I own a new CRF250L and I'm 6'1" and 230 and the bike will carry me just fine. I didn't buy the bike as a road bike I have other bikes for that, but up to 55-60mph the bike is a blast to ride, just what I wanted for my off road riding and zipping around town, great fun bike and does everything I wanted in a bike of that size. The bike offers everything that todays riders want in a modern bike, water cooled, fuel injection, great fuel mileage, and Honda quality. Take it from a old guy 68 year old and probably have had over 50 plus bikes and still counting over the years.
