a year ago, I would have said "yeah, i'd buy a new wee for lack of a better option". now things have changed. the right choices now are to go "high and low" - my very shortlist is a Super Ten for 90/10, and a WR250R for everything else. The super ten is just way more capable for "what might happen" when you're riding a too-heavy bike in rough terrain. drop the wee and you have instant trouble 'cause the oil is spilling out and its REALLY topheavy. I had hoped one of these mftrs would get the clue and make a twin adv bike that comes in clearly under 400lbs. not. so if you're going heavy, you may as well go "yes heavy, but WELL capable".
