So I've been absent the last few weeks from the board, uh, "hiking the Appalachian trail." I thought I could successfully sneak home a Yamaha WR250R supermoto, but my wife caught me. She said there can be only one.

Grom or WR250R.

Ugh.

It pains me to admit to all you guys that I chose the WR250R. As my only motorcycle, the Grom just isn't versatile enough for everything I want to do on two wheels. I've been going on a lot of long rides and even found a few dirt roads. The WR250R loves dirt (even more when I swap on the dual sport rims/tires), tolerates the freeway (can actually pass cars), is track ready (full sliders already installed) and it absolutely devours bumpy back roads (bonus: the seat doesn't punish me). I definitely plan on getting a Grom again in the future once more parts and people get involved. I want to see a real big bore kit, some quality rear sets and some workable suspension mods that don't break the bank. I feel like I simply caught this wave a bit too early. It's going to be a blast racing if enough people get into it.

I was able to swap pretty much straight across for the WR250R so it was a hard deal to pass up. Here is a pic of it out on my new favorite road (includes 5 stream crossings!):

The minimum number of motorcycles a person should own is two. However the correct number of motorcycles a person should own is exactly one more than they currently own.

I think you made a good choice on which bike to keep.

Not sure you made a good choice on which woman to marry. LOL I have six bikes at the moment and no heat at all from my wife. She is awesome.

Enjoy that WR.

The Grom is my second bike. It would never be my one and only. As rkwfxd above stated, I get no heat at all from my wife.

You made a good choice with your limiting circumstances.
