To Rally Or Not To Rally
Hands down, we like the Rally better. The wind screen, skidplate, and fairing add comfort and protection without any draw backs in the dirt, bigger tank means longer rides, and more suspension means we can be a little bit more rowdy. We'd say the CRF250L is the way to go if you want to spend even less money, you want to ride local dirt road and two track at a sightseeing pace, and you want a street legal commuter and/or campground bike. The CRF250L Rally is for those of you out there that have, or ever have had, a desire to do some adventure bike riding but was intimidated by the size, investment, or weight of other adventure bikes. You can buy 3.2 of these Rally models for what a BMW 1200 GS Adventure cost. As people that have ridden both, we'd take the Rally almost any day over a full-size ADV machine.
