I started riding about 3 years ago, and i ride a honda 250f r. Its just not enough anymore, and i'm wondering about a wr450. I ride desert, trails, single track, sand ( glamis ) , some track and night rides. I want a bike that will get me used to having power and not have to shift so much. I was looking at a XC 450, but with the cost I wondered if the WR wouldn't be a smarter choice. If anyone could give me an opinion. Also, is the wide ratio tranny good for single track tight situations? Does it not want to stall to easy?
