I hear the blue ones are slower and nap a lot like 650 Dakars.

I know guys that can paint a turd green add 2 wheels and bars and call it a kdx and out ride most. It was a good bike back in the 1990s. But by todays bikes standards it is slow weak and heavy with crappy suspension. But still can be fun to ride with good tires. Bikes are evolving quickly. The bar is being raised evey year . If a rider is good or fast on an old bike he will be faster safer more comfortable on a more current bike. I see this happen all the time. Ride what you want and have fun. But a new bike is better than old bike.
The kdx was a good bike but the RMX250 was much better.

It seems the scale weight matters less and less each year. My 2013 Ktm450xcw feels lighter and turns better than my 2008 ktm300 (2stroke) or my 2009 ktm400xcw. It feels 30 pounds lighter. Don't ride a 2012 or newer 350 or 450 xcw It might hurt your check book. The 2 stokes are great too. No hype. Just drunk on the koolaid.

PS: I am stuck in hotel in NOLA with nothing to do but expound.

I'm sure you'll make up for that with some epic ride reports in the near future....

was that sarcasm or from experience of ownership?
I never rode one, but they seemed to get around decent. I rode KXs mostly. or was it, KXs mostly rode me??
Heard a lot about the RMX250, RD. Wish I could ride one of these new(er) models, just don't have the balance it takes to finesse them through the trees since a surgery I had years ago.

Got off work and made a loop around Claiborne Co.
Spring is in the air

Had to stop here:

And this looked like a cool place to chill out

I decided to just stay down here tonight but don't have much food in the camper so I thought I'd call ahead to town and order me a pizza. Kawasaki obviously designed the soft luggage with a pizza box in mind
