I have an '05 WR450F that I actually plated way back in '05. It is a pretty sweet ride. I had sold the bike back in '06 to a friend. He hardly rode the bike and it sat in a barn for the most part. I recently aquired the bike again and I would like to set it up for Dual Sport Adventure Touring....I have done some of that on an '05 DRZ400 that I also own (which now my son has kind of taken over).
What I'm looking for is advice on the following:
- I need an oversize fuel tank. The factory tank just don't cut it out there in the VA/WV mountians. Not enough fuel for between stations. I would like to see pics if possible of your WR with an oversize tank and tell me what kind it is...Just so I can see what your brand looks like on your bike.
- Saddlebags - Would love to see pics of your WR with saddlebags and tell me a little bit about how well they work/don't work. I've been looking at the Wolfman bags ($$$) and the Great Loop but I'm open to anything. I had some cheap vinyl like saddlebags on the DRZ but they won't work on the WR because of lack of a sub-frame.
- Tank Bags - again, pics would be great of your tank bag on your bike...just so I can get a visual of your brand on an actual WR.
Any advice &/or pics of this stuff or anything else touring for that matter (WR related) is welcome. This is my fall/winter project. And you know how this kind of stuff goes...it's an ever evolving project.
Thanks a bunch!
