Yet another "what racing bike thread"..

Hate to do this but I could really use the help of the collective on this one.

I've been looking around at the very limited selection we have here in Central Australia and I think I've narrowed down my choices to either a Honda CRF 250X or possibly the Yamaha WR250R. I've tried a Honda CRF 450X and it was a bit too big for me. Tried a DRZ 250 and it and my current DR 650 are just too soft in every way. The KTM 530 I test rode the other day tried to kill me. There are 2 used WR450's for sale here but they want over $11,000 for them.

The bike needs to be 4 stroke, street legal ( so I can ride to the track) and as close to "race ready" as possible. Are there any other bikes I should be looking at?

Me:

Terrain: Deep desert sand & whoops…lots and lots of whoops.

Thanks,
