Welcome. It will be interesting to hear your opinions on how the little Yamaha compares to the KLR on the highways/freeways.
There seems to be quite a few WR250R owners from the Twin Cities on this forum. In the future, we'll have to organize a ride or get together of some sort.
I just bought a used WRR as my first bike. Still getting used to things, but hoping to hit some trails this summer.
