I put a significant amount of road miles on a WRR....just did not care for the suspension even after it was lowered, had a better seat. Just tall, skittish, and felt like it was running on it's tiptoes all the time. BUT, our german riding friend on it and my buddy on a 685 KLR did some EXTREME paved switchbacks, very fast gravel roads, and other great roads in VA & WV always 1 or 2 bike lengths apart, for miles and miles, at speeds I only dream of in my wildest fantasy.....and they love those 2 bikes. But, those 2 crazy bastards have 20 years of riding chasing each other at insane speeds thru the alps....go figure!
