Hmmmm a reliable, lightweight, trail bike that can be plated. For 10K I think I would rather buy the entire early seventies line up of Yamaha Enduros. They made them in about every size in 100cc increments. They don't have the suspension of the Freeride or some of the other options that the average rider doesn't need but hey 10K could buy a ton of upgrades. Why do these companies and much of the public think they have to reinvent the wheel? Motorcycle companies have been making these kind of bikes for over 50 years and some of them were even offered in orange! They may not be as shiny and flashy as a cool new KTM but you can work on the old Enduros with a rock and stick on the side of the trail if they ever did break which is highly unlikely.
Now somebody pull this vintage soapbox out from under me and slap it back underneath Woodsrats feet!
