I'm new here and basically new to dirt bikes. I am a lifetime quad rider looking for a new challenge. I am only interested in a dirt bike that I can easily make street legal. Colorado requires head light, brake light, mirror, DOT tires and a horn. I am fairly well decided to get a WR450 (unless a better option exists). I am anxious to get something but would wait if some crucial innovations are to come.
About me: 40 years old, 6'3", 215lbs, expert on any quad, full novice on bikes (twist throttle leery).
About terrain: 50% town fun ride, 50% Colorado trails.
So, am I looking at the right bike and should I hold out for a 2016? I would not be able to sell in a year and upgrade.
