Two years ago I bought a new leftover 09 ktm 200 for trail riding and just having fun in the woods. Well sure enough I took up racing harescrambles in a local division in northeast Ohio. I'm nothing special but I really enjoy it. Getting podium most of the time in 125-200 class. All I hear from people is how I need a 250 or 300 now. That it will make me faster and a better racer. If I new I was going to race I would have probably got a 250 xc off the bat. But do I really need something bigger? I weigh 160. I'm on the edge of dropping money into this bike with protection and stuff, or getting rid of it in the spring and picking up a bigger bike. Deep down I feel like what I have is great for me but with so many people ( most probably not experienced) telling me I need something bigger it makes me rethink everyday. If I do keep it, what should I do to it? I'm running rad guards skid plate and bark busters.
