I will say as a new DS rider, a 5'3 woman, I am getting very comfortable on my CRF250L. I've had it a few days and have 150kms on it. I can barely touch the ground but I am so happy with my purchase. The suspension is amazing compared to the only other DS bike I've ridden (XL200r). I barely feel the bumps in the road, loose gravel is a bit scary on the original tires.
I enjoyed your review
