There is no major flaw on the bike from what I've seen, many of our miles have been off tarmac on rough rocky trails, I'm good at finding weaknesses in bikes....
Coming in here declaring that the bike shouldn't be bought because YOU bent it says more about you than the bike.
Didn't do more than drop it that's all that happened. A buddy of mine that races gncc said more likely that it fell at an angle that kept the peg from breaking away and thus caused the damage. The bike is a great Lil bike my original comment was in the heat of the moment! Like I said ill fix it and carry on and post after fix shots. Btw doing some research on this it has already happened to a half dozen other lrp that I now know of.

I have the manracks BBQ rack for my crf250L and I'm wondering if the wolfman ridgeline plus would be to big. I want something big enough to carry my first gear jacket & my helmet as well. Often in Ohio the weather is nice when I leave & cools off at night for my ride home.

Here's the scoop.
Guys buys it new. Puts 100 miles on it decides he wants a Jeep CJ. Trades it in on the Jeep. Gets hammered I'm sure so I low ball the dealership and he takes the cash and gets the bike off his showroom floor.

He was totally up front saying there is a "Dual Sport" version of the 390 (actually 375cc) IN PROCESS! The 390 that comes to the USA in October is 44 horsepower....so...imagine a CRF-like bike...a whole bunch lighter...with TWICE the horsepower.....hmmmm sounds tasty
Seat height is a deciding factor for me. Otherwise I would have gone with the WR 250

Here's an article on the street 390. Our bike was rolled off after the CB. http://www.fasterandfaster.net/2013/...iled.html#more

They don't say how many liters of storage that bag is, but it looks like it would easily swallow a helmet and jacket. And gloves. And maybe even some street shoes. You could also get a mesh jacket for the daytime temps and just throw a sweater on under it at night. They show it on dual sports, so....being fabric it can't be too much weight,
