Having said all this, today I went to the Cleveland motorcycle show today. Sat on lots of bikes. The CRF and the KLR650 were the only two bikes there that allow YOU to decide where your ass will be on the seat...everything else locked you into essentially one position. I HAVE made a proper decision buying this thing. Also...sat on a STOCK WR250R...tall, tippy, nasty, and if you think the CRF seat is ass-unfriendly, don't even get close to the WRR. With the WRR you are perched on top of what I consider an unpleasantly stiff top heavy bike, with a seat like an oak plank. My buddy has spent $$$$ to make his WRR much less tall, hard and nasty than stock.
Thank you, Ed. I always enjoy reading your helpful, insightful posts.
