So I went and looked at an old 91 xr250l today as I have been wanting a cheap dual sport to fool around on.
I tried a klx 400 a couple weeks ago and hated it then tried a xr650 I liked but was too much money and a big bike.
So I went to look at this old Honda not expecting much and was somewhat surprised at what good shape it was in for a 20 year old bike.
It has 2400 miles on it and was loved by an old Washington state farmer.
Frame was painted ,swing arm and wheels polished,aftermarket cobra pipe and everything works.
What really surprised me is the power it has for a 250 and how tall it is ,I am 5'11'' and was not quite flat footed.
Anyway I figure it will be fun for some trail exploring , getting muddy and maybe teaching a younger family member to ride.I might even ride it to work.
If any of you guys have previous experience with one of these feel free to let me know about any common problems to look for.
I guess I may have to sign up on dual sport bc now.
