Congrats on WR ScottP I think you'll miss the orange bike's power but the maintenance on the Yamaha is much less

I think he's going to do a 250 shoot out comparison, he said he was going to make an offer on that Honda.

I needed to run out and buy a new pool cover so I took the WR out for a spin. First impressions.......... KTM 450 little brother! I would swear that I was sitting on a stock KTM seat Suspension was pretty nice, better that the KLR and the brakes were way more responsive without the tendency to lock up as on the KTM. The bike is very light and nimble, but a little under powered for what I'm use to. However she clips along at 65 without straining.

Standing on the pegs the handle bar were just about right.....maybe about 0.5-1.0 inch riser for a guy over six feet. Under six feet it should be perfect.

I see this being a great geezer bike once the 650 class bikes become too hard to muscle around.

OK got to go...........CB has a few chores for me.

A 2012? Off the showroom floor?

Those little birds demand a pretty dear price (to the first owners).....kinda like custom roasted coffee.

Does that mean the not so funny clown's life will not end well or he will not have much of a back side left......

That's right you better get back to some honey do's.
You would think he would be replacing my oven first. This the same oven that was not working or half working during the SMIB oyster scald last Halloween. He has not master the art of smoothing things over. Oh well, I see a new oven in my very near future.
