Good general points. I paid $2900 for the little dog 230L in May perfect condition with 900 miles.
I have read about water pump failures on the WR250R, so a new one with Warranty may be best. Warranty especialy if I plan to go put lots of miles on the motorcycle traveling.
From what I have observed of guys riding DR 400s in the mountains, I would never have one. I would consider a DR650, great for traveling and looks less top heavy (but still a pig) than a DR 400
I would be happy to pay $7k for my air-cooled Honda CRF300L thumper that weighs <290lbs and has decent suspension.

And in regards to your "if it was a 300 with better suspension" comment,
If it was it would cost $1000 more and you fuckers would bitch it was too high strung and you could get a drz
