Hello, I am new to the sight and I am itching to try a four stroke. I race NETRA H/S on 200s and 250s but I think I would love a thumper. From what I have read the 426 is a little too much for eastern woods yet I see many of them in the races. I want a bike that is good in the rocks, roots and rough stuff but also one that will not get me tired on the first lap. I am very open minded on what to ride. I am considering anything from an XR250 to a DRZ to a wr426. I trust the oppinion of an eastern rider more than a california mx deser t columnist. So any oppinions are welcome to help me make a decision on what to ride. - Thanks a lot!
