    I've only just bought a low kms 2015 crf250l and I absolutely love it.
    Between my Triumph scrambler and the crf I have all the kinds of riding I want to do covered.
    Its great to have a 250 traillie in the arsenal to zoom around town on as well as do some easy off road exploration.
    Light and flickable, easy on fuel and easy to maintain. Spare parts cheap as chips from Thailand where its made. In fact both my bikes are made there.
    No issue for me since My wife's from there and both our daughters were born over there too.

      Yep it's a great little bike and dirt cheap new or used. Mine was only 3 months old and I save about a grand over the new price. I haven't been off-road in about 30 years so it's a good bike to start exploring gravel roads and 4x4 tracks, it's also tons of fun on the road because it's so light :)
