WR250R in Portland OR Area I can take a spin on?

I'm curious if anyone in the Portland Oregon (Hillsboro to me more exact) area would have a WR250R I could take a spin on. I'm seriously considering one of these little wonder machines, but at 6'3" and 260 ( decreasing thiugh) that I might be too much for it on a light Adventure bike service. I've read that it would be ok as long as I understand its limitations, but mentally I'm having trouble reconciling myself to that. Anyway, hoping a spin on one would cure or at least enlighten me to if it will work or not.

If you are ever in the Camas area, let me know. You can take her for a swing but street riding only gives you and idea. I think I would want more power* edit: torque at 260lbs but more power, more $ and the wr does ok.
