Go with the 450. You will need to keep the 250 wound up all the time to enjoy it. I'm 48 ..... go with the 450 you won't regret it!

I will probably ride my WR250F for a couple of years to get my riding chops back and then move on to a brand new 450. I think my 240 pounds (or even if I lose down closer to 200 which is where I ought to weigh) kills the power too much on the 250. The power on the 250 is more on top and I think I would rather have more low end that the larger displacement 450 will deliver.

I will revaluate which brand and whether to go WR or YZ when it comes time to purchase one. If I buy a YZ, I would probably put a kickstand on it and a coolant recovery tank and maybe WR lights for night riding. That new 2010 YZ450F sure looks like a nice bike.

Say it with me... eeeeeeeeeee start. Kicking for the old men blows, especially after a get off or on a steep hill.
