A motor-cross high speed racer they are not. Exploring logging roads and single track trails I think they are awesome. I bought mine specifically for hunting but am morphing into more of an expedition bike use. Don't over pay. You can buy a brand new one for around 4 grand. I've seen some heavily mileage used ones in the high threes. Mine is a 2001 and had 600 miles on it when I picked it up 2 years ago for $2,200.00. Good luck and welcome to the forum!
