The WR450 is over 9K out the door, you will spend a other 2-3K to get it Street legal and running good. You cant' upgrade the 5speed to a six speed. The KTM is a much better value....
Do the math.

I don't know about the 2-3k to get it legal, may just have it in my dads name and Arizona plated. 5 speeds is plenty. the ktm would need springs too so figure 500 more for that. 12k is a lot of dinero.

wife says I need to kill my current yammie, so it may be years until im fully ready anyway!

Lose weight, cheaper than springs. Try cross fit.

So the truth here is your wife is in control. All the anti KTM banter is because your wife won't let you get one.
You know you want one or you would not be at the dealership.

No but I wish I had one at the time. I'm gonna get a small block and tackle set up for this type of thing.

Had to 180 the bike and ride it out, lucky for me it was not to steep in there.

Glad i got mine last year....10800 out the door at three bros. A plated bike is the ONLY way to go any more. And to be honest my KTM 500 exc has been stone reliable and taken some serious abuse. After you cut that big check....its all smiles!

Block and tackle, yes, that's the tool to carry. I was wishing I had one on Verplank trail, but several feet of para cord looped around a tree did the trick for me that day. Peter, that spot your bike is in looks almost like the same place on Verplank except my bike was upside down wedged between two trees, further off the trail on a steeper slope.
