If someone who had never gone dirt biking before was interested in a dual sport...what used bike would you recommend to him (or her)?
Wicking it up in the Carolina Mtns...

To be honest, I think this Yamaha would be good for a beginning dual sporter. It's not overpowering by any means. I suppose that you (or I) may outgrow it faster, but it is a pretty good all around package.
WR250R's can be bought in stock trim with very low mileage for between $2 and 3k. Tell your wife you're getting it because it gets 75 mpg, but you'd really be getting it for the fun factor.

+1, Gunny; really great bike Fred, perfect for bashing Baja boojums!
