    Thanks, can a CB250 be turned into a Scrambler? I saw a CB250 Scrambler on youtube in Europe.
    I was looking at CRF250 and still trying to find a CBr500X within reasonable distance to ACT to have a look. From the pics I've seen the CBR500X is adventure bike more comfortable on the road than in the dirt/bush but still a nice looking bike. Going by the recent research, it would be cheaper for me to get a bike less than or equal to 300CC's. So I might be looking at the CB's and 250 scrambler/road trails. Cause the wife just cut my budget in half.. :(

    I'm not convinced that a KLR would suit your height. I've got one (for sale, shortly, even :10.gif: ) ; I'm over six foot tall and I can't even flat foot it.... it does have after market suspension, but it's not that different from stock.

    If you're looking for dual sports, reckon the DRs would be more suitable.

    Enjoy whatever you get :16.gif:

    Ooops! I reread my original post and have noticed a typo. I am 5"10 not 5"7!
