The CRF250L is great for local hops or commuting to work. For sport on the street, look for the tightest, twistiest bits of pavement, and it wouldn’t hurt if the surface was dirty and pot-holed. Off-road you should keep things basic, but just a more aggressive front tread would allow serious riding. Short stretches of freeway are taken in stride, but that isn’t where it shines. Basically, the CRF250L is great looking, serious fun on the cheap. It’s easy to buy, sips fuel and babies the tires. Gas it and go. me
