My son rids a GG 200 EC. He's about 5'10" and about 150 lbs. w/o gear.
We ride mostly tight, technical terrain. Lots of rocks and elevation change, some mud.

The 200 has been excellent! Very high quality components (Ohlins suspension, Nissin brakes, DirtStar rims). Easy to work on and maintain.
This bike will almost keep up with my '06 KTM 400 in a drag race (though I weigh about 40 lbs. more than he does), will turn underneath my KTM all day long - yet is VERY stable in a straight line and over obstacles and pulls strong down low if it needs to. His bike doesn't seem to rev as quickly as the KTM 2T, but for the terrain we ride on, that's a plus.

As a KTM rider for the past 21 years, I'm impressed enough with the performance of the Gas Gas that I'm trying to save enough money to add an EC 300 to our stable of bikes.
