    What new bike to buy?

    Well as far as jumping to a 450, I am looking at getting into enduro just as an amature and the 450 was the only enduro bike on the yamaha site, so that was my first instinct because I had always ridden a yamaha. As I got to looking into it more I saw that 2 strokes were preferable for their reliabliity and power to weight ratio, but I didn't know anything about brands other than yamaha, kawisaki, honda, and suzuki. As I started looking husaberg was show in multiple reviews as being smoother and easier to ride than others, with KTM right behind, and the prices were basicall the same for what I could see. I guess my real delima is going two stroke or staying with a four.

    I agree a used one would work, but I'm always afraid that there will be problems with it that the seller won't tell me about. Even if i do decided to go used, which one should I get?
  3. Alright guys, if you check out my previous post you can see I'm looking at a new dirt bike and that comes with a lot of options. I'm 18, have been riding since I was 8, and currently have a TTR 125LE. I have an internship with my local off road dealer where my intrest recently got pointed in the direction of enduro. The first thing that came to mind was a Yamaha WR 450F, because I've always had Yamis, but now that I'm looking into it a little more I see that most riders run 2-strokes for their toughness, light weight and power. I looked around and most reviews said that the Husaberg TE 250 is one of the most solid bikes out there, but I don't know a lot about Husaberg or 2-strokes in general, having never rode one. What do you guys think?

    Yamaha TTR125LE 2007

    Never had any problems with it, and I've put quite a few hours on it. With all those hours came quite a few nasty spills, but nothing major ever went wrong

    Should I get a wr450f

    Thanks for the advice guys. I've got some great responses here
  7. I am 18 and have a TTR 125, I've been riding it for about 5 years and am looking at getting a new bike. Initially I was looking into a YZ 125, but I recently landed an internship with a local bike dealer/service department and they are telling me that the YZ isn't worth it, mainly because I do a lot of trail riding. They said that the YZ may run out of gas while I'm on the trail and if I can't ride it all the time, some times I miss a week or two, then I'll have issues. I then started looking at bike reviews and they all said the TTR 230 felt big and slow and cumbersome, which leaves me with the WR450F, but that's a huge jump in power. What do you guys think?
