Talking Brought home a WR250R

Brought this home today-

Will fix it up to ride the CDR late next summer and to/ from. Will pull stuff off like BigDog or Rick Ramsey to lighten it up. Then I plan to add a 4.7 gal gas tank with the foam to control the fuel sloshing, Seat Concepts (as on the 230L), plastic skid plate (no noise...had some with the alu skid plate on the 230L), probably some wide footpegs since I really like the ones on the 230L from XRs Only, transfer the TCI windshield from the 230L to the WRR. Probably will get some D606s on it near the dirt after using the TWs to get there. Will plan to use my Giant Loop Great Basin and 40L dry bag for my gear and camp, and will plan to camp most of the time on the Forest (free).

Got the maps, shopping and trying to understand gps- I have used map and compass since 1965 when I was a Cub Scout. I find the whole gps thing pisses me off at times...fricken $$ and add maps and bla bla- I did the WABDR just fine without a gps, not to mention traveling in the '70s AK Hwy and some BC dirt roads with just road maps. Will probably buy a moderate priced gps since I will have good maps.

FYI I would like the 230L fine on the CDR, but getting it there and shipping it and me back would be nearly 1/2 of what I paid for the WRR, and most of what paid for the 230L! The WRR will cruise to and from well enough. One day to the CDR start in MT, three days back to home from the CDR in NM. Not as likely to collect speeding tickets on the WRR like I did on the GT750 two stroke back in the day...

Thanks to the guys with great input, especially the WRR guys
