the tenere 3aj dakar version was one of my fav bikes. a bit heavy.

the reason i like the wr is i can take it to more hardcore dirt roads,trails,jump it over logs etc.

the dr seems to need a lot of work on forks,carb jetting,tuning etc.
i am only 65kgs.and i want to hoon. my dailly commute will be tight twisty bumpy tramac.basically dirt roads with tarmac on them
You only have to read your posts on the WR to see you are already in love with it.

I think what you're really asking is the WR an adventure bike? Can you be seen as an adv rider on it? The answer is... "Buy the best bike you can afford that suits you!" For me it would be the WR over the DR any day of the week.
