I'll throw in my .02 as well. Having owned a KLR prior to this bike once the trails get rough and muddy there really isn't any comparison. Where the KLR felt top heavy the WR feels like a mountain...

First Studded Ride

Took the WR out today after studding it up. She wanders a bit more on the asphalt, but it's manageable and worked well on the ice. I can't wait for a little more snow to test it out some more.

Tires?

I just had a D606 front tire in the basket at cycle gear and it disappeared. Looks like the tire selection just got a lot smaller on their site. Wonder what's up?

You misunderstand, I don't care about the money. I care that a new rider cannot get into a good bike for $1500. Basically shafting someone who really wants to ride out of $1000.
