I put my deposit down today. My dealer in B.C. Canada said he expects it sometime in Jan. Coming from a 00' XR 250, I craved more juice and better suspension. I had orginally thought about the WR426F, but after sitting on the WR250F at a bike show, it just felt like it would be a lot more managable in the tight woods I ride. Thinking about trying Hare Scrambles and a small amount of mx, but mostly woods. After much thought I decided on the WRF vs. YZF. A few questions though; will it "happily" support my 200lbs (power and suspension), and what's the advantage of the wide ratio tranny for my riding preferences. I've noticed a lot of YZF's racing Hare Scrambles. Thanks in advance!
