I'm a new poster here folks. I've been reading through the forums for a bit, but would like some input on my specific situation. I'm about to buy a CRF250L for occasional commuting and running around for fun. But, I just found out my mother has cancer... this means I'll be taking a trip about once a month for appx. 2.5hrs down the highway at 65-70mph speeds to my parents to help out with the cancer treatments. I'm a pretty young feller so I can handle getting beat up by the wind a bit. Pretty much the whole trip down to my parents is flat interstate riding. I'm thinking I might need something a little bigger than the 250 now. What do you think? Other than the monthly trip down to my parents' I'll mostly be riding around town and maybe highway commuting about 25 miles to work once a week. Sooooo... can this little 250 handle some trips down flat SC interstate, or should I start looking at BRP's and the like?
