Going to be doing the following: MX Tracks for practice (not racing, mostly vet track stuff). Monthly District37 AMA - Enduro's/Hare&Hound/GP's - So-Cal Desert Terrain. Monthly friends/family rides at Ocotillo/Stoddard/Lucerne (mostly desert terrain, sand-wash's, rocky hill climbs with some single track, etc.) Height 5'7" Weight 150lbs Age 39 Riding ability: Nov/Int MX'er with little to no desert racing experience. :-) I want a 4-stroke, something the "feels" light and must have e-start. From what I've read the new WR feels far lighter and flickable to previous years, the KTM sounds awesome as well but possibly more expensive. I know there are numerous differences but would love to hear from experienced so-cal desert racers as to which would most likely be the best choice. Thanks everyone.
