    No. I think the reality of a GG 4T is too far out in the distance for me.

    Most likely Yamaha or Honda. We'll see when the time comes. Depends on what my ride season looks like for me next year. If I'm leaning racing, wr250f. If I'm leaning all rounder 450L and maybe swap the TSE for a YZ125 to keep my 2T ringading alive. We'll see. I should be putting the $ elsewhere....but well, I got a moto problem. :lol3

    Does a 350 just check too many boxes? One too many, like you've had one before?

    I'd entertain the idea of a 250EXC. Don't know why, but aside from YZ125's, I am not the type to get the same bike again. I guess that doesn't jive with a wr450f as I had an old carbd\steel frame one. :dunno

    They are considerably different than your old 350. But if you want to race and have an all arounder it is really hard to beat a 350, I haven't ridden a Beta 390 but all I've heard is that it's the stuff. The new WR250F's are great bikes though. I'd assume the 450 Elle is a great DS but you can have both in those middle weights....... Don't think that I think I have any hope of changing the course of Mr. BMW:D

    I'm not married to any bike at this point. The yamaha's speak to me cause I always got along well with Yamaha and something about them seems "right". Maybe its the rossi factor, or I road raced an R6. Who knows. But hey....I got along great with my 350exc....and I didn't care for the one I test rode before I bought mine. :lol3 I hadn't thought too much on the Beta thing. Might be worth considering. Maybe I'm "boutique brand" gunshy. Cause if I"m looking Beta, I'd for sure look at Sherco. :dunno

    Not to mention that damned nighthawk wouldn't wheelie. I tried with all I could, but it wasn't having it. Plus my wife hated it. Smart woman. Sold few weeks after I got it for a profit. :lol3

    I think both beta and sherco are definitely worth looking at. I understand the Yamaha thing, I love riding Yamahas and I actually really like the CRF250R too. I think you could bridge the gap between an Elle and WR250F or 250FX. It’s a pretty big gap I’d imagine. That sherco 300 with KYB might be the cats meow!

    You love a bike with two carb for one cylinder! :loco :eek7

    At least the nighthawk is one to one, carb to cylinder.
