View Full Version : New commuter/toy

I figured since I am changing jobs, and now will have a 30 mi commute, I should pick up something that is a little better on fuel than the 13 mpg jeep. So off to the motorcycle dealership I went.45415

Somehow, this managed to follow me home, a 2012 yamaha wr250r.......... I think I like it....

Did you climb the hill next to Gillespie dam to test its offroad capability? I have a wr426 and love it.

Allen - no street bikes for me, been there - done that, still have the pin in my hand to remind me....

ehall - I did not climb the hill, but i did go under the bridge and get the tires a little dirty, its been a long time since I have ridden in the dirt, so I am taking it kinda slow... (call me a sissy if you want, cause it's pretty much true...)

Seems like you probably know the southern riding areas much better than I do, we'll have to go check those out. I've always ridden around Pleasant. I'm not street legal though...

I don't really have much experience with the trails around here, I am planning on riding from here to wickenburg via dirt roads. I am trying to find a way to get to lake pleasant by dirt road, that way I could ride from my house to prescott almost entirely by dirt road.

You'll have to go west pretty far, a lot of Peoria land by pleasant is shut down
