How did the WR's do on lower octane...any issues?? If they are having issues (pinging, etc.), I'll take the DR....since it'll run on anything But, I'd prefer the WR due to it's weight, etc. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the highjack, but your input would really help.

Great writing/pix by the way!!!
The WR would be more fun on the rougher sections, but then Mike had no problem with his KLR650, and I mainly had problems due to my experience level.

All Pemex's had 91 octane, maybe the other guys can chime in about fuel, they might have had to go with lower octane one time???
