I think you'll like the bike a lot. I've been critical of it but have always closed comments with it is what it is and what it is ain't bad off road or on. And thats pretty hard for a 250 to pull off. One of the reasons I haven't been more aggresive trying to sell mine is..I'd still like to have it around. I like my KLR but the WR is light years ahead of it in brakes, suspension, and power when both are in the meat of their power delivery. And I like the KLR. Not knocking it. Dual sport bikes probably get nit picked more than most because they're asked to do a lot more.

That'd look sick on a shirt logo

If you can help I'd appreciate it!
Are you still looking for photos???

You can change your settings. It's only 192 pages on my computer. It's the same number of posts, but a lot faster to scroll through fewer pages.

Tour Master Super Mini Tank Bag with the strap mounting

I picked up a Tour Master Super Mini Tank Bag with the strap mounting system and it works really well and only $62.99.
I went for the black but it is available in blue!

See here I used the seat to tie off of. :

It fits my Sony handy-cam with room to spare.




I picked it up from
Motorcycle superstore
So far so good!

AC-10 front and back

I just installed a set of AC-10's and I like them.
I have used an MT-21 front and a Trackmaster2 rear on my old 450exc which did OK
On my 640 I have a pair of D606's and they did great on the trail and on the street it did no do well in mud.
I just picked up and installed a pair of the AC-10's and they could tell first that it turns faster than the TW's and are great in the mud!

Late delivery from Brown Santa

Based on the advice of Crawdaddy, it looks like I have something to work on this week!

I called GPR about the proper part for WRR and they never called me back. So that is the number at the bottom of the pkg there? I have hwy guards coming so maybe I will just wait to be sure but I am supposed to have plenty of room under the 2" risers. I should be sure the cables are squared away before ordering.
