I always liked my Wr250x in the city. Just soooo nimble and fun to throw around on the 90 degree turns.

Regretting I a little now that I'm trying to sell it and getting no bites. Here's its harleys and sport bikes. People probably look at my wr and go wtf is that.

Who has the most miles on a WR250?

Oddly, I couldn't google a good answer for this so just thought I would ask lol. Some one has to be over 50k and I'm wondering if she needs a top end at that point. Every time im cruising along at...

I'm going with the anti crowd for the same reasons already stated. Do you see a bunch of extra bulk on the little wr250? No, me either. Yamaha didn't purposefully make it heavy to piss us off. They...

TR650 as an every day commuter?

What I REALLY want is an fz09. Two problems there. The insurance quotes I've gotten on them suck and I would miss my WR. Next on my list would be the ktm, but it costs tooo much. The TR650 is in my...

More vibes and no 6th gear. Other than that, fine.

The big deal with the WR vs the others is its actually powerful and refined enough to be an all around bike. The other 250s are trail bikes that can get on the road and be decent. The WR you can use...

The WR is an all around much better bike. Its also like you said, a lot more expensive. Honestly I would rather have a used WRR with 10k miles on it than a new CRF250L.
Personally if I were buying...

I actually like the WRXs powerband off road, a lot. I just ride it like a two stroke and use the clutch a lot. So easy and controllable. I think a lot of that though is all of the stop and go...

Hope they are better than the ones in Natchitoches. I went to those and they were all soft sand with ATV ruts. Too much work just to keep up right! Lemme know how they are and I may head down there...

Thats idiot driver 101. They can NOT get behind someone. Never never never, when they get over it always has to be in front of someone. Can't count the number of times I will be at the end of a line...

Is the TR650 to obese for dirt bike duty?

Is it too heavy for a big and tall guy to play in the woods with? I'm not trying to racing hare scrambles, I just don't want something so heavy that I spend most of my time compensating for its...

But yes, there is no motor friendly public land here. None at all despite all of the state parks, which there are a ton of. Also, don't thank the urban planners yet, they designed...

Lost me with the being challenged part. I'm sure you can find some trails over there of all spectrums, with many being too challenging for the heavy weight 990.

I too own the WR250, the 690 has always seemed like the obvious next step up and if I had the money I would have already done it.
The reason many go for the WR450 is because it can be had cheap...
