Advice 1995 DR 250 Dual Sport

There is a local in my area that has a 1995 DR 250 dual sport up for sale. The pictures look pretty good, 13000 miles. Fella is asking 1300 for the bike. I can't find much info on this model on line as it is a 20 year old bike. I have contacted the guy and I hope to take a look at the bike asap. Intended use would be 50/50 back roads and trail riding. Im thinking this bike should be reliable as those mid 90's zuks have a pretty decent reputation. For those of you who have owned one, are they decent 50/50 bike? any known problems I should be worried about? Any feedback/advice would be appreciated . Thanks,
John C.

Don't know the 250, but the 350 is the same bike with a slightly different engine and they are excellent bikes.

Bike absolutely fits 50/50. Good for up to 55mph, just don't hold your breath while waiting to go any faster. Plenty capable on trails/gravel, and is quite fun on the back roads. I picked mine up for a few Bens less then what you're looking at, but it also needed some TLC.
