Oddly I found it just as crappy in the western UP, which is mostly rocky.

Kalani you idiot.
Bout ten, no two seconds into your video thought sure my ears would bleed if I watched the whole thing. Or I would vomit which ever came first.
Watched the whole thing anyways. Glad I did. Highly entertaining and it was great. What a hoot.
Thanks.
I have a GoPro still in the box that I don't even know how to use yet. Also have a WR that needs to get filmed. Wayyy different mods than yours. Set up for adventure touring. Nearly complete.

Can't I do both!?

I wonder how much people spend on their addons? 1/4 the price of the bike? More? MUCH more? I'm in for half ATM.

Nice riding Indypup on your 2 hillstarts at 5:20. Those stopped riders were probably a bit envious of your skill (or blue bike)

Yeah, I don't know what the deal was with those guys. It was really loose loam so they might have spun out. ;)

I wanted to blast by them all but didn't have room.

Forgive my heretic status (no WR250R yet) but what I liked most about your video was hearing an engine that makes power at a reasonable rpm. My KLR250 would be screaming running at 2000 more rpm than your bike. This fall I'll be riding blue. I can't wait.

You know, lots of people say they have to rev the WR high to get it to perform, but that's exactly the same RPM band I'd be in in the same trail conditions. I think the bike has plenty of grunt off-idle with just a "mild" gearing (13/47) and exhaust upgrade. Granted, I'm not "fast" but that's where I'd be riding.
