Trying to decide....XR650R vs WR450 both plated !

Hey guys,


I have a good oppertunity for either a plated 2003 xr650r or a plated 2003 wr450. I like riding desert. Mostly Ocotillo and Borrego Springs. Never been to a track and dont want to. I am 6'2" , 250lbs. with gear.

I was wondering if any of you have ridden both bikes and what you reccomend. I want to do desert, fire roads local to Orange County and some Big Bear riding. I like exploring !


Thank you in advance for your input !

The XR will be better for roads, but the WR will be better for virtually anything you can't fit a 4x4 truck down.
