And the XT FEELS like its about 200 pounds.
My friends old RM 250 feels heavier.

I did not like the huge air scoops on the Honda.

Very nice, not too high a seat, FI, and only $4500 MSRP. But it felt considerably heavier than the XT. If you check the stats, the XT is supposedly 268 wet, and the Honda is 320, 50+ lbs, a major difference, especially in the woods.

As much as I wanted to like the Honda, I think I'll be keeping the XT.
