woods bike v.s mx bike for the woods

alright guys...what's the deal? who actually rides woods bikes in the woods anymore? lol...ppl don't jump on me for this, i actually own an XR200, alotta you know that, and actually know how much i hate it....every enduro and harescramble ive been to, the woods bikes are always chugging along in the woods while motocross bikes are haulin azz through their....now...something like a wr250f-wr426f-the husky wr's are nice too...and they are all woods bikes, but stuff like klx and xr and and ttr....wtf? at an enduro im standin off side the trail and all i can hear is screaming engines around this corner, and all the mx bikes are coming outta the corner w/the front wheel in the air, then all of a sudden this old xr250 comes chugging, and i see the guy twist the throttle all the way, and it like doesn't even accelerate...just like slowly speeds up....i was like what the heck....im just wonderin if anyone actually buys a woods bike and races it in the woods....it just seems like anymore someone takes a motocross bike, revalves the suspension and softens it, adds a bit of flywheel weight, throws on a headlight and taillight, and bark busters and are set to go....its' just weird.....and these new four strokes...omg....they are rippin...i can't believe four strokes can haul azz like they are making them to do now days...it's great....nehow....it's just weird woods bikes are still being made...i personally don't like them, im just wondering what ppl prefer, a heavy slow woods bike for the woods, or a nice nimble mx bike for the woods...sure ya have to fan the clutch more, but it beats wrestling a 270lb monstor through the trees....what do u guys prefer?

Re: woods bike v.s mx bike for the woods

I could live w/o a woods bike. I believe they are more for the really old married crowd. The only real reason I can think that anyone would buy an xr, ttr, etc... is cuz most those damn things have head lites. Im more of a 2 strock fan myself, although I am leanin toward a CR450F. Saw one at Glamis once leaving behind a roast 5 feet in the air, been in love ever since.

I really like my DRZ, it's a little heavy, but easy to ride. It can be in the wrong gear and still chug up or over anything I can handle. It's a fun bike and has more power than I currently use.

A slow rev'n bike will get you places a stock mx bike will only dream about! Also the factory gaurds on a woods bike are better than the aftermarket stuff. I think it would be better to start with a woods/offroad bike than a MX bike

Re: woods bike v.s mx bike for the woods

wow, this is good, lots of different opinions, and no one is arguing w/the other calling him or her a fag or bitch...amazing [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. Offroadevil-450f's are a big hit in the harescrambles and enduro's around here, they are mean, i was standing at a spectator point flaging bikes in towards the trail, and their is a nice...bout...500yd opening in the field, and saw a guy on a 450f just hammer through the gears, front tire up in every gear he hit, plus shooting a roost...but then he got in the woods and chugged nice n slow not spinnin too much...looks like it would be a great bike to have....
