Hey Joe, (That would make a great title for a country song ), I thinned my herd, replaced my CRF250X with a WR250R. Well, I guess I didn't really thin anything but it's a great bike, slightly heavier and not as snappy as the CRFx, but for the kind of riding we(?) do I think it's a better choice. I hope, the deal's done. I'm planning on taking it to Silverton, Colorado in a couple of weeks, I'll find out if I did the right thing then. Good luck finding a WRR around here. .
