It was up-staged by the CRF250L last year. I have a few miles on my 230 and love it. After many years on Transalps and NX650's the 230 was a bit of a departure from my usual riding style. I still have both my NX's but I seem to be putting more miles on the 230 then the others. Easy to ride.
Hey Don, I told him you can't find much for that kind of money, he's not going to ride it much and just doesn't want to spend much on it. I don't know much about the CRF230 but I thought they were relatively new and out of his price range. They also look very small, kind of like the DR200 which to me looks like a big mini bike. I'll take another look at them.
Weren't you planning on doing the TAT, surely not on the 230?
