Agree that a CRF250L would be almost the perfect choice for a lighter (lady) rider. Had one for about half a year in 2012 before trading it for a NC700X. The CRF was a cool scoot even on the highway where it would run 100-120km/h all day long.Saw 159km/h once on a long downhill with the wind pushing from behind tucked into a streamlined position. Front suspension is pretty good only let down by a too soft rear shock. Not an issue though for a rider sub 65kg. A 250L would tick a lot of the boxes. Better long distance bike than a DRZ by a mile.
