    To Turncoat or Not to Turncoat.

    Gotta say I am a wee bit enamored by the new KLX250. And in camo too. I would hate to drop the Tdub but this fall in Moab tryin to keep up with the 250 crowd on the highway...well...it was buggin me a bit. Up here I could probably unload the Tdub for 3500 to 4 grand and a couple more grand and I'm on the KLX. It would be a tuff call.

    I say go for it for all the reasons you state. If you need more speed, more power, more suspension and ride with others who have 250s you owe it to yourself. The TW is what it is and it is pretty much all that it can be.

    Basically just a fat bottom girl with a niche following. You must get used to eating the dust of those who are in front of you out on the trails and breathing the exhaust of those ahead of you on the roads.

    Had my heart set on a CRF250L. But that camo sure has caught my eye.

    Life is short. There are a lot of bikes to ride. The TW is fun, but you have to want it. It lacks in certain areas. To me it's best when you are with a group of TWs. Get the KLX. If you miss your TW you can always buy another. Have you thought about getting a plated KTM or something like that. 250 dual sport bikes are still kinda wimpy off road.

    It is a heavy machine, it is the same weight as my 690, my 450 is 55 lbs lighter.

    After reading the cycleworld review I do not understand why Kawasaki did not make it a 300 considering they had the KLX 300 and the previous 250 was EFI over seas.

    If you are not going to be riding single track you will be fine; otherwise you will find the weight of the bike tiring. That is why I started riding the TW more than the WR and now have a DT.

    The KTM 250 exc are not selling and you can get them at cost.
