Hi, this is my first post here although I have been lurking around for awhile. I am 44 yrs old, got my 1st bike in '72, currently ride about 12K miles a year on the street (current bike is an '02 Honda Interceptor). I sold my last dirt bike in 1980, and it was a Husqvarna, still made in Sweden at that time. The point is I really, really want another dirt bike. I am looking at (3) used bikes now trying to decide on which one to get. The first is an '03 WR450, looks to be in good condition. Pros: Motor; suspension; relatively lightweight. Cons: not street legal; premium gas?; maybe not the best bike to ride with my 6 year old son when I teach him to ride an xr50 next yr. The second bike is an '04 DRZ400S, and the pros are: street legal (can ride in nearby Blackwater St. Park); can use cheaper gas; better for riding with son. Cons: really soft suspension; heavier than WR450. Bike #3 is an '04 KX250F, which I am only including because it is lighter and maybe easier to ride in Hare Scrambles (which I haven't done in a long time and want to do soon). I have ridden drz400S & E models, a YZ400 but not the Wr450, and no modern 250 thumpers. Obviously I am posting in the Blue forum, so you can see how I'm leaning. What do you think?
