Street Legal Dirt Bike - FUN!

If you are looking for a dual sport bike that is VERY capable off-road and still allow you to use it for your commute to work then this could be the one for you. If you are an experienced dirtbiker/racer then you may not be as happy with this bike. I wanted a bike to ride where my cruiser shouldn't go. I ride the WR to the trailheads and from there can take off on forest roads, Jeep and ATV doubletracks and occasional singletrack trails. NO problems! If I need to ride roads anywhere in between, no big deal, I'm street legal. I have short legs so the 36.5 inch seat height concerned me but this bike can be lowered up to an inch by turning a nut on the lower shackle of the rear suspension. It can be lowered even more with purchase of a "Yamalink". I found no need to change the factory setting as I quickly became used to the height. Typical road use gets me about 74 mpg. - off road closer to 55 mpg. It can easily be ridden at sustained speeds of 55-65 mph. (and more). The speedometer accuracy (reads too fast by approx 10%) is my only complaint so far but I mount a portable GPS unit on it for my "adventures" anyway so I get an accurate speed from it. Gotta go ride now...

Upgrades/Accessories:  RAM GPS handlebar mount (with Garmin GPS) ZETA Skid Plate Cycra Hand Guards More to come: 12V DC outlet Tank Bag Luggage system of some sort to haul camping gear
