KingCast Presents: The KLR 250 Winter Bike! Or, in the Alternative Everything Old is New Again.


In 1986 I walked into a Kawasaki dealer and bought a brand-new Kawasaki KLR 250. It was kinda slow but arguably at the head of its class.  Nearly twenty years later that same bike was no longer anywhere near the head of its class but it sure makes a helluva great trail and winter bike so I can keep the dirt off of the Batmobile!  Next year I am thinking I'll stay in the 250 class but go to the Yamaha WR 250R. I almost bought a big ol' Honkin' WR 426 but you know honestly I bet I'll be faster on a 250 because frankly I'm just not that damn good :)
