Hello all! I picked this bike up at St. Joe Honda back on August 22nd and therefore decided I'd join the other inmates here on the ADV forums. It's not my first dual sport as I had a new XL175 back when I was a youngster in 1974. Boy, have things changed for the better.....this bike is pretty sweet compared to that old XL......but I sure had a ton of fun on it back then and look forward to many more good times on the CRF. I've had street bikes, ATV's and snowmobiles in between but I've returned to my true love.....dual sports! I've haven't done anything to the CRF but remove the seat strap....man, that thing was in a bad place! I'm just watching the threads transpire on here as new products are released to see if there's anything I might want to add to it. I already know that I'll probably replace the front sprocket for a JT 13 tooth. First gear is pretty tall for any slow plugging along on the trail. Here are a couple of shots of the new bike in the backyard. I think it's a keeper!
