Oh snap! I just checked out the wr250r and it is an awesome bike. too bad it's a bit out of my price range.
I called the guy who had the KLR250 for sale and it is sold.
That got me looking around for other options and I came across the newer KLX250 which is a dual sport, found a 2007 for $2000. Still more than I wanted to spend but seems like a great bike, how is it different from the KLR? Then I saw some new (2009) Sherpas and starting thinking about them, found one a good distance away in pristine condition for $3100. Which got me to thinking maybe I could search for one even if it was 500 miles from me, if I saw a good deal I could fly out there (I have a one way free ticket voucher) buy the bike (put up the $3000 even though it is twice what I allocated for a bike) and ride it home. Does that sound crazy?
