I have a plated CRF250X, with an opened airbox, Twin-Air, FMF Q, etc. I live in the SF Bay area, home to some of the best twisties anywhere. Last weekend I rode about 75 miles up through La Honda, Pescadero, Half Moon Bay, etc. I came to the conlusion that I either need to get some new SM wheels, or buy a second bike for those weekends where I can't hit the dirt. Is it going to be worth it to spend $1500 on wheels, brake relo bracket, new chain, etc.? Right now, obviously, cornering sucks. And the bike tops out at about 65-70. 55mph is all I'm comfortable sustaining for any length of time. All I want is to be able to blast through the twisties, and to stay with traffic on the longer "transport" sections. No freeways in my future. I also want to go to the Stockton SM clinic. Should I save for a XR650 with a plate (good luck finding one), convert my current bike, or find an old cafe racer to satisfy my hunger for street riding?
