Hi. New member here still looking for MY WR to kick off my first dual sport bike. I've been a rider (on the road) for 27 years and came to the conclusion that I am missing a lot of places I can go here in beautiful Colorado.
My search for a DS bike brought me to the WR as it fits almost all my criteria. My main reasons were low maintenance, fuel injection and fairly low weight with a fun to ride factor.

I do have a quick question. How many miles per year is the average for the WRR or WRX?

Thanks

I'm on my second wrr now but the first one I put 5000 miles on it on 7 months and the guy 8 sold it to put about the same amount on it before it's first birthday. He still has it and has since put well over 10K miles on it.

It's not the bike....It's the rider!!! It really depends on what you want to do. Are you planning to commute with it? Or just weekend rides? ?Are you going to ride to the trails or trailer it there so you're not tired when you get to the trails? etc....

Welcome to the group!

I'm with Evol. One thing that I've learned since I bought my WRR and started following forums like this is that there's nothing average about how riders are enjoying these bikes. Some are using them for day-today commuting, some for weekend adventure rides, and some for long distance extended trips. And then there are the WRX riders, some of which ride half the time in wheelie mode. Personally I only put about 1800 miles on mine last year. About 90% of those miles were in the dirt.

Yea I'm seeing everything from low mileage 08 to very high mileage newer ones. I don't seem to find many to choose from in Colorado but I have extended my search out and hope I am able to get one soon.

Any trouble areas I should be looking at? I know of the stator recall but I've read some having problems with the fuel pump.

Thanks

So I found a nice 2008 WRR with 5400miles in Dallas which I promptly picked up about a month ago.

It's stock and came with a Wolfman saddle rack, rear rack, Wolfman Enduro tank bag, Flatland skid plate, IMS tank, and Acerbis hand guards. So far I put on some MT21 f/r with rim locks, Protaper bar, and added a Wolfman Peak tail bag. I am planning on a RotoPax 1 gal for the left side rack, Wolfman Expedition saddles and DRC taillight to clean up the rear fender. I'll keep the front signals. Ugly but very visible.

Been riding as much as I can to get used to riding in dirt but the snow keeps getting in the way.

Large enough (not expanded) for my mid layers, winter gloves, snacks and other crap for the day rides but not waterproof. There is a rain cover for it but its an extra $19. All in all I'm pretty happy with the tail and tank bag (holds my phone, wallet, water, Garmin) from Wolfman and hope to say the same when I get the saddle bags for extended trips.
