If the weather is nice, you could stay inland though PA, but it's unlikely. Try to hug the coast as much as possible, and it'll be a lot warmer. Get your mountain fix in Georgia, weather-permitting.

That's just ignorant. Plus, how is a WRR easier to ride than a KTM? I own a WRR and have ridden KTMs, and didn't get myself in any trouble at all. I highly doubt my dick has anything to do with that.

The WRR is quite a bit lighter, and feels MUCH lighter. When I'm riding well, the DRZ moves just fine, and the torque of the 400 is nice. But, the WRR is a lot more forgiving of poor line choice....

You are the perfect use case for the CRF250L. I have put 7,5000 miles on one, and traded it for a WRR, which I now have several thousand on.

Too many bikes means too much time screwing around with them, and not enough time riding.

Most experienced off-road riders use <300lb bikes. Smaller is better off-road, period. WR250R or lighter. The bigger bikes are better on-road, and much worse off-road.
