I absolutely loved it, and being quite competative, i now really fancy entering a few Hare and Hounds / Enduros events, and have a go at 'competing' before im even more 'over the hill'. Whilst the XR was great for poodling around on, this time id like something a little faster, a little more modern and something with a magic button to start it with ! Essential late on, in a long race, when your tired and laying on the ground. Again....... :-)
So: I need something road-legal (No problem with this in the UK regarding these bikes ), something that will grow with me as i hopefully progress, something that doesnt have the service intervals / costs of a highly strung race machine like some KTM's (?) - but something i could also dual-sport the 8 miles to work on once in a while if i fancied it.
Im a big chap, and immensley strong with 20 years motorbike experience - but not much of that has been off-road.
Does it sound like the WR 450F is this "Do it all" machine for me, or do i need to look elswhere ?
All advice both good and bad greatly appreciated.
