So, 02 520 mxc KTM, or a yz450f Which is an 06. What I really want is one of the v-twin dirt bikes, big smash low weight, hard to work on expensive parts. Like 07ish? Maybe an Ape? Anyway still looking for something to blow up my skirt as I'm officially a small bike sissy. ;-)

525/530 EXC or XC-W are way better trail bikes than the YZ. The MXC has a close ratio gearbox that works, but not as well as the EXC or XC-W. My two pesos.

I love my KTM 530 but sounds like Aprilia is right up your alley.

Pick up the YZ, farkle it, ride it a few times, flame out, get scared, overheat, minor injury, let me know when you offer it up for fire sale sometime in January or February.

As I won't be able to test ride either real proper like, whas the thorts? Are both of them going to bore the piss out of me?
