I will not be riding it at Michaux this year. It's brand new, I'm not used to it, it has no skid plate, etc. The 450 is my Michaux bike.


I will be selling the Wee soon. I think it's over 80k, now. No real issues with it, but a few items I want to clean up before I put it up for sale.

Does he have an 1190 maybe? The 1090's came out in late 2017.

Opps, you're right. Actually, he has the 990. I knew it was one generation prior to the 1190 (which another friend has.) Also had a 950SE that he just sold. I was confused about the lineage until I saw some of them together and could see the differences. I confused his 950SE & 990 all the time until I finally saw them together and the light bulb in my head went off. I thought he had only one big bike for the longest time :shrug:

Very nice bike and a serious adventure machine. These bikes will consume all your motorcycle money on protection parts, luggage racks and bags, and electrical farkles. Might as well get started with all the UPS deliveries so you can get it off in the woods.
2018 WR250R (for the single tracks)
2016 R1200GS (for the epic adventures)
2016 1290 R (for the inner hooligan)

FE250 weight 255# and HP 40ish (Fuel injected)
DRZ weight 300+# and HP 35ish (5 speed)
KLR weight 400# and HP 35ish (tank)

The little 2fiddy moves right along.
