KLX 250 Dual Sport

I started off the summer buying the son a TTR 110 and of course I had to buy an off road bike as well. I went big and started with a WR 450 and that thing had BIG ! Trying to putt around with a 7 year old on that thing was like driving a Ferrari in a parking lot.

I downgraded to a KLX 250 dual sport and I have to say that I can not remember when I have had this much fun on a bike. I can ride on the street and jump off onto a trail and back to the street!

I always scoffed and never understood the dual sport guys until now. THese things put smiles on your face and are cheap thrills! Now I can putt with the son at a slow pace or go pretty good down a trail. If inclined, I can take her to the store.
I recommend one of these dual sport bikes to anyone.

I ain't giving up my R1 any time soon but this is fun stuff indeed!

I am with you!
IF, and it is a big IF, I decide to lay off sport bikess for a while, I have already been thinking about a DRZ. I bet that is a blast to carve corners and wheelie when the devil gets you!
Maybe its old age but the 170mph is just getting old and I would rather go a little slower in the staights and slice up the turns.

Getting the KLX has made me do some crazy thinking!

My favorite bikes out of over 40 I have owned.

5: '70 YDS-6 Yamaha-pre RD 250 2 stroke.
4: DR 650-last year without the button ('93?). Most of my friends couldn't start it so they couldn't borrow it.
3: '88 FZR 1000-my wife hated it, I kept it 7 years
2: '02 Superhawk-still have it
1: '05 DRZ-400SM-My favorite bike ever. Just got back from riding dirt passes in Colorado and love it even more now.



Honorable mentions:CBX, RZ-350 (still have), V-max, XS-850SG (55,000 mi.)

Don't worry, scrot. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick- lives.
My first bike was a 'Tard. She's a Pilot now."

Was that the 100,000 ft. ride or something along those lines? ride 10 peaks over 10,000 ft. If so my dad was there also & cant stop talking about it.

Nah. I was riding double with my wife behind me and another couple on another DRZ 400s. We rode Cinnamon, Engineer, Stony, California, 2 others that I can't remember the names, and part of Black Bear pass. All over 10K feet but none an organized ride. The highlight of the trip was a ride up to clear lake, west of Silverton.

Be advised-most of the counties in SW Colorado now require insurance and a drivers license even for dirt bikes and ATVs. Dirt bikes and ATVs also need a Colorado sticker available at most bike shops there.
