New to the forum but not new to Yamaha's or riding. I have been riding a KLR 650 and my wife rides an XT250. My son bought a new WR last year and I decided my KLR was just to heavy for the western mountain trails. so I bought a 2012 WR this week and am in the process getting it set up like I want it. Ordered Flatland skid plate and Spiral Step seat today. Already have Edge light kit so I am about ready to hit the road/trails. Headed to CO in July and August. Below is picture of some of my toys.

Welcome, you will like the wr250r, it will be hard to take the klr off road for sure, after riding the wrr off road, enjoy.

Thanks fiftygrit for the welcome. I am for sure going to enjoy the WR. Last year my wife and I rode a lot in Colorado but I was limited on which trails I would try. Just didn't want to get a 400 pound bike down in the back country. It will be different this summer. Below is a picture of us on the Tin Cup Pass trail.

Welcome to the site.

alot of riders are in the same boat.. i was steering away from the rabbit and goat paths on the klr mostly because i ride alone into the abyss and figured that i had only one good 400+lb bike recovery in me before i would have to hike a half day for help.
Will you be keeping the klr or thinning the herd? I have been alternating bike/ rides to try and rationalize the choice but so far have thought about nothing more than which is the most weather favorable days to ride. :hmmm: ..lol some would call that avoidance.

enjoy the new bike

Welcome thumb

I too had a KLR and switched to the WRR, its waaaaay better for where I ride, I only go on the highway for 10 minutes once in a while and have tons of difficult trails to ride on, the KLR was too big for some of the places I tried to take it but the WRR is almost as good as a offroad only bike in the trails. Very happy

I will keep the KLR for those rides that aren't back country trails, it is just too much fun to get rid of yet. My wife and ride 2-up a lot for those ridestoo. I will be getting rid of the TTR, now that it have the WR I won't need it. Decisions, decisions, decisions................
