What's important to me? Hmm. Tough one.. To keep up! ha. I liked the TTR-230 because it was electric start. I could also tractor through things and lug it around. There wasn't much I couldn't make it through. But the brakes and suspension got old real quick. I've rode a WR250 a little, however, I am no where near as good.I wreck a lot. Then, because I have to pick the heavy thing up so much, I get tired and suck worse. The WR was tough, partly because its tall. It feels a little uncomfortable not being able to reach the ground. If I get messed up the least little bit, I'm going down.
But the biggest thing is price. I have to get something at a decent price. Betas, the freeride, etc would all be great, but I don't have 5G's or more to shell out. Somewhere around 2k would be great. Also, something that is very important is something I can maneuver very well in tight, technical trails. I'm not a fan of open rodes, etc. I like a little bit of a challenge. However, I don't wanna get my rear end kicked by a bike that doesn't suit me well... so yeah..... its tough be a women in a mans world.
