New Bike Choice Messin; with my Head
Posted January 11, 2006 - 07:28 AM
It's time to replace my '99 WR400. I've been very happy with my WR but am having a hard time pinning down my final choice on a new bike. I'm 6'6 240 lbs so the right ergos are a key for me. I ride mostly woods in NorCal and usually do a couple of harescrambles a year. My question is mainly directed to anyone whose ridden/owned '06 EXC400/450 and WR450 since I've narrowed my choice down to to those bikes. I love the power delivery, dependability and low maintenance of wy WR. So, I am really looking for the same thing in a better handeling, lighter feeling bike with E start with the ergos to accomodate a TALL person. Seems to me like I would be happy with a new WR but the power of Orange keeps sucking me in. I have ridden a '98 300 EXC which I did not care for and a '03 400 EXC which handeled and tract great but I missed the smooth higher revving power of my WR.
Anyone out there logged time on the WR and EXC who can give me their opinion?
