It is an XR-250, but there was a CRF-230 out there last year too. Its rider had a blast and range was not a problem at around 100 MPG. I think it was geared up a bit as the rider reported being able to reach 70 or so on pavement. But in most places out there your comfy cruise of 50-55 means you will see more of the great scenery.

In short I encourage you to go with teh 230 for this trip.

DONT ride any of Ed's bikes, the only outcome of doing that is you end up owning more bikes. :doh:

I second this motion. I rode his CRF450 for less than 2 miles on the trails, when I stopped him and remarked that I had to own one of them. A couple months later and I bought a WR450.

Three of us were planning to roll down from DFW for our first DS trip... However we had to take the top end off of the XL350R last night... if I can get the new valves ground in and the motor back in and running we will be there.

Would it be ok to use a legalized CRF 230f? Its kinda small bore but its great for offroad so light :D. I'm thinking about going have never ridden much offroad as far as legal duel sporting, recently made it legal. Pending weather and work (I travel with job), I might appear :)

This little bike only goes about 65 top speed, and comfortably around 50 or 55.

It will be find. I rode a XT225 last year.

Think it will be safe if I take two down (GS and WR) and leave one unattended?

Richard,
Sorry but I am going to have to bail out on Uncles ride. Really wish I could be there. Started installing a new metal roof on my house and it is taking longer than I thought. I Feel guilty about leaving half a roof on my house and then going away for 8 days. My wife would kill me. Be Safe- have FUN - will try to make Mextrex again.

I had both my Transalp and WR there last year and at Christmas. I just left the WR cable locked to the post outside my room last year. At Xmas I was at Uncle's and just left it sitting out. However there weren't too many of us there then. But I would plan on some sort of lock for the WR, just for peace of mind.

I'm taking down two. But then again, looking at your bikes compared to mine, I think yours will be more likely to get stolen.:lol2: Mine are ugly and all beat up.
