I'm sure Johnny would be faster than either of us on a 250L when we were on any bike. So what, life is not a race.
While you were in here trolling ADV or building budget bikes for large guys, I was down riding the Baja 1000 route solo during pre-run, then pitting for the racers, bought this bike for Nancy on my ride home matter fact. While I wasn't on the LRP in Baja it would have/will be just as fun for us mear mortals in Baja or anywhere and that's the point of this bike.

Maybe someday you too can have a bike made in the last 25 years, then you can call it what you want and pat yourself on the back for being so smart and come in and troll fools who ride something different with less power than you.

Funny how this bike seems to attract narrow minded people who feel the need to voice their opinion in the Owners thread, a place where it can only be interpreted as trolling, especially when one depends on smileys instead of communicating in intelligent ways and following the thread topic of CRFL ownership.
Why don't you go have fun on you 87' XR while we enjoy our new CRFL's, there's more to a bike than stats on paper or hypothetic fantasy races, if you can't understand that then why even post about it.
You don't think my nickname is fitting, well good for you. Move along.
Amen.

I labeled them so I wouldn't get confused (after the initial confusion).

1-30 thru 1-34 are also helpful.





I added these comments to my web page just now...

I'm not the one that's trying tarnish the BRP reputation by stating the CRF250L is the LRP.

Like you stated the two have nothing in common. But for some odd reason some CRF250L owners think it's related. The XR400 or XR250 would be the LRP's, not a bike that weighs more then the BRP makes less then half the horsepower and has suspension cute looking USD fork with a shock that was outdated 30 years ago.

Think of it as a reality check.


My last 7 out of 10 the bikes I had were less then 10 years old if you really want to know.

I enjoyed my time I spent on a CRF250L, but it's sure not a LRP...

The CRF250L is very limited by design. You can't put long travel forks on them, as ramz Has discussed. You can't lighten it by 40 pounds.


It's funny how you attack me, instead of using any facts.

As for trolling, it's a public forum. I replied earlier today with help for your fellow CRF250L riders.


The other post was made since naming the CRF250L the LRP is a big dig to XR owners whose bikes have more in common with the BRP then the CRF250L does.

I will gladly ride my 25 year old 250 around. Funny thing is it will go where the CRF250L can't and it's 25 years older. It will get you there just as faster too.

Let's see how the CRF250L fares in 25 years.

I'm sure Johnny would be faster than either of us on a 250L when we were on any bike. I agree.

But you said "power doesn't make the bike faster the rider does". Since power doesn't make a bike faster, he would be just as fast on the 250 or 650 according to your logic.

I do have fun on my 25 year old bike. I never said the CRF250L isn't fun to ride. I like the lighter weight, better suspension and power my old bike has. My wallet likes it even better.

Your nickname is fitting, you do seem kinda lost, just like I'm kinda mental.

I guess if you want to call it the LRP in your owners thread go for it.


So was out the sand that Baja left behind and get over it...

For starters it's not a XR... (thankfully)

The BRP is lighter, way faster and almost a piglet when compared...


The little part works for the engine size at best.

It's more white them red... The red is the lipstick...

It's definately a pig(big box kinda swine)... A heavy weight for sure...

LFP - little fat pig??? More accurate by far.

Making the introduction rounds, just got a new CRF-L. Haven't ridden bike much since the late 90's, really having a good time on this one. I've been reading back through the threads getting an idea of what kit works with the bike, thanks to those sharing knowledge. Hope I can contribute in the future.

Geeze, I thought my experience on a Big Red Pig and now my experience on a Little Red Piggy (that could) gave me enough perspective to have a nickname of my choosing that doesn't really have much to do with each other. I always name my bikes.

It's not a Little Red Pig, like a XR450 might be, (emphasis on Little) it's the Little Red Piggy (that could).
It's Little (our persecutive, Nancys previous "trail" bike is a 450 pound 650GS), it's Red (says so on title), and even with all the love in the world for it just the same, it's a Piggy. Not enough of a Piggy to not be fun while riding or a Pig when picking it up, or to be an actual Pig (pigs are big fast and strong, and can get away from you easily - XR650), but it has it's Piggy characteristics (like a teenage piglet, been around long enough to know what's up, is already domesticated, the courage to act, but not quite the strength of a full on mature Pig, and not as dangerous or finicky).

LRP.

Didn't Mental know that the difference between the Pig racer models, and the Piggy DS models was obvious to all of us already? I don't think anyone around here thinks they bought a scaled down budget Baja racing legend bike.

Either way you sir are way Red blooded, runs in the family I see and if anyone should be offended, if that is indeed the case, by our own nickname, it should be you.











Welcome to the club Cory!

You are in the right place, even if we get sidetracked now and then with BS.
I'm pretty new around here too, but am starting to see a pattern with lots of useful info and great community of riders, disrupted now and then by other folks.
Congrats on the new ride, and welcome back to life on Two Wheels, it's a good place to be.

Now post up some photos of your bike! :loll

Cheers


Finn




Long live the LRP! (and Nancy)

Welcome, It's a great place to be. The BS and sidetracking keeps it interesting at times. It also keeps it active...

Enjoy your bike. It should treat you right.

Remember blood is thicker then water and red runs deep.

Now that discription I like. Well worded.

Long live Lost's LRP (and Nancy of course.)

Hijacked isn't even the word for what this thread has become. More CRF porn though!

I dunno I kinda like the name Little Red Pig works fine for me - I had no Idea about Big Red Pigs or all the other flavors of pigs, LRP seems to fit it just fine.
