Give Me A Sanity Check -- KDX200

I've been through the gamut. I started on road bikes and scooters, caught the dual-sport bug bought a KLR, then a DRZ400E. I am currently lusting for a little bike -- a true trails bike. I am too old and fat for a motocrosser, and frankly, MX doesn't interest me. What I've been looking for is something small and light to ride on the trails close to home. I have an XT250 project in the pipe, but it's an old and slightly stodgy machine whose suspension won't ever approach modern standards.

An inmate and friend has offered me his KDX200. I think it's an '03, but I could be mistaken. He's reluctant to let it go, but needs the cash to build his business. He's an ultra-anal bastige, and takes superb care of all his machines. He also rides them hard, so the bike's not a virgin.

Am I about to get a butt-whuppin? The thing makes 37 hp from a bike that's about 270 pounds wet. Except for the family's Vespa scooters, I've not ridden a two-stroke in many years. I have the check in hand, because I like the look of the thing and think it could be a tremendous hoot.

I have the Kool-aid glass in my hand as I write this. Should I swallow?
