I suspect your benchmark is horribly scewed by that gs hippo. Plenty of big guys racing 450s. But yes, enduro bijes are much smaller than 1000 cc cruisers - that is what makes them so good. Do you really want to ride dewidt or maybe just canal road or some such? Calls for different tools.

And wr suspension is going to be lightyears better - once set up correctly to any xr/dr

Dewildt, canal road and  maybe some gravel roads.

Just want to try something lighter than what I'm used to.

Thanks for all the info

Sat on a WR450 yesterday and I mean sat on in, I think I will sit it into the ground.

So I think the 450 range bikes are out for me.

The XR650R is awesome but the price and lack of happy button?
XR650l and DR650.....flippen ugly bikes.

Which one has the best suspension standard the XR or DR

If you sit a WR into the ground, you must look past all bikes such as this, and even the 650 class machines.

The XR650R has better suspension than the DR650 by quite a margin, but even the R lacks when compared to the WR.

Or did you perhaps mean that the WR just seems too "small"?

WR feels way to small

Good to know - thanks Chris  :thumleft:  May well look at it when (if?) my trusty and slightly battered Airman needs replacing.

Yes, we stock the Motopressor. It has a few improvements over the Slime compressor - same compressor with some changes made by the Australians...
It does do (over) 7 bar without problem, and we customer has put one through HEAVY 2 x weekly use (18 month trip up Africa, to Nord Cap), without problems.
and we offer a 12 month warranty, for peace of mind.
Cheers, Chris & Team

I have a Harley which I never thought i would. Bought it for more relaxing rides with 2IB and breakfast runs with daughter now and then. They are actually more fun than I anticipated.

Same here. I have had mine for 11 years now with 31000km on the clock. (MY first paved road only bike ever) I bought it  new in a compulsive moment.
 without ever riding one.

I soon realized it is actually an enjoyable ride and the wife would only pillion on the HD not on the GS which she hates.

I will never sell it even if it only does about 2000km a year. Suppose I am married to it now.  :thumleft:

I agree, also bought mine at the spur of the moment - wife refuses pillion on other bikes but actually enjoy the Harley

If there isn't a forum vendor to support instead then I can recommend AnimalGear.co.za. They have the Optimte 4 for R919 - Link
