Have been riding Honda's from the Honda 70 days. All of my riding has been off -road. Took a break from riding and then about 10 years ago bought a Honda CRF 230 after buying my son a Honda 50. He moved up through the Honda line and now races a Honda CRF 250R. I bought a Honda CRF 250x to try to keep up with him on the trails. We are looking to do the Transamerica Trail in a 2018 -2019. Would really like to stick with Honda. Have looked at the CRF 650L but hate to buy a 20 year old technology bike. We love the looks of the Africa Twin but are worried that it might be to big of a bike for some of the Colorado and Utah trails. Look forward to learning more about the Africa Twin on this forum.
