New member here from Westmont, Illinois. After going round and round in my head between various KTM's and Husky's, I finally decided to pull the trigger on a WR250R. I found one relatively local to me - a 2008 with 2500 miles on it. Completely stock but with a missing right side mirror and a crazy speedo.
This is my 11th motorcycle since I started riding in 1994. I do all my own work on them and am looking forward to setting this WR up to suit my needs. My family has a cottage in Traverse City, and there is some amazing off road riding up there - so next spring I'll be putting a lot of miles on this bike up there. I've also been wanting to ride the T.W.A.T. route through Wisconsin up to Lake Superior, and after canceling last year due to a broken elbow, I'll be making that trip this spring.
