95-99 KX250 (love that powerband)
KTM 380 SX/MXC I’ve always wondered how fast these are to ride, I know how fast they are to race against up a sand wash...
All the above bikes could keep up with my Yammy (more or less, anyway) plus I wouldn't mind riding them in a pinch. To me, especially if ridden intermittently, there isn't much difference between any modern 2-stroke MX bike, especially to my broke friends. I am currently looking for a used 250 for the same reason you are and just want a good deal. But a used XR is very tempting. They usually fetch a bit more than a flogged MXer, but bullet-proof reliablility makes ‘em worth it.
My buddy just grabbed a ’99 CR 250 for $3,300, if you can believe that, and it is in great shape too; the stickers even look good.
Maybe I should just buy a used YZ/WR! That would save on spare parts but it might be depressing to step off my 426 onto a 400. Even more depressing getting on an XR I know but at least you are riding a different bike instead of a slower version of your favorite bike…
…but sometimes I miss the smell of burning premix.
