PostSubject: So the day finally came, both sad and happy   Sun Nov 26, 2017 4:04 pm

Last Friday it eventually happened - the WRR was handed over to the dealer and the first ride with my own Husky followed.
Only some 30 minutes to bring it home, now it will stay in hibernation till spring. Oh how I hate the cold months of the year  GAHHHH

I really liked my WRR and it wasn't easy to let her go. Such a formidable, reliable, good looking and cheap-to-own bike.
One of a kind, there is nothing else like it. I've made quite a few changes, especially the 57t sprocket really made a difference.
And there was no ride I didn't enjoy. Only one thing, the black spot on the shiny surface, so to speak. The lack of power.
Sure, 95% of the time it's alright, but with a rider @210lbs it always struggled at higher speeds. Overtaking? Sometimes a challenge.
I had many bikes over the last 30 years, including "beasts". But none of them I liked as much as the little WRR. But hey, you guys know what I'm talking about.

Some of my buddies ride more powerful enduros and since one them got a Husky 701 this year, I couldn't get it out of mind. But my worst idea was to ride it....   baldy  
It felt as nimble as my WRR but good lord, the power! The POWER! Turn the throttle just a little bit and it unleashes hell.
After that, nagging started. I still loved my WRR but it felt so underpowered now. Still I wasn't ready to fork out the money. Why exchanging a bike you like for another one?
But then......did I mention the power of the Husky? I checked out a dealer some two weeks ago and he made a good offer for my WRR and a good price for a 2018 701.
Asked the wife for permission and she said....yes  wings
Guess I'll have to bleed for that some time in the future......

Anyway. Thanks to my WRR. Will keep a place in my heart forever. And thanks to all you guys here in the forum, it was such a wonderful source of information.

CU on the road!

Wow, awesome bike, congratulations! I think most WR250R riders would welcome more power at one time or another but as you say that's pretty much it's only drawback. Enjoy!

You know I recently went to purchase a new 701 and instead picked up a WR250R.

The 701 looks good on paper but for what I wanted to do with it the WR is awesome.

Enjoy the 701!
