I own a 02 WR426 and am tired of felling like I can't turn due to it wieghing 270lbs. and most of that fills like it is right up top. I also am literally tired of after a day of riding not having enough energy to ride home in the truck because I had to fight this top heavy bike all day. I am looking at a 05 KTM 300exc. This bike I believe wieghs 224lbs. and has nothing but awsome reviews. I guess unless you have heard otherwise I am out of here.
