What kind of riding?

Always using it for dirt riding, aggressive riding with the buddies who are all riding aggressive dirt bikes with plates? TE310 for sure...light weight, good suspension, powerful, fairly low maintenance and problem free, great performance, sucks on the street for anything but connecting trails.

50/50 dual sporting, with commuting/exploring/adventuring on the menu...WRR is a great bike for that. Heavier, less power, and crappier suspension compared to the TE, but this will only be an issue if you're going out in hard/aggressive dirt with your buddies every week.

sounds on par with what others have said. also the range on the 310 is very limited right?

Yes. Both need a bigger tank, but the WRR gets far better gas mileage.

I've gotten anywhere from 45 to 60 miles out of my stock TE tank.

And when i had my WRR, i was allways getting 40/45 mpg... If you keep the rpm's high, WRR drinks too.
