Rethinking my choice in the WR; need a bit of advice please

You should get platform shoes with goldfish in them.
Or if that doesn't work you could always buy a 2005 WR, shave the seat, raise the forks in the clamps, and put in a rekluse...

I also ride the dunes and right now I can only afford one bike so I've just been trying to make things work with the WR. I love the e-start, I love the hill-climbing power and I'm sure that in more capable hands the bike would perform great. If the majority of your riding is tight trail riding then I'd say find another bike. If it's the other way around, I'd say just try to make it work because it's definitely capable.
BTW, a guy in our group has an auto-clutched, trials-tired KTM 200EXC and he does awesome with it in the tight trails. He hardly drops the bike because it's so light, the trials tire grips everything and his bike never stalls. It also seems to have plenty of low-end grunt for the slow stuff. But he has the ultimate setup, a 525 for the dunes and fast desert and his 200 for the tight and twisty. I think this option covers all the bases, but not everyone can afford that. I'm trying to figure out a way, though.
