2013 Honda CRF 250 L
Yes, I am riding a 250 from Lima, Montana to Lima, Peru and taking plenty of detours so far. I am in Denton, Texas having made a 4000 mile loop which included: Great Falls, Montana to Lima, Montana almost all paved, Lima through Idaho some dirt roads, Windy Walla Walla Way and up to Seattle, down the 101 to LA over to Texas and up the third world grade I-20. Heading south through Matamoros soon. So far the Honda has been a champion especially in the draft of big trucks. El Paso to Midland was easy but some of the road between Midland and Denton was ...a little bit of hell thanks to the crappy road surface, wind and rain. Enjoying the buzz. Lots of buzz.:rain:
Very interested in this one :clap: Please update often. I'm considering the Honda for long distance touring myself and will probably have many questions.
Anxious to hear about the trip and the bike! I hope there's pics!!
Hope the ride's going well, Ron.
I like the idea of the CRF-L for travelling too: fast enough, light and economical. Cheap too for what it is and not too small for me.
I did a 200-mile test ride on one a few weeks ago in the UK and have just bought a used one in the US to ride around the Southwest and then bring back for the desert.
Plan to make it the new AMH long term project bike following the GS-R, BMW, Tenere and so on.
Four months later...
Bought one in AZ, did a 3000 mile trip and sold it.
MHO here with plenty more pix and impressions linked off that page.
