I Entered my first southern california desert race last weekend! Had a great time and the WR426 was incredible. I rode in the Novice 4 stroke class which put me out for two 40 mile loops. Needless to say I was thrashed at the end of the race but everything about the WR made the race so much fun including a 10 mile 5th gear stretch that I was able to test the top speed on. I finished mid pack someplace and very happy with that as my goal was just to get the checkers at the end of day.
