Thanks for the acknowledgement Dave. I like the Badlands because it is close to home. But I prefer to ride on Kentucky's Daniel Boone forest for my full weekend rides. I have finally got the bike where it needs to be. I have taken 4 months to get all the mods and set up to my liking. I agree this bike is an awesome mud slinging hill climbing monster. The bottom end suits my riding style and terrain very well. Hope every one is happy with their WR450. Mods for the most part are a personal touch.
