Im in the market for one but the problem is Im 5'6" and at about 145lb. I need a bike where I can somewhat flatfoot as well as not too heavy for my small ass. Im not looking at anything bigger than a 250 Ive looked at the CRF230L but from what i hear it will be dangerous on the freeway. My DS will be my street commuter but I want it to be able to hit the freeway if i have to. Im in CA so i cant convert any dbikes. Any suggestions....Is it hard to lower bikes???
