At 5'10" 200 I took my XR650R out riding with my boy this weekend on his XR80. All I kept thinking about was selling this monster and getting a lighter more flickable bike because Im going to be riding with him from now on hopefully for a long time. Ive thought about both of these bikes and on paper I guess the WR250 seems better. I sold a WR450 last year and I do like the power but this Im getting older and would like to slow down to a 250. I do alot of city driving to so how is the WR? 6 speed, whats it top out at and how is the torque down low like lugging around in the woods? I know it wont be like my 650 now but I dont expect that, I just want to putz around on a lighter flickable dependable bike with my kid anymore. I dont need a bigbore anymore at 41 and falling apart already, I was even thinking of going back to an XR400 but I want a magic button anymore too.
