I had an XR400 for years and it is a Great trail bike. Not too bad at dualsport, if equipped. But a similar 250 is even better at singletrack. The XR250R is probably the best, but it's a kicker. ...

Palouse River - Bald Mountain trails

I am planning to go single track trail riding out of Giant White Pine campground this weekend. Does anybody want to join?

Or is it too early - looks like Bald is 5200 ft - will it be too snowy?
