You don't want a WR250R. If anything you want a WR250F. The "F" model is the dirt oriented model and in AZ is easy to street legalize. It has the dirtbike profile, travel, suspension, and ground clearance. The "R" model will require some serious mods to make even moderatley dirt worthy. First its geared to run street in the high mph range. you will have to do a big re-gear to tackle even moderate climbs. The suspension is also to plush for moderate dirt and the ground clearance is much less. You will also have to change the stock tires immediatley to have any fun. Its too much of a cost investment. Even then it will handle like a street bike in the dirt. The "R" model is like those huge BMW duals, 90% road and 10% fireroad. everything else is unattainable. Your best bet is to get the F, throw a $15 baja designs rear brake light switch on and a $9 tusk mirror and then you have enough to get a MC plate. I know because I did it. The F model will easily cruise on the roads at 55-60mph all day. And worst case if you needed more slab time, a simple change to the front sprocket +1 tooth and your in the 60-70mph range. The other downside is there are thousands of aftermarket produsct and accessories for the F model, because it is designed for dirt. The R model has very little. Good luck
