Chilly raves about it.......that's good enough for me: http://www.enduro360.com/2012/10/18/...-first-review/

I'm heading out tomorrow morning to scout for the 2013 "CORE 4 Kids" fundraiser (I'd love to see a bunch of you there in March!): http://crawdadoffroadevents.com/core-calendar/view/87

I have a couple of local buddies who bought WR's based on my input......so I'm giving them first shot at the farkle stuff......I'll post up whatever is left in the coming weeks.......

It's been a good ride.....both the bike and this thread.....see ya out there!
Hello Crawdaddy,

Didn't commyfornia pass that registration law like up in Washington, where it doesn't matter what you do to an offroad bike you can never make it PLATEable anymore? Its great to have a full offroad bike but I still like the ability to drive it off-road and not have to trailer it there first. Besides aren't the new(2012-2013) Exc's pretty close to xc-w's; except gear ratio is not as close and has turn signals?
Well happy new year with setting up your new ride. Hope it's warmer there than it is in Tenn. 22deg.





O0ps forgot the cover lastnight
