I'm looking to buy a trail bike over the winter and was hoping to get some advice. Here is what i'm looking for specifically -250cc 4Stroke Liquid Cooled -Headlight/Taillight for night riding -E-Start and Kickstart -something that can get me through the sand and climb some hills too. -I'm not looking to do any big jumps with it so that is a non issue most of my riding will be trail except for the occasional sand pit I have been reading a lot and so far i have taken a liking to the Yamaha WR250, and Honda CRF250X primarily. But today i noticed the kawasaki KLX250S, but it is a dual sport and i really wonder how good the gearing is going to be for off road. Does anyone have any other models i should be looking at? I'll entertain older models as well but preferably nothing older than 2002, maybe i would consider a 2000 for a good price. I'm mechanically inclined and have no problem working on my bikes. I'm dead set on the 250 4T so power and everything is figured out. Unless you guys now a bike with similair output, weight etc that would be a better choice. Thanks in advance for all the information.
