The little blue bike that can!

Yamaha got this one right. A fuel injected 250cc street legal dirt bike that was designed for on and off road prowess. The power is not killer like a race bike, but smooth and flowing. The suspension is pretty good as delivered with a good range of adjustment, and can be upgraded for reasonable cost. It has a steel sub-frame to support a rack, which the true race bikes lack. Load capacity is 408 pounds... on a bike that weighs about 300 full of gas. It can carry more than it weighs!  Modifications abound already, even though it has only been around since 2008.

  Ride along with me as I modify and exercise my 2008 Yamaha WR-250R. Better yet, grab your bike and come on the rides. I am easy to find.
