By FAR, it gets the most seat time. And it has as much or more time into its build as any of my custom bikes, and it's as unique as any of my custom bikes, but when people look through my garage, no one ever asks about it because it looks completely stock. Only people who ride DR's and have read my build thread are interested in hearing about it.
When I ride with someone new and they ask me what model it is I say it's a DR250 (hey, that's what the VIN says it is and if I called it a DR440 they wouldn't know what I was talking about). I was on one ride a couple years ago where we had a lot of distance to cover on some wide open dirt roads. I was flat tracking around the corners at 50-60 MPH. At the end of the ride one of they guys looked surprised and said "you can really make the 250 move."
It's a total sleeper bike.
