Anybody around Wenatchee have a WR250R?

Wife think she wants one, we'd like to look at/talk about it..... maybe she could ride it around the block?

Pretty good bike, I had one for a while. I like the 690 more though that I currently have.

The wr is pretty tall. Weights about the same as the 690 too. Power is really smooth.

I didn't get any bites when I was looking for one, so I'll offer even though I'm a ways away. If you want to come out to Seattle or are coming here for something else, you're welcome to try mine. PMs go to my phone.

I'm hoping she likes it, because if she gets a 250 I get a 450.

Gregulator, she'll be in Seattle later this month, maybe.... I'll talk to her tonight.

I have one. I'm currently in Mount Vernon. Will be moving to Bellingham mid September if all goes well. I know its not too close, but I am fine with her taking a short spin on it.

I just bought a 09 WR250r for my wife, she loves it. We are up in Ferndale but you are welcome to take it for a spin on the road and or in the field. I did a fair amount of research and they are a great "small" dual sport for the money. Very mellow but more than capable on the freeway. If height is a concern there are lowering links available which help a lot.

Hi Ray!! How the hell are ya! Missed you at the Enterprise rally.

WR250s are not slow, if they're ridden by a madman.
