As the ex-owner of two DR3s (a '97 and a '99), I understand your loss. They're great bikes and if I could have my '99 back, I'd take it (I do like my '02 street-legal XR250R though). As for cheap...

I would say so. I paid $1800 for my 2002 XR2 but it has a lot more miles (~6K?) but is also street legal. If you could get it for less than $2K, I would say that you got a good deal.
