I've only had MT21's on mine and 908's on the rear of the 950. Have a half worn 908 I plan to finish off on the 640 as a street tire. 908 worked well on the 950
What kind of oil do you use though?

I have an Electrosport stator for a yz426 that I am willing to trade for a nice goldwing.

If you are staying out of the mud for the most part, and want to be in good shape on dirt / gravel, I wouldn't hesitate to run a D606 on the front. It may not last real long on the pavement though; they tend to turn the blocks into wedges from braking on pavement. The Heidenau K60 front looks interesting as well, but I've never run one. A little less agressive on both ends, the K761s might be an option of you are spending most of your time on road. Then there's the Kenda Big Block that look interesting for both ends as well - a bit conti like. On that note, there's always TKCs - maybe I just gave you more options than answsers

First Post

Hi, all. I've been lurking for a while, but finally have a reason to post. I bought a Yamaha WR250R today, a 2008 with only 225 miles.

I've had a motorcycle license for a little over two years and my riding has mostly been on a Can Am Spyder (me on The Dragon below). I'm pretty outdoorsy and like mountain biking and backpacking, but my riding friends have either quit or switched to road bikes and my wife no longer likes sleeping on the ground. I've always wanted a small two-wheeler and saw Swingset talking about dual sports on another forum. I eventually want a V-Strom, but decided to follow his advice to get something smaller and "ride the piss out of it."

I live in the northwest Columbus, between Dublin and Hilliard. I love riding just for the sake of riding, so I'm really looking forward to phototag. In my spare time, I'm a Warrant Officer in the Army Reserve, so I like anything to do with military history, too. Here's a write-up of my trip to Gettysburg, my first road trip on the Spyder.

I'm waiting for the original owner to pay off his lien and mail me the title, so I'll probably be a few weeks before I can venture out on the WRR. But I'm looking forward to meeting others and sharing new adventures.

Thanks,
Joe

PS - I know there's a couple of LEOs here... Is it legal for me to ride the WRR if I have the bill of sale, insurance, but it's still registered to someone else?

Welcome Joe, what a clean bike with low miles.

It is only illegal if you get caught riding would be my guess.

Welcome to the madness Joe.

Tonight I was reminded why I liked the 426 so much. My neighbors kids were out riding on their 92 acres tonight and I decided to stop over with the KLR to see what they had. Just a bunch of 80's and 100cc pit bikes. But it takes a kid sometimes to remind you how cool a KLR is. So not to disappoint I brought the 426 over to ride their track which is about five of my yards long. Once I got the beast warmed up I started cracking the throttle and wheeling the bike kicking dust everywhere. Then I was in fourth pullin hard on a straight, making it across the field in no time flat in time to break for the turn into the next field. For my grand exit I was popping the front up acrossed a small ravine only letting the rear touch on either side.
I got home just as it was getting dark and realized why I liked that bike so much. It can scare the bejesus out of you with torque and speed but it's so light and flickable to a big guy like me. I know there aren't a lot of places to ride that bike as is, but IF I get the stator and the bike is back to spec, well. I just don't know now.

Also, anyone with old size small or medium helmets or gloves that are about to go into the trash, please let me know. These kids don't have any gear so if you have something that is no longer of use let me know and I'll try to set up a time/ place I can pick it up for them. I'm sure they'd greatly appreciate it. I'm thinking I'll finally have a use for the discount area of IP to pick them up some basics so their fun stays fun.

I'm leaning towards trying the K60s or Super Explorers. We'll see. I have to find out who sells em.

Nice! Congrats.

I guess this means that I can buy the Tenere directly from EJV in couple of years without waiting for it to go through you first.

Welcome Joe! I'm pretty new here too, but I just met some of the guys on the Reservations Required ride, good people around here. Nice choice on the WR too. My buddy back home rides the same bike, and it's a fine piece of machinery. I'm not too far from ya (I'm going to school in Oxford), if your looking for people to ride with, just shoot me a PM and we could meet halfway or something.

Welcome!
