I just sold my 1992 RM 250 & want a bike for the trails. I am 36 & just started riding again after a few years off. I am 6'1" & 255 lbs. I loved the light weight of my RM but the power hit was brutal on the trails & it was cramped. I only ride the woods in New England with some fire roads thrown in, no MX in mind. After riding my friends 1996 YZ 250 I am sold on the Yamaha ergo's. I am on the fence whether I should buy a 2001 YZ 250 or 2001 YZ 426. I know my RM wasn't the lightest bike out there but it was fun to throw around. Will the 426 feel the same as the RM considering it is 10 years newer or should I just get the 2 stroke even though everyone & their brother raves about the 426? Both bikes are priced the same & look to be in excellent condition.
