The new bikes look sweet. Looks like Yamaha went apesh*t on the bike to pass up the CRF. New bodywork is awesome! Hopefully the bike runs as good as it looks. The four speed thing seems kinda strange, but I'm sure Yamaha knows what they are doing. Like other people have said, I'm sure the 4 speed bike will rip even harder than a 5 speed 426. For those of you with enough $ to get your hands on one, let us know how the 4 speed thing works out. However, my self being a college boy, I'll stick to the 00 426 that I don't have any payments on. I'll be paying close attention to see how these bad boys do on the trails.
