I like the xt. It handles well on the road and in the woods .
It's light and nimble compared to my dr. Has a lot less power but that is to be expected. Easy has a wr250. It's a much better bike but too tall for me. I haven't ridden a tw. The little fat wheels would make it great for sand and mud. if most of your riding is pavement or hard ground at 50 mph. My money is on the xt.
I'd rather be lost in the woods, than found at home.
