XR280 V DR350

I need some useful advice, regarding the choice between these two bikes.
I have the chance of a 95 XR280L leccy start,white bros, marozzochi forks, plus original, against a 98 DR350 (enduro model)with supertrap. Both in great condition both around the same money.I've owned 2-strokes previously and now want a reliable bike for trail/enduro. The leccy start would be nice but beyond that I don't know, HELP.

Re: XR280 V DR350

I used to ride an 1985 XR350r. Good bike. Then I purchased a DR350. I really loved it. It was as reliable as the Honda ever could be and was suprisingly easy to ride. I could actually go faster on my DR350 than I can on my new Husqy 610. I rode the wheels off of that DR, then tore it down one day and installed a Thumper Racing 435cc kit and proceeded to ride the wheel off of it again. Either bike is a great bike but I would personally go with the DR. The only drawback was that the stock suspension was a little soft for my 6'4" 200 lb. frame.
