Nice!   Did the steering stabilizer really make that big a difference?   I use them on quads, but I've still never used one on a dirt bike.  


The difference for me is huge, especially on this relatively tall top-heavy bike (compared to most dedicated dirt bikes.)  The stabilizer significantly reduces front end deflection and associated wandering from hitting roots and rocks, especially in conditions like the steep mile-long rock garden shown above.  Deflection is even more of an issue, with higher penalty points, when riding single track trails with significant exposure like we have in much of Idaho.  The stabilizer also helps prevent head shake at highway speeds.

I originally installed the stabilizer on my WRR and quickly took it for granted as I forgot what it was like to ride without it.  Then I bought the Beta two-stroke, moved the stabilizer to that bike, and neglected my WRR for a few months.  When I started riding the WRR again without the stabilizer I was quickly frustrated with the difference in front end handling between the two bikes.  For the ride above I swapped the stabilizer back to the WRR and was immediately happy again.

I love it on my Beta also, especially in conditions like shown in the short video below.  I'm thinking about buying a 2nd stabilizer so I can have one on both bikes full time.

That looks like fun! I've always liked stabilizers on quads, and would like one on the WR, just trying to cost justify it. Mine has been languishing since summer. Been busy with other projects, and things to do on weekends. Another trip next weekend from Friday until Sunday, then hope to be able to at least get a ride or two in before winter hits.

Always waiting to see your next post to see where you went off exploring. I wish we had places like that around here.

It's been a long cold winter in Idaho.  The ski area on the mountain above Boise still has over 100" of snow but things are starting to thaw and melt at lower elevations.  Yesterday my wife and I enjoyed 40 miles or so along the Owyhee Front south of Boise, ranging from 2900' to 4200' elevation.  It's still early in the riding season but it felt great to be out and about on the WRR again.



The great thing about riding with an ATV is that the quality of lunch and liquid refreshments goes up noticeably!

A few pics from a Monday afternoon solo ride in the SW Idaho high desert.  A well-sorted suspension and steering stabilizer make this bike a true joy to ride in this terrain.

Great weekend of springtime riding with my wife and her ATV here in SW Idaho.
