My wife has had a year of riding now on her KLX140L and has become a good rider.
The only problem is she's watched too many Graham Jarvis videos and wants a Gas Gas contact or a Beta Evo Sport. She's leaning heavy towards the Gas Gas with electric start.
She's 5'3 so full size enduro bikes are out. Been there and done that, it didn't work.
We ride single track and mostly slower technical stuff. She isn't a fast rider already so going slower would be hard to imagine.
Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!
Decided to pull the trigger. I've been looking pretty hard for the last 2 years (was contemplating the 250x when I bought my Beta). I think this is a little bit of a return to the basics of having fun on simplified machine. Just bare bones high performance fun times. Pretty excited! My '03 YZ250 I had was THE most fun bike I'd ever owned. I'm hoping I can say the same thing about this '18 X.
