I see the problem, Germans are assholes.
Well I was able to work some deals to sell my vintage Hondas and the KLR towards a new bike. Sorry Buildit, looks like I will not be buying your YZ. Thanks for the info you sent me and good luck finding a home for it. I didnt really plan on buying something new but sometimes things just come together in such a way that it makes justifying buying something shiny & new feasible, or at least close enough for me to rationalize it is feasible. My decision to buy new was definetly swayed when the dealership let me take a couple of the bikes out for test rides.

Its been a little over 3 weeks since my mishap on the KLR and I saw the ortho today. He said my separated shoulder was recovering well ahead of schedule so as long as I can get out of work by 6:30 PM today my plan is to get down to the dealership to sign the paperwork and ride home on a new WR250R. Hardest part now will be to resist taking the bike off road until my shoulder heals some more. <o></o>
Congrats on the new wrr. My KLR gets little off-road use since I got my WRR three years ago. -Mike
How many WRRs is that in ADV OH now?
Me, Mike, Z@ch (techically still qualifies), Alan, armyjoe, benly, blackdiamondmike, indypup....
Now, how many WRR owners used to own or still own KLRs?
It's delicious kool-aid though. If I find one for the right price I plan on unloading my KLX250 for one.
Guilty of both
I foresee parting ways with the KLR, though. The WRR handled the road to Flint Ridge & back yesterday just fine. I think I'll probably gear it down a smidge. It goes faster in 5th than 6th, not enough power to pull the stock gearing at an indicated 86 mph.
BTW, rear tire recommendation? It has a 25% left T63 now, I haven't had it in anything slick yet, though. I have 244s on the KLR & think something a little rougher is fine for the WRR.
Well, having ridden a few now I know it's not the right bike for me. Besides I have the 950 SE. What more could I want?
Does this one need some body work too?
Who needs orange...
People over 6ft and 150 lbs I guess. But it's okay, you wouldn't like the 950. Your feet wouldn't reach the ground until you fell over.
I dunno... Yeah, you'll be changing more oil and checking valves...but I'd bet the pee-pee tingle you get when you're on the dirt just might make it worth it. 26lbs lighter, and double the HP to the ground and way better brakes and sproingers. Of course, you'll be writing a lot bigger check.
Those WRR's are sweet till an orange flash goes by them.....
Or mebbe something in between?
Slap a plate on, bulletproof motor, EFI, a little lighter than the WRR and lots more balls.
Does it really matter when most of us can get embarrassed by a better rider on a lesser bike?

and you can see my bike with its previous owner waiting on his nephew at 2:45
Then there's the knowledge that our modern bikes are capable of so much more than we ever will be.

Here's me passing that KTM 350 XCF-W that I want.

Well, I'm sure Brad Pitt could land a way hotter chick than I can, but I still want the hottest one I can get.
For my own pleasure, when I'm riding it, it matters. Girl or bike.
Oh, and cost/maintenance matters too. Girl or bike.
