My WR parking spot is finished

My three car garage, with studs and one light bulb fixture was transformed over the summer. Walled off the 3rd car stall to make a mini cave for myself and the WR. I only do oil changes, minor fixes, and some tinkering, but I like to do it on my terms. Now it's done and I'm going to enjoy this winter more than the last one.

That garage is awesome. I have a 16x25 I used to use for building traditional archery equipment. I got out of that after back surgery #2 so I am slowly transforming it back into a bike work shop. The going is much slower than I had hoped. I am definitely jealous of yours .

if I get a chance, I'll take a shot of my 8' X 10' shed, with three bikes crammed in, gas cans all over, and bunches of misc crap.

Sam's Club. If you google "Seville classics Ultra HD" you find their site. Sam's also has info on their web site.

X to R is cheaper than R to X (by about $400). Wheeling cycle supply has dirt wheels for an X for $850. I found another place that has the wheels with brake rotors included for the same price. I have a new set of MT21 tires on hand already, so it won't be too expensive. But I will probably hold off til spring and see what I think then. That will give me time to ride the WR and the KLX some more to decide exactly what I want to do. And there's a possibility that my better half will take the KLX and sell his Honda. From what I've seen so far, the KLX seems to have softer suspension than the WR, which at my weight works better off-road.

Is there any difference in the front or rear suspension between an R & X model? Is it just settings or do they have different springs/oil between them? Is the amount of travel different? I would imagine the X models are more setup for street with a stiffer ride and the R models are more setup for the dirt?

nope, same. hence the built in lowering adjustment (lower for sm, how it comes stock)

differences in monster front brake, there are.
