I had the crf 250m supermoto version , fantastic engine/bike, lots of fun to ride, but I just couldn't get comfy on it! (EEEh if I was only 20 years younger).

Maverick has just aquired one. Seems a nice bike. We'll see how it stands up to the trails of Thetford Forest in the morning!

I've fancied one since I saw HB's but I'm enjoying the Innova to much to swap.
Once the Innova goes I'll have either the CRF or CB500X

The cb500x looks a very good bike. Me and my mate went to look at a couple, plenty of legroom which I like...seems a nice riding position.....a bike I would definitely consider.

What was the problem with the comfort...seat...legroom?

HB Has had a CB500X as well but swapped to a NC750 as not enough grunt 2 up.
But saying I very very rarely go two up the 500 seems spot on for me, low seat height as well which is nice.

the crf is lighter than the cb500, both great bikes, and the 250 is more than fast enough if you stick to speed limits. It was just a little tall for me, stretching my legs when pulling up, and the seat wasn't good on a long run, but thats just me, it was a great bike.
