Thanks! Yeah, its a Rigid and its very bright. I actually started with a pair, but sold one cause it was way overkill. I also direct wired the headlight with relays and upgraded the bulb and socket...puts out a lot more light.

Edit: Huh, just noticed your spitting distance from me...Im in Oshkosh.

Yup, I think I may have seen your bike or one just like it at the KMSR Field & Forest ride.

Hey GsVs, I see from your sig you have a WR250R and a DR650. Can you please give us a few lines on what you think about owning both? Compare and contrast, or whatever our high school writing teachers told us? Thanks!

I've been thinking lately the only bike that could tear my DR650 from my cold, dead fingers is a WR250R. They're rather comparable. What's the biggest difference(s)?

Thanks!

Nope didn't see that but you might have seen mine laying on its side halfway up a hill.

Good eye...yes it's a Fisher custom built seat. I love it, I was concerned with spending about the same amount of money for another cookie cutter one size fits all seat/seat kit. They asked the questions, I gave them the measurements they asked for on where I like to sit. The bike is much more fun to ride for long periods and pain is no longer a factor. They did a great job. Go to their site and check out the info sheet and order form...pretty detailed stuff.
