My Honda CRF 230 L

It sure isn't the 1200 cc Harley but it sure isn't a Honda 50 cc Scooter either. It is quiet and perky and rides well in the city and climbs well on the dirt paths. I loved having the power to hit 80 cc without difficulty on the up hill of the bridge. It's got all the power I need and I'm really looking forward to having it in the country. Now to see if I can get it on the truck. Bow hunting season opened this week. Any bigger engine and the noise would have been a deterrent. Heavier it would definitely be harder to load in a truck or pick up in the woods if I'm alone and dropped it. Without getting a hernia it takes two to lift the Harley. The CRF 230 is a fun ride and a durable bike. I've a storage box coming.
Troy at Carter Motorsports was great. Jill in parts was terrific too. I'd lost a glove en route and she gave me a single one free. I'm a happy guy who now has to put his Harley in storage for the winter while using this bike for town and country. The insurance will be a whole lot less. When it rains, as it sometimes does in Vancouver. it will be a safer bike to be riding to and from work especially when I have to cross bridges to get to meetings.
