Hey Rohar, Ever since the divorce all I do is ride. Lot of atv trails and wide open roads where you can cover a lot of ground. I am not a big fan of tight woods. My bars are 36" wide great for sand and desert type riding which I prefer. I just live in the wrong part of the country for that. WR450 is awsome.

Picked up mine on January 31st of this year. 2500+ miles, no failures with anything on this bike. Heck, I never even had the flywheel bulletin performed.

Hey, Dave are you going to add some new Moab clips from your recent trip on your web site? :D I went a week later and it was my first time and it was totally awesome! :)

No problems here! Ran fine out of the box. Went up one size on the main and pilot, did some air box mods and WAHOO!!
I taunt my friends with the E button and use it all the time. 1600 plus miles so far and no worries.
