    *Temporarily out of the market due to home repair issues*

    Looking for a nice CRF250L Rally for under $4k, but also interested in any small, light, and reliable dual sport:
    • XT225
    • XT250
    • CRF230L
    • KLX250S

    I can pick up from within about 70 miles from Davidson, NC.

    *Edited to exclude scooters. I decided that’s just not what I need right now.

    That's actually kind of tempting, but I think I need to pass. I have zero knowledge regarding motorboats, and I'm not sure I want to cut my teeth on a project.

    Still looking. Budget increased and list narrowed; no longer considering scooters. Specifically, would love to find a nice crf250l rally with ABS for under $4k.

    @FOXedupONE, I sent you a couple of PM's about your Tmax, but didn't get a reply. Maybe you have your PM's turned off? (I didn't want to post in another inmate's thread, but I can't find a Tmax for sale. Hopefully, emoose doesn't mind. )

    Thanks for the leads, but it looks like I’m out of the market for a couple of weeks. Heat pump died, and I have to get that all worked out before I buy another bike. :roll:
