Tabarnac man, I've had a close call like that, it's dang scary.
Always a good reminder this time of year to be extra careful! Mine wasnt super close but they usually dont run solo either.
Day 3 (of 3) riding the Pine Barrens 500. On day 1 we had six riders in our group. There were two of us on WRRs and four friends on other bikes. Today, it was just two of us left... on WRRs... just sayin.
That sounds about right! Looks like a lot of fun!

My son just got a ‘18 YZ250F. Bought it for a steal ($2200) and we are sorting it out. Very similar to the WR so I thought I would ask here.
It smokes just a bit on startup but clears out within a minute or so. We have been told this is normal. We are under the belief it is fueling and we are just riding it. No oil consumption to note so far.
I plan to help him check valve clearance mid November when I can stabilize in NC.
Welcome, actually the F series bikes are very different the the R’s. Complete different motor more power but shorter maintenance intervals. Lots more others will chime in with I’m sure.
As for smoke here my shortcut, blue smoke is oil, black smoke is excessive fuel. I’m sure there are exceptions. Regardless glad you have a kid to go ride with enjoy the hell out whatever it is!
+1 on crazyal's post.
Ring(s) are a usual suspect with smoking, which is not normal in my opinion. My WRR (different motor) has never smoked at startup or running since I bought it in 2008. Maybe check the plug in the mean time for a clue. Good luck and riding with my son has been some of the best riding ive ever done!
Blue smoke on startup that goes away usually indicates valve seals. Relatively cheap fix.
Tamihi Creek with Dan The Punisher Sunday. Good times!
There looks to be a bit of an elevation change ,
I love the Jersey pine barrens and hope to do the ride next year.
Looks super fun. Where does everyone stay between each days riding ? Atsion camp ground and hotels I would guess ?
Those are dirtbike trails. The WR will do it, but it's not ideal. Dan's Husky 350 was awesome here
I'd like to have a Husky or KTM 350 but I'm not ready to give up the WRR's wide range of D/P capabilities ... yet .
try tire iron.
where else you gonna store it?
^^^ That’s clever!!
Bueller? Bueller? … anyone?
I will second that! I am firmly in the one bike camp. My WRR takes me anywhere I want to go and most importantly, gets me home every time. On the street or in the dirt 12+ yrs running. Love my WRR!
The WR has a lot of extra electricity.
I don't have lights on the WR but I do power a heated jacket (90 watts IIRC) and USB power for phone/nav. I doubt you're going to ever run out of electrical power on the WR. (See this post: https://advrider.com/f/threads/battery-charging-running-heated-gear.1025244/#post-25563443).
While I don't have aux lights on the WR, I do have them on another bike and for that one I went with Baja Designs Squadron R Sport round LED's. Built like a tank and while they aren't cheap, they are not the price of some other brands.
Did you just replace the main headlight, or run this additionally? Thank for the reply to you and Yinzer
