Chip Seals new set of Keys

So good to see you Sunday Chip. Been keeping my eyes open for a scooter for ya. First choice, 5 year old Yamaha WR250R. There is a good RR by BigDog / Friends. Two of the guys have them and speak highly. Over 50K on them with little or no trouble.

50,000 miles on his WR250R----the motor has never been rebuilt and runs as new---awesome---mine is right behind his.
People with gold wings and such think nothing of this---but 50,000 miles on a 250 that has been pounded from Baja to the Arctic Ocean ????
I think it needs a round of applause !!!!!



Indeed !

WR's are great!

Ran into BigDog and Dingweed in Colorado a couple of years ago when riding the UTBDR. I was with JungleMan on his WR250 as well, was fun comparing the little bikes together.

Here's a stupid walk-around of mine...

Thanks for the nice commentary Scott.
Sounds like you are putting a dead cat to use..
....as in the wind break on your camera mike on the test ride.

I like the way you have your bike set up.

You had me going with your "short cut" up the bank.
My gals in the kitchen asking what's wrong?

Here ya go Chip, magic button and all.

Hey DiggerD, looks like Scott has the same problem you do.

No automatic turn signal cancelers.

He did catch it in under 30 miles though.
