hello, im so glad to have this new to me crf250l Ive had other adv bikes (KLR,VStrom) but they were way too heavy and scared me off of dirt for a long time as a beginner. I recently dipped my toes back into dirt on an XT225 quarantine rebuild project. That bike is very confidence inspiring and I've now made the next step up to the crf250l. I love the better brakes and power compared to the XT. I just need to keep practicing my skills and go on lots of rides! Looking forward to reading and learning more about this bike!
