Oops, posted this in the Classified section by mistake so here it is again.

Well I tried to find a reasonably priced TW 200 in the area (eastern Wisconsin) but had no luck ($2900 for a 2009 with 1650 miles, $3300 for a 2010 with 250 mi used for motorcycle training class, etc) so I started looking at other dual sport bikes and bought a 2008 Yamaha WR250R (fuel injected, liquid cooled, very good suspension etc) in very good condition (a few scratches on the plastic) with 547 miles ridden by an old man like me (paid $3600 so not too much more than the TWs for sale here currently). In 2008 a new WR sold for $2100 more than the TW so with the low miles I think I did OK. I was looking forward to the wide tires on the TW but all I read about the WR says it is a very good bike also. I look forward to spending time on it. Anyone have experience on a WR?

No, but I'd really like to get one. Let us know how you like it.
They have incredible power for 250's so I'm sure they're much better suited on the highway...I wouldn't recommend one for solely offroad though unless you're 6'5" or taller...even then a TW might be better.

I sat on one at my local dealership. I'm 6'2" with 30" inseams and I couldn't put both feet down at once. I could only touch the ground with my toes with one foot only. I hear that the bike has a built in one inch lowering bracket. I'd probably have to use it. Love the TW though but I just keep dreaming of a WR.
