what bags are these
The top bike has Dirtbags I think.
I know the bottom bike has Andystrapz Expeditionz, approx 25L a side and damned heavy duty but simple.
I run them on my DRZ400 and love them, definitely a recommended bag if your looking for simple and hard wearing.
More than 36#
But, I have seen the error of my ways!
I actually bought the Andy's Bags before Wolfman came out with his Slick Kit!
Bigdon likes the Wolfy Products !
Recently did a ride out from Colorado Springs to Azusa and back on my 2015 WR250R. No problems other than the temp light turning on as I was passing a truck through Needles. Great little bike.
Now here is some objective feed back on a couple of the more popular WR250R accessories often touted on the internet:
Flatland skid plate: Well built but makes a lot of racket refracting all the engine noise up to the rider. Someday I will drill mine out.
Seat Concepts Seat: Mine gave me a severe case of butt burn after about 75 miles in the saddle. Ended up having to buy the Coleman ATV seat cover for the ride home. When advertised as a adventure seat one would expect at least 250 miles of riding in reasonable comfort. The best Seat Concepts could to do to remedy this problem , was to offer me a carbon fibre cover for another $45. I am now experimenting with a Butt Buffer gel pad for the long highway rides.
All the other accessories did their job well as expected.
Flatland can be 100% silent- apply Rubber door gasket with adhesive backing along frame-
Tried a silicon bead along the frame rails. Didn't help a bit.
I'll go down to the garage and try and get a picture of what I applied.
Here's mine BTW-
The Wife has one too!
I can't see the pic. But since its probably a wr, I'm going to go ahead and say "thats a badass bike!"
Lake Almanor, CA
WR450f front end
ScreensForBikes (clear with white plastic dip on the backside)
GoRace Shock rework
Homemade Side racks
ECU pushed up a few clicks
I use mine to rescue orange bikes and pick up chicks along the way.
Slowly getting there.
Slow progression to the perfect adv bike but with every adventure it gets a little bit closer.
Here's mine with lovely Hyperpro suspension and prototype Kriega OS 32 panniers
Just back from 3000km in southern Morocco.

Other stuff on my website.
Economy - 550km on that tank
Lightness on the dirt - means no track is undoable
Trail Tech temp sensor - used like a 'rev counter'
Tusk rack - took a hammering
Kriega pans - the new Magadans
Garmin Montana - Nuvi meets 76CSx
GL tankbag - just right
The whole rig took the beating better than me ;-)
OE seat - big range means I ride too long w/o breaks
Brakes - on the limit with my weight/load
Mitas MC23 Rockriders - wore a bit quick for a light, low-power bike
With a hill and a headwind you're down to 45 - just like my old CRF and a KLX then
Fuel pump worries - but held up at up to 35°C
Probably should have fitted a screen
It's not a WR450R - but what is?
With do a full review on my www shortly.
Had the same issue with the Seat Concepts seat. I made the mistake of getting the standard foam. Called them & within a year of purchase they will trade out at no cost the firmer foam. Did this & night & day better. Have found them to be great people to work with.
Here ya go!
Love the bikes! Here's mine...note the barbed wire you have to ride under....it's all about the adventure!
