I've been punishing small bikes on some seriously sweet adventures recently. 

Great minds think alike. I've been on the hunt for something similar for a while. Tempted to WR250R as I haven't spotted one as lovely as yours and just rock the wof/rego on hold until it gets to 40 years old in 2048...

Yup seriously considered seeing Stacey Jones and financing a CRF250L they are so rad, but think I made the right decision buying the 40 y/o version of it

I owned one of them for 24 years. I bought it when I turned 14, the NZ army also used them so lots of parts off the shelf in NZ and you will come across the odd mat green one. I had a Supertrapp exhaust and custom cam by CLS cams, it would do 150 KPH.

This makes me excitable, Jeff Snr still has his xl250 from when he was a whipper snapper down south and he is keen to pull it out of retirement. Speaking to him the other day he said the biggest shortfall with them is the front drum brake, if you could find a disk brake front end out of another bike that would make a huge difference.
