In Brazil it looks like they get a 250 Tenere too.

Too bad it is not WR250R based, looks cool though.......Of course they also get the 1200 & 660 too.

I've done the ferries through Pelee Island to get from Ontario to Ohio. It's a pleasant ride and saves time and mileage to get back home. Not too much to see on the island, though, but it's worth the trip to save some time and distance, plus you can avoid Detroit or Buffalo. And I remember us motorcycles got preferential treatment (come to front of line) for boarding on the ferries. Nice.

Like weight matters to you.


I can see it being 45 pounds heavier than the WRR.

Plus if it is "wet" & has a 4 gallon tank there is 1/3 of your weight right there.

Looks like it'd be a good thing to replace the XT250, more like a modern Super Sherpa.

My ST appears to be sold Now the search begins for a replacement and have been feeling the pull towards a Bavarian Boxer. Am I out of my mind?

Also, we recently replaced the youngest kids car and we now have a 2001 Ford Escape XLT 4x4 V6 for sale. It has 4 new tires (less than 100 miles) and will have a new wheel bearing installed next week. If anyone is interested in more info shoot me a PM. To alleviate any concerns he's only been driving it for a couple months . My wife had it up until then.

Just throwing this out there, I don't think dox is having his campout this year.

Want to see how many might be interested in a September campout two miles north of Tar Hollow.
I've got two acres out there, with some additional tree-covered land available adjoining. Bathroom, electric, water, shower, fridge,tools available.
Pitch a tent or bring a camper. Prolly some floor space, too.
Laurelville is about 5 miles out the road, so supplies and beverages are close by.
I've got two gas grills for cooking, along with power for any other cooking devices we need.

Many of you know some of the trails around Tar Hollow, so I'm sure we can get someone to lead rides. Gravel roads in T.H. and nearby Scioto Trails if that's your fancy, plus we can find plenty of twisty pavement, too.

Anyway, post up if you are interested, we can make it two nights, just in case you're coming far and want to get additional riding time.
We could shoot for Sept. 6, 13, or 20, and make a rain date.

Thanks,
Mark
