I have enjoyed 3 years of desert riding on my WR450 and now want to get a new '06 MX 450 bike and shed the extra weight. I am struggling with all the great choices and can't decide between the YZF, KX and CRF. I may ride a little at the track, but will primarily be looking for a great desert bike that can handle technical areas, open desert areas (washes) and some hill climbing. The most important items to me are handling/steering, ease of starting, and reliability. Comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
