I've got a sweet price lined up at a dealer in Toledo, but I need to know I'm not buying a $4500 pig-in-a-poke. Send me a PM...I'll kick in $$ if it'll help.
Hey man, sorry I can't help you out I'm down in VA. I will tell you that I got rid of my Honda Shadow to get the CRF 250l and am very happy I did that. My cousin sold his street bike and got a WZ 250. His bike is a lot quicker then mine but for the price the Honda is definately the best deal out there. It doesn't wheelie well but Honda's aren't really known for that. It is a solid bike and I wouldn't trade it for any other dual sport. I've heard of people just doing some minor adjustments to increase the HP but I am a little more reserved because I can't afford to get hurt on it. Good luck and be safe!
