Hey All, Newbie to the site here but have been riding for over 25 years. Just sold my 02 KTM 300EXC as I would like to go back to a thumper. The last four stroke I had was a very clean 1988 XR600...great bike but after riding a DRZ 400E one day I realized just how heavy my XR was so sold it and went to a KDX 200 then to the KTM. Guess I'm getting old and lazy as I envy my buddie's ability to poke along on his XR400 without having to row through the gear box like I was doing on the KTM. Long story short: I've found an ultra clean, low mileage 96 XR600 but the guy is asking $2300. Am also looking at a couple of clean, older WR's. but don't want to rule out the DRZ -e bike. Thing is, the DRZ was light compared to my XR but the XR has way more grunt. Any opinions on the WRs or DRZ's vs. the big XR. Feel like the XR400 is slightly underpowered also. I don't want to spend $ on bunch of mods to upgrade a bike either. I ride mainly single track in the mountains of Idaho but like the occasional fire road too. My wife is going to kill me if I keep buying and selling bikes so need to find a good one to stick with for a while.
