First 50 miles report 05WR45

5 posts in this topic

That wasn't a misprint "05WR45" because the last ride I took yesterday, the WR started clearing her lungs out and all of a sudden I felt like I was getting launched out the barrel of a 45 cal 1911! I own a Triumph RIII and a Duc, and they both are very respectable asphault weapons, but being back on a hard hitting dirt bike on nice damp loamy soil (yes sir, it DID rain in Wise Co Texas in August of 2005) was very different treat indeed. Man I love this thing. I must not be riding very hard though, at 210 lbs and stock suspender setup, I havn't bottomed anything yet except one egg...ohooooo, I was almost forgetting about that.oohhhhhhhh that hurts :D

Sounds impressive! Will you ride mostly trails or dualsport with it? How does it handle in loose conditions? Did you ride in any deep sand?

A 5.8 spring will make a hube difference in steering. If you are 210, the rear ride height is off with the stock spring.
