I feel the Honda is a fun bike if one accepts what it is and isn't. My KTM was magic, but way overkill for dual sport riding. I tend to build a bike in to exactly what I want than sell it!
Only mods so far are hookups for heated gear. Eventually, higher bars to make standing more comfy.
Now, to sell my new Harley. Another bad decision!
I am nearly 70 ,and I bought the crf250l about 2 months ago,,,,,love it, I have installed GPS,,Acrebsis bar protectors, richeches SP. bash plate. . 2 stage heatroller for vest and gloves,,,and a givi top case,,,,on a cycleracks rack, next mod will be seat concepts seat,,,and maybe a 13 tooth sprocket.. And a holder for a SPOT.
This bikes real fun, and does everything well,,,, wanted a wr250 r,,, but the price and dependability factor ,influenced me to pull the trigger on the MOUNTAIN GOAT....it's hard to beat a Honda.......
