This past weekend Yamaha was most represented brand, WR250?
I'm a big Honda and KTM fan but didn't see any Honda's and probably can't afford an EXC...
The Japanese D/S 250's are as heavy or nearly as heavy as a DRZ400. There are a bunch of DRZ400's on CL for real good values. Be sure to get a 2002 or newer because that's when the better suspension was added.
I think this is the way to go.
