Thanks, Gordy, for getting pics of us with our feet actually on the pegs!

OT, (I guess since it *attended* a trial albeit only inside a trailer so I can post a quick pic here in the Trials forum), here's a pic of the CRF250L in its more natural environment.



You can't really tell because somebody ran the sign over (we propped it back up) but this is El Camino Real between Vadito and Taos. Sipapu did a family ride along here some years ago. The 250L did great! This was only a forest road though, not anywhere close to as difficult as a trail or singletrack so no evaluations there.

On the road, it easily got up to 60 which the 230L has to work at very hard. I didn't go any faster because there was this slow guy on a DRZ400 in front of me... We had intended to go up La Junta (FR76) but it quickly turned snow-packed so I wimped out. Maybe today or tomorrow we'll do another dirt/road combo ride before the weather turns.

And, NMTrailBoss has the best idea: Collect the Set!



Hmm, do you suppose a Montessa 250??.....nah, a trials bike is pretty much the antithesis of a global bike.

cheers
