Even with knobby’s, it's too damn heavy to have fun with.

I'm thinking (seriously) about buying a WR450F. All I'm really looking for is a good trail bike. But I want the opportunity to kill myself on it, if I want.

I'm 6'5", 250lbs, 31 years old. Should I look elsewhere for adrenaline? Can I get by on a YZ250F?

At 6'5 250 i'd definitely go with the 450.

I am 6'3" and 250 lbs. The only thing I would trade my 426 for is a 450. I haven't found a hill that if I hang on the bike won't climb. Enough power to propell my arse out of the bonds of gravity to! :)

Thanks! It's great to hear big people like this bike.

I'm sold.
