Yea, the ADV got the 48mm goods a year (at least) ahead of some of the others.
Nice thread, btw. I'm gonna share it with my 300EXC flogging bud. He loves 'em and here's his latest..
He's a big guy, REALLY fast, and has everything valved & sprung to suit. A real setup and maintenance freak. Even cleans it madly in between the dirt/mud dunkings.
Anyway, what a great motorcycle.
Another bud has it really bad. Among other brands, he owns a 200exc, 450exc & Duke. You never know what he's gonna show up on, but he's another excellent enduro rider who's ate up with the details of good setup. You'd love a garage session over here!
FWIW, I think I'd prefer the 200 over all of 'em for tight woods, just 'cause I'm least likely to get maimed with 100 less cc.
