Help on possible bike purchase.

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting a new 1998 ktm 620sx. I ride in WV so the terrain varies to a high degree. I currently ride a yz125 that does great on the trails. It reacts how I wish and I have a ton of control. I can climb anything I want and get around any obstacle I wish to. It is very forgiving and I can ride all the trails to the bikes fullest potential. I have had 250 two strokes which you had to be real careful on through the tight stuff and a yz426 which you just had to rip and grip. The 426 was kinda like pulling back on the throttle and holding on for dear life. What do you guys think about the 620?

Do you really want something as heavy a 620 coming of a 125?

620 is heavy and the lighter and smoother the better.

But also depends on price.

I just a bit north of Charleston wv and ride a lot. Where do you ride?

And the weight of the bike is what I am majorly questioning. I'm 6 foot 3 and 225 so I could handle I just don't know if I want to.
