    At the dealership right now picking it up! Not too tall at all. My CRF250L after mods was just as tall. Ergos are much better on the WR for me. Wish it wasn't 20 degrees with snow up here right now - I'd be out riding today!

    Ah, once again the CRF250L sneaks into this forum. I do understand it. I own both (TW and the 250L) and will keep both for now. Here in Montana the 250L is a great back country Rocky Mountain explorer. Allows me to wander further easier amongst the thousands of miles of Forest Service and County Roads. But anytime the roads gets "more interesting" the TW is my first choice. Both of my bikes bikes have rear racks, hand guards, bar risers. The 250L has been lowered 2"(I am 250 lbs., 6' tall and like to flat foot it on stopping).

    As I have said before I feel lucky to have both but if I could only have one the TW would be my keeper. The smiles it brings to be could be considered reason enough. Such a comfortable, able bike in the mountains here and even nice for easy commuting in town.

    As to the WR250 I have known a few people with them here in Montana purchased for the very reasons mentioned in this thread. These riders all seem to be the sort that the generous power in the WR250 ends up not to be enough after a season or so and they sell and move on. Very much a case of YMMV!

    In any case enjoy the ride all, no matter the bike! Rudy in Helena, MT

    I hear you there man. In the end, we're all just fortunate to be out there riding and enjoying life. A Honda ruckus would put a huge smile on my face (I'd love to own one of those too!)

    I put 50 miles on the WR tonight. What a bike! It certainly lives up to the hype. That being said, the TW ABSOLUTELY has it's advantages; for in town riding/bombing, I'd take it hands down and it'll be my go to bike for "Shasty McNasty" backwoods exploration. The WR will serve as the perfect ADV bike (for me) though; I LOVE the ergos and extra power. The seat is about 10x more comfortable than what people make it out to be too. Granted, I'm used to spending hours on end on a bicycle saddle, so just about any motorcycle seat will feel like a couch by comparison
