    Feels good to have something Japanese back in the garage, reminiscent of my sportbike days.

    '17 WR450F.

    Has dirt wheels/tires obvi, but currently getting used to it on road with warp9 wheels and supermoto tires. Its a hoot

    This generation WR450 of YZ450fx is what I want next. What's a happy highway cruising speed? Gearing with the SM setup?

    I can sit at around 70mph without breaking a sweat really - can go a good amount faster but thats probably some unnecessary stress at prolonged amounts of time - maybe its fine, its a Yamaha.
    nice looking bike! Yea power wheelies in every gear is tempting
