I bought a very nice 1993 XR600 a couple of months ago and now I think it might not be the right bike for me. I love to ride it on the forest service and jeep roads around here. Yesterday I rode with a few guys from work on a 30 mile ride that included long sections or tight, technical terrain as well as open powerline runs with long hills. The bike was a blast on those long powerline hills, but when we hit the tight stuff, I really did not enjoy the bike at all. I have geared it down to 13/48, but the weight is just too much for that technical stuff. It is a handful to turn in that tight stuff and the weight wants to push you through every corner. I have riden off road bikes for over 25 years off and on and have had every kind of bike imaginable. I guess I am getting old, because it wore me out. I just sold a KDX200 to buy the XR600 because I was ready to be done with 2 strokes. Before the KDX I had an XR250, but it was just not enough bike and was boring. I actually rode me buddies 2002 WR250f yesterday, and I loved it. It is light, nimble, and has a ton more snap than my old xr250. I hit a couple of the long steep powerline hills on the wr, and it torques right up them and revs forever, and I'm a 200 lb. guy! I was impressed. I hate to get rid of the XR because it is unbelievably clean and has low miles and they are hard to find, but I want a bike that will be fun to ride in the tight stuff as well as the open terrain. I mostly ride jeep road type of stuff, but hit the tight trails on a regular basis. I also ride with my 3 boys on there XR's often too. I guess I am trying to find a bike that will do it all and it probably doesn't exist. Any suggestions, or anyone been in this situation. My other issues it that my budget has to be $3000 or less so that leaves the used market only. I could pick up a wr426, or wr250 for that price, or a xr400. I dont want to trash honda because I've owned a ton and have 3 in the garage now (the boys bikes), but I sure liked that WR250 and they are the same price as the XR400's. Sorry for the long thread.
