Ah, I broomed both of those bikes bud.
The 500 was easily the biggest pain in the *** bike I've ever owned, when it ran right, it was flat out awesome...but that was a once in a blue moon occurance..
The XR600 in the sand pic was a far better bike...wish I still had it..

Ive got an 03 Yamaha yz250f sweet bike and Im thinking of getting rid of it for an enduro 525 KTM that just came out this year. I bet you could get a 2003-2004 yz450f or cr450 for around $3500 those to me are the best bikes for those years. If your looking at newer I would go with the suzukis they are very fast for 05-06.

You can get a yzf426 for dirt cheap! My friend picked one up last year for $1800, and it was near mint. The only problem is there not all that common any more. The 450's will probably run between $3-4k depending on mods.

Those ktm 525's are scary machines. I ride a ktm 300mxc(2-smoke) and that 525 scared me half to death. I couldn't imagine the trouble that much power would get me in :evil: ...

my budy just bought one brand new and said he wasn't even pegged in 5th gear doing 75.....It still has one more gear to go. I've only owned Yamaha bikes so this KTM is going to be all new to me. How the throttle responce on it?

I didn't get too much seat time on it, but it was difinitely a snappy bike. It is my friend's dad's bike, so I only took it around the block once. It was pretty cold out, and I had no gloves or goggles on so I didn't really go too fast. I did rip an unintentional wheelie shifting into third gear, and decided I better get the hell off that bike. :bow:
