    Default BluWR?

    Traded in the CBR today on a WR450F. I don't know if I've been craving the taste of dirt, or maybe I just wanted to get back to my roots...
    I'm not getting off the pavement completely. I'm sure I'll set up the WR for the occasional street jaunt and I still enjoy commuting when the weather is good. (I hear they are kind of fun on the track too.)
    I wonder if they make chrome parts for WRs.
    Time to change my post name.

    Welcome to the dirty side. I've been having a blast the past year and a half.

    What year? Plating that beast is easy. Give me a buzz, I have a couple of suggestions on the DS setup.

    Check out this thread and c'mon down to SA on the 17. http://bbs.tsba.org/showthread.php?t=48825

    Riding trails isn't that bad on the knees. I can imagine mx would though. I found out that 30 miles on the trails is a lot more exhausting than 375 miles on the street. Tons more fun too.

    Oh yeah, congrats. Now let's go play....

    It's an 09 but brand spankin' new. Never had the battery connected or gas run through it...sittin' on the showroom floor.
    They were dying to get it off the floor...and they had NO CBR 600s (new or used) so they were REALLY wanting to make a deal.
    Actually I didn't think they would be willing to take the deal I offered, but I was wrong.

    BTW...got it at Central Texas Powersports in Georgetown (thanks Richard!). Go see 'em, they have tons of bikes and will make a deal.

    OK. Can I come over and change tires (and rip up your yard)?

    No doubt. Hidden Falls is less than 30 miles from my house...you have a place to stay, or we could camp there (cue up the banjos ).
