I like two wheels in the summer (RM 125). I have no use for a 4 wheeler. The dirt bike keeps me in shape, I enjoy the throttle response and I like working on the motor. I wouldn't know how to work on my sled if it wasn't for learning how on my dirt bike. Plus the riding style of the rev is similar.

I'd go for the 450R, but then again I like quads better than dirtbikes. I've got a 400EX that keeps me busy throughout the summer.

I have a DS650, and I love it. BUT- I still miss having a dirtbike, and one of these days I will buy one. Your call, but I would say go for the bike.

YOU DON'T NEED ANY SKILLS TO RIDE A QUAD, TWO WHEELS KEEPS YOU ON YOUR TOES AND IN SHAPE. I WISH I COULD AFFORD TO BUY MORE WINTER

I can't believe you guys are even discussing this in early Feb., you are really bringing me down. It's like going to the mall and seeing bathing suits out already!

I have a Honda XR 250 which is very comparable to the Kawi KLX 300. I love the bike...in the trails or open it's MUCH more fun than four wheels. If you're looking to just ride around and have fun, two wheels is definately the way to go. However, if you might use if for anything practical go with four wheels. I'd say that's a pretty good bike for all around riding.

Regarding the "dirt bikes not being allowed where four-wheelers are," enduro and/or dual sport bikes (the KLX and XRs are enduros) are allowed everywhere that four wheelers are. The moto-x bikes (CR, KX, etc) aren't allowed on any place but a race track (or private land with permission).

Good luck with your decision, but for now THINK SNOW!!!!!
