I'm looking to pick up either a CRF250L or WR250R.
You'll shoot your eye out...
And I'll have you to partly thank for that!
I did 3 weeks with a CRF250 in Thailand, and ride a 250 here with plans for RTW if the opportunity should arise. Rode a KLR for a bit, but the 250 just does what I need when I need it, though it helps I am not a large guy. I think we will start to see more 250s on longer trips in the future, they make a lot of sense for getting from point A-B.
