New West Houston WR250R Rider

Well I sold my R6 back in 2016 and finally cannot stand not having a bike anymore. Im going to try this dual sport thing. The idea of being able to go from street to off road and back seems interesting. Not a stranger to bikes. Had an XR200 as my first, then a KX125, YZ250, CB750, R6 and now a WR250R. Love super sports but Houston is just too boring and dangerous to ride them. The dirt bikes were great, but trucking them around sucked. So dual it is now!

Re: New West Houston WR250R Rider

Welcome to the site!

The WR250R can be ridden to Alaska and back. It's been done

http://www.bigdogadventures.com/1Alaska.htm

You can also ride in on the trails in the Sam Houston NF (if they ever re-open after Harvey...). But, you will need the OHV sticker, available at most dealerships.

Be sure to check the DS section of the forum as there are frequent rides and gatherings. In fact, there is one coming up in a few weeks,

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Welcome to west Houston and the site.. Are in katy????

Wondering, cause riding in katy/Houston is anything but boring.. We have group rides you get join in on.. We know all the roads and where all the twistys are..

Look up a group on HSBR on Facebook. Are usual meet up is Friday and Sat night at Starbucks.. 610 and westheimer.. Love to see you there.. And I can show you all the trails in west Houston.. They are very hidden and remote, so the police have a hard time harassing us there.. Lol

Re: New West Houston WR250R Rider

Welcome,

Former WRR owner, see Signature link. I also returned to DS a few years back, and Sparky opened my eyes for the last 2 years; enjoyed COBDR, Alpine Loop, MOAB, White Rim Trail, Big Bend NP, Cloudcroft NM, and lots of hill country rides.

Howdy,

As a WR250R owner, the bike enjoys the Mexican highway sans roadside boulders.
