    JR...I had a Wr250r....it is a great bike(likely the best dual sport I had), off road it was set up near perfect for me and on road and in traffic the bike was great. I sold the WR and the bike I kept was the tw, for the riding I do the tw is perfect. The TW may not be a rocket but for backwoods plodding and exploring you can't find a more suited bike.

    Well, I'll see! I'm picking up a WR250R today. As soon as I brought my TW home, my wife's first words were "Great. When do I get to ride it!"

    That was all the excuse I needed to put the plan for a second bike purchase into overdrive.

    I have lusted after the WR250R for over 5 years now. I have always wanted one, but made the mistake of purchasing the CRF250L thinking that I would be able to mod it to the point where I'd be happy. Well, after thousands of dollars of mods and 2 years everything was great except the engine. The bike simply had NO top end. That just killed it for me. Lack of top end was in no way problematic off road, but I spend the majority of my time on road and the CRF just falls flat on it's face after 7.5k RPM range. There is simply no pull up top to speak of up top. Believe it or not, but I'm much happier with the engine characteristics of the TW!

    So why the WR? I want a second bike with more ground clearance, more power (for longer, solo road trips) and better suspension. I greatly enjoy ADV type riding and the WR's ability to spend some time on the highway at 70+ mph will come in handy when I ride solo and venture north. The WR is narrower than the CRF250L and a little lighter as well. That'll come in handy when the going gets rough. The extra seat height will actually put me in a slightly less cramped position than the CRF250L while providing some extra ground clearance for all of the rocks around here. LONG days in the saddle on the TW leave me feeling beat up. It's awesome for shorter day trips and flying around town, but for the longer rides, I need to stretch out.

    I'm pumped to have 2 Yamahas back in the stable. The long term plan is to buy a second TW once our kids are old enough to jump on the back. We're both teachers, so the grand plan is to spend our summers touring the US and Canada with 2 TWs in tow. We'll deploy them once on location and will have a blast exploring while on 2 wheels.

    We have more snow coming in this week, so the my first order of business with the WR will be a gearing change (14/49). Outside of that, a skid plate, a speedodrd, some handguards and a set of bags will be the only mods I make with this bike (tires when venturing deep off road). I'll report back in with my initial impressions.

    My wife and I were "lucky" enough to buy a VW TDI back in July of 2015. The settlement money for dieselgate sure has come in handy We are going to have a fun summer.
