Thanks. I do have a manual, that's how challenged I am......!
Zipping around the Long Beach, San Pedro & Palos Verdes area of CA this morning,
Rode today with a buddy (RM250) to check out the fall colors and do some gold panning.
Clear Creek County Colorado ~9700 ft
Around 4 hours into the ride, we bumped into a fellow adventurer (yz450f), new to the area, so we gave him a tour of the local riding spots.
Another 4 hours of riding and now pretty sore. And no gold nuggets found. But can’t wait to get out there and go ride again!
Beautiful pics!!! It is great riding out here right now. Where were you riding? I live in Golden but haven't been here that long and am still learning where to go. Those roads look fantastic!
I just bought a CRF250L. First ride was today, but I went south through the Pike Forest area. Just recently finished a 5,000 mile ride from Denver through the Idaho BDR and then down from the Washington/Canadian border to the Mexican border along the mountains, about 40% off-road, but that was on my Himalayan. I've only been off road riding a couple for less than two years, but the experience of it made me want something even more off road capable.
Dumb question, but the guy at Partzilla couldn't answer me. Can anyone tell me, when you order Honda plastic parts (ie, side cover) do they come with the graphics or without? Thanks!
I ordered new plastic parts for my bike. I changed the colour from red to black. They all came without graphics. Just bare plastic.
Question re wheels: What is the preferred aftermarket wheelset for the 250L, ie what is the best bang for the buck in a quality set? I'm thinking of having a set for more off-road oriented riding and using the OEM for more road oriented riding.
Warp 9, or OEM if keeping the same size tires. Not many other trustworthy options out there.
@JMGCO Awesome! I got out and rode way out off 285 this weekend past Kenosha towards BV. Headed in to National Forest Land by Salt Creek and rode for hours checking our leaves and riding trails. We camped for the night and it was crazy windy!!!
@flatland964 Loving the Himalayan!
Those are mosko reckless 80?
Yes, they are. Loving them! Incredibly well thought out product.
They were perfect for the trip and sit well on the Himalayan. I am hoping to be able to use them for the CRF250 also, but haven't tried yet (the Himalayan is still being shipped back from San Diego).
I want them also on my rally
Thanks, I was under the impression that the OEM's were sub-par but that's just here say from a Husky dealer.
Goddamn, i cannot decide between my Beemer + CRF 250 L and the Tenere 700 as my only bike. I am an offroad noob, have 0 experience. I am concerned, that the 250 will drive me nuts, when commuting to my destination hundrets of KM in Germany. But damn, this is a sexy bike :/
I was at a local dealer to look at used DR650 and sitting next to it was a nice 250L. I had a WR250R and like a dumb ads sold it. I have a Tiger 800 for road and mild off road. The CRF250L seems like a capable and fun bike. O have to admit it has me thinking it might be ideal for back roads, forests and trails. This thread isn't helping resist.
Always happy to meet up for a DS ride somewhere along the central Front Range. Shoot me a PM
Couple weeks ago, before the first very early snow. Clear Lake near Goat Mtn, Mt. Hood Nat'l Forrest.
You need them both.
Got the CRF 250L first. Got the DR in July. The BMW F800GS is gone.
Simply, capable, fun and excitement.
For me being old and short, the CRF250L is just soooo much easier than the DR650 was...
