have another bike, but I had pending the test of the LRP in a real 'dual sport' environment.

I've been surprised about his versatility and reasonable good response on the dirt.

Awesome machine for his price.

Some pictures, enjoy the landscape of Don Quijote's land ;)

Regards,

rOmpe.

Please re-size those pics or at the very least, just turn them all into links.

Those things are huge!
