the drz has low gearing.... good off road, not so good on the hiway. I did a guy a trip with a guy that had a wr250 when they first came out a couple years ago. he's about 175 pounds & packed light. we did a bit over 1000 miles, 30% gravel roads, the rest was pavement, lots of 75-80 mph for long stretches (gps miles per hour,,,, not off the stock gage). he kept up with my (highly modded) KLR650 no problem. he was packed pretty light, but I was impressed. for real off road riding... no comparison, the WR is lighter & more maneuverable than the drz. only down side is it wants premium fuel.... it will run on regular, but it won't pull 75 up hill like it does with premium
