My Honda CRF250 Rally. That red thing. The Little Red Pig. The African Single. The bike that sort of brought the joy back into my motorcycling. I'd sold my Suzuki GSX tank and was seriously thinking about stopping riding altogether. Then I discovered TET and decided to at least try that before quitting. Spent ages searching for suitable bike. I was originally planning on Yamaha XT350 and spend some time rebuilding it. Alas, the price expectations from sellers with worn out 40 year old bikes were quite unrealistic. I then decided to go for CRF250L. I was planning on updating the headlight to a better one, put bigger tank and a screen. But I also had trouble finding them at realistic price. Then I stumbled upon this 2018 CRF250 Rally with lot of options. Camel tank. HyperPro suspension front and back. Sargent seat. Pelican box. Renthal bars. That is on top of the stock goodies like Fuel Injection, ABS brakes, LED headlight. Best of all the seller was willing to drop the price considerably. Now Noraly Schoenmaker (Itchy Boots), Austin Vince and others have made these bikes famous.
