    I'd love an XR250. Like I've said, an XR250-400 would basically be my perfect bike. I don't mind the kickstart, I've got thighs of steel! :gdog

    Oh, and the other day I saw a red, 2010 KLX250S parked on the sidewalk outside a grocery store. Met the rider (a cashier in the store) and we talked about choices. It was his first bike and he said he highly recommended it after exhaust, jetting, and a pair of 606's.

    Most common
    CRF250L pros FI/cons suspension, 20kg more weight
    KLX250S pros suspension, 20kg less weight/cons carbs

    But what if you can buy KLX250S fuel injected?
    We have theme here almost same price as CRF250L :evil

    My typical ride will be something like 70on/30off
