Chris - curious about the new 350 XCW, since you have a KTM 300 2 stroke off-road bike. Are they so different that you need/want both?

Last night my local shop, All American KTM, offered me a smokin' deal on a 2012 KTM 350 XCW to blow out their 2012 inventory.....I've been dealing with these guys for many years/bikes and I appreciate the deal they offered me....pretty charged up about the XCW version vs. the EXC (street) version......the XCW series is ready to rock out of the gate with off road gearing/off road ecu mapping/headlight/slim tail light rather than big street legal junk.....I'll take it over to AZ., add a $40 brake light switch for the rear light, and presto....street legal in AZ.
Chilly raves about it.......that's good enough for me: http://www.enduro360.com/2012/10/18/...-first-review/
I'm heading out tomorrow morning to scout for the 2013 "CORE 4 Kids" fundraiser (I'd love to see a bunch of you there in March!): http://crawdadoffroadevents.com/core-calendar/view/87
I have a couple of local buddies who bought WR's based on my input......so I'm giving them first shot at the farkle stuff......I'll post up whatever is left in the coming weeks.......
It's been a good ride.....both the bike and this thread.....see ya out there!
