Bike shopping ensues

So now I need a bike, but what bike? More research. I hang around the pits, ask questions and watch. There's lots of KTMs and quite a few DRZ400s. Being a total noob I know I need a bike that won't scare the pants off me (translation - kill me). As well, after a summer of trying to learn how to handle a V-Strom off-road, I would like a bike that I can put dirt tires on and use as a dual-sport. Everything about the Yamaha WR250X appeals to me. Fuel-injected, street legal, low maintenance but still has some get up and go. As a bonus I can touch the ground The perfect bike comes up on Craigslist - a 2008 WR250X with 4200 km
It isn't long before it's mine
