I am the other guy with the 05 300EXC. I bought this bike brand new in
05. By far the best dirt bike I have owned to date. Upgraded the suspension, and gnarly pipe, new spark plug last year.
About to give it a make over this winter. Was thinking of getting a newer bike, but I have ridden (and owned) newer bikes and I can't say that the newer bikes would justify a $5000 + difference from my 300. If you like the bike, buy it and spend some money to get it sorted and ride that !!!!!.
