"leaning towards the ktm 200 now, with the kdx a close 2nd"

Ride both bikes, and the KDX will become a very distant second. The little KTM is amazing. You'll love it.

Considering it was your first race with tight trails in the snow, you did alright. I remember that race in '01; rain and mud to the maximum with a deep water crossing. I FINALLY finished my first lap and seriously thought about pulling in the pits but I could not find the pit lane road and ended up doing the second lap too.

This year was better dirt but tighter trail. My new shock spring was the sh*t for my 03. I had to shortshift to keep the front wheel on the ground.

Good luck in your quest for a new bike. Tim (the other guy that was on the ice with me) has an XR400 for sale with stock and short suspension. I think he wants $2200 for the bike. You should make a deal with him and get the short suspension too.

Let me know if you are interested...

ultimate tight harescrambles guy, especially for us shorter guy, is a KTM 200 EXC.

I am 5'6" as well, absolutely love the bike.

it can be jetted/geared/piped/power-valved to fit just about anyone's taste.
