    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. <TABLE id=post22675438 class=tborder cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=4 width="100%" align=center border=0> <TBODY> <TR vAlign=top> <TD id=td_post_22675438 class=alt1 style="BORDER-RIGHT: #575757 1px solid">Quote:

    Dingweeds passes me----does a u-eeeee and pulls over----what the heck ????
    He's poking at his speedometer I think----and taking a picture of it ????

    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 !!!!!

    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..:huh:huh
    ....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.:eek1:eek1

    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.
