Me, Mike, Z@ch (techically still qualifies), Alan, armyjoe, benly, blackdiamondmike, indypup....

Now, how many WRR owners used to own or still own KLRs?

It's delicious kool-aid though. If I find one for the right price I plan on unloading my KLX250 for one.

Guilty of both
I foresee parting ways with the KLR, though. The WRR handled the road to Flint Ridge & back yesterday just fine. I think I'll probably gear it down a smidge. It goes faster in 5th than 6th, not enough power to pull the stock gearing at an indicated 86 mph.
BTW, rear tire recommendation? It has a 25% left T63 now, I haven't had it in anything slick yet, though. I have 244s on the KLR & think something a little rougher is fine for the WRR.

Well, having ridden a few now I know it's not the right bike for me. Besides I have the 950 SE. What more could I want?

People over 6ft and 150 lbs I guess. But it's okay, you wouldn't like the 950. Your feet wouldn't reach the ground until you fell over.

I dunno... Yeah, you'll be changing more oil and checking valves...but I'd bet the pee-pee tingle you get when you're on the dirt just might make it worth it. 26lbs lighter, and double the HP to the ground and way better brakes and sproingers. Of course, you'll be writing a lot bigger check.

Slap a plate on, bulletproof motor, EFI, a little lighter than the WRR and lots more balls.

Does it really matter when most of us can get embarrassed by a better rider on a lesser bike?



and you'll really like this one starting around 2:30


and you can see my bike with its previous owner waiting on his nephew at 2:45

Then there's the knowledge that our modern bikes are capable of so much more than we ever will be.


or that you might still have to work to hang with a guy twice your age

Well, I'm sure Brad Pitt could land a way hotter chick than I can, but I still want the hottest one I can get.

For my own pleasure, when I'm riding it, it matters. Girl or bike.

Oh, and cost/maintenance matters too. Girl or bike.
