If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, video should serve better then my verbage.  Needless to say living in the desert, winter is a non issue.  I went looking for some snow/ice/mud in the Santa Rosa mountains with the WR250r on Saturday, and found a little.  I'm not that well versed  Embarassment.

Nice Bigok  wish that was our version of winter...

Next week, our pair of WR250Xs (on their dirt wheels) will be in Moab enjoying somewhat similar conditions. Bigsmile

Thanks.

I just read your ride report from your last Moab trip.  Great write up and photos, looks like a must do.  I haven't done any DS "trips" yet, but a Death Valley trip is in the works pretty soon.

Nice stuff!  I'm green with envy.

As someone who crashed his KLR 650 enough to become proficient, I'd pass along the friendly suggestion to not stick your hand out to catch yourself when you go over.  Yeah, it's an automatic reflex, but it's also a receipe for a broken wrist.  Smile

Man that WR250 looks like a hoot!  What a great ride and video.  I keep thinking in the back of my a used WR250 would be a blast to have; scratch the dirt itch I still have after selling my KLR.  I pingpong between the WR250 and DRZ400.

But enough about me.  Appreciate the cool video; that was some gorgeous country and looked like an awesome day.   Thumbsup
