I have to tell this story. After riding 2 strokes for the last 30 years, I thoughI had it pretty much figured out. I have been riding RM250's in the woods for the past few years and bought an 07 last January. Modded it for the woods and felt pretty much at home. Then, a buddy of mine stopped by with an 07 KTM 200 XCW. I didn't even want to ride this thing but I did. Big mistake! It's pretty bad when you can hop on a strange bike and be faster then you are on your own. I can't believe how good this little bike is. Long story short, I traded in the new RM and bought my own 200. I'm faster in the woods with less effort and the smile on my face just won't quit! I did change the shock spring to a progressive and revalved and I added a gnarly pipe but that's about it. I just love my my 200! If you have a similar story, I'd love to hear it.
