XxR600 fun factor

I have an opportunity to pick up an 98 Xr600r.

I ride in eastern woods and a few H\S per year.

I know it's a good racer, but would you owners / riders If its a fun bike to ride

For example , a klx450r Kawasaki dry weight is 125kg ( 274 lbs) almost identical to the dry xr6 276 lbs

I've been riding a 2001 Suzuki DR400 for the past few years and have gone back to the 600R. I feel it handles better, has much more power and feels lighter for some reason. Maybe it's the seating position and lack of the extra electric starter and extra accessories the Suzuki has to carry. I installed a Baja Designs lighting kit on my 600R and love it. I do miss the electric start on the Suzuki.

I dont try anything else, so I"m naive. I just try and perfect the only thing I know.

Same here, been so long since I've ridden a race bike that I don't miss anything about it
