Follow-Up Review On 2008 Honda CRF230L

Now that I've put about 600 miles on my CRF230L since buying it in May, I can say that it is a great bike. But what I have found out is that it's not really meant to be a highway bike. If you plan on riding on rural-type roads at speeds between 35-50 mph, the bike is a lot of fun. It has razor sharp handling due to its relatively short rake and trail, but at speeds above 50 mph, it does get squirrely--especially when it's windy. It's not a highway cruiser due to its light weight (267 lbs.) and high center of gravity. Gusty winds will push it around on the highway, so be prepared. But--it is what it is---and that's a great off-road bike and a great bike to learn on and commute with. I'm averaging around 86-88 miles per gallon, which is amazing. The motor is rock-solid and never misses a beat--typical Honda. I would recommend the bike to anyone, but I will be moving up to a larger bike next year for more highway use.

Upgrades/Accessories:  None, other than I've strapped a milk crate to the back for errands in town, etc.
