i will get some RowBust tools
there are smaller RTW riders who like smaller bikes
it functions just fine for me--on & off road---though I suspect for most of you boys, you don't weigh 140 pounds
well spoken, Wes!
wow! I think I just fell in love with @minkyhead !
just a quickie RR (forgot to mention how stellar the headlight is...even on a full-moon night) of a not-so-quickie 530 mile (853 km) ride from this past weekend...I love this bike.

Has anyone installed a BBK in their Rally yet?
I am curious about reliability and highway vibes.
I feel a 350cc version would be perfect.

I actually saw the Rally in a TV commercial.
It was one of those Honda Dream Garage deals.
During game 2 of the NBA post season. TNT.
Juice: Yeah, my WIFE noticed that in the commercial....I said DUH...what?
IMS Products is now offering a larger-capacity fuel tank for the CRF250L Rally model. The Rally racing-inspired tank features a polyethylene cross-link design that won’t interfere with a normal riding position and holds 3.5 gallons of fuel.
That is what Honda should have given her to begin with.
In order to get 250 miles you need 71.4mpg. Doable on the dirt roads of the western lower 48 States.
I recieved an e-mail from IMS to send back my tank I just bought from them for my 2017 250L as they are doing a recall. Not sure if it also applies to the Rally too but the website shows no tanks for either model,probably would best to contact them if you are thinking of buying.
Honda Australia have the CRF250L Rally on special for $6990 ride away until June 30.
I feel like it is a 60% chance the 300 will be here. The Rally may not have gotten the 286 because the CB300F, CBR300R, CB300R, and Rebel were more important for 2018.
Your logic is sound. The competition is kind of rough at a $5,899 price point.
I actually believe there is a 25% chancd they will go with a 350cc to compete with the competition.
Honda just improved the 250cc they brought forth in 2013 for 2018. But that is fine. The basic 250l will live on for a while.
And always remember,
The R/D for getting the 286 to mid range torue was already done with the Rebel.
So, useimg that engine on nother frame would be ok for the bean counters. Japan loves economy of scale. It is there primey means of mking profit. BMW makes their gains from folk bringing them back to the dealership after the warranty expires.
Well, take note of the new '19 CB300R (the street model) just announced in all the magazines etc. it's marketed in europe WITH power ratings....30.5 horsepower. That's about 6 more than our '17/'18 Rally's.....in the grand scheme of things.....that's a LOT more power!
We should have the confirmation (or lack of it) by EICMA, but a rally with ~30hp might be the closest thing to the unicorn we all want.
