I'm getting a new one soon, have been thinking about it forever and will be for a little longer. I have it narrowed to an xr400, but would like to know other bikes of this sort that compare, mainly in price, reliability, and of course, performance.



1) your physical size 5'9" 170lbs
2) How physical / aggressive are you ? Average
3) what do you plan to ride- Woods, harescramble type
4) Do you have any riding experience? yes
5) Do you think you will race ? No
6) Are you mechanically inclined and will you be doing your own bike work? Yes
7) Do YOU have a preferance to a brand/ motor choice (2 or 4 stroke)? 4 STROKE!!!! big bore, any that are reliable
8) Do you have a dealer close by your home that you might use and what brand(s) does he carry? Yes, the big 4
9) How much ($) do you plan to spend on a bike? $1500-$3000 American
10) Do you live in California? Uh Uh
11) Your age? 16
12) anything else that you think would help form an opinion

Like I stated, I have my heart set on an xr400, but would like other options open to me if anyone feels I should open my eyes a bit wider. Id like a comparable bike to that, and would like to know how it compares. Thanks.

P.S. I'm Sick of the 2 strokes
