The first Yamaha WR250R X rally

The first WR250R/X rally Are you a fan of Yamaha’s WR250R/X? Then don’t miss this chance to ride with like-minded owners of the bulletproof singles.

Most who have ridden the quarter litre thumper rave about its ability to go harder for longer. Whether it’s on the road or in the dirt, the WR250R and X model motard have won a host of friends, including RideADV head honcho Greg ‘Giant G’ Yager.

Following his unsupported double Simpson Crossing on a WR250R, the adventure guru has organised a rally for riders of Yamaha’s four-stroke gem – the first of what could turn out to be many events.

The first Yamaha WR250R/X Rally takes place from 26 to 28 May at Cessnock Showgrounds.

The weekend will include one adventure/trail ride for WR250R riders on Sat and another on Sun and two road rides for X owners at the same time. All four rides will be lead and swept by RideADV team members.
