Or they simply get to enjoy much more diverse terrain than you do, ever thought about that? Like you know, mountains, and mud, and tight technical woods, and....

Of course is doesn't matter as much on a desert bike (even though kick start will still tire you out much more on a long day) but if you are telling me that in the above situations an e-start is not preferably then you are quite frankly in denial or .

That's one thing I value in my EXC over the other bikes, it has an e-start that will work 99.9% of the time, yet if you manage to drain the battery for some reason, you still got a back-up kick starter.
