Sold the TTR 250 yesterday and turning Red. It was a great bike to get me back in the saddle after 15 years, but I am ready to step up and pull the trigger on a 250X. My question... I can still get a new '05 or '06 from the dealer. I have done a lot of reading but am asking for help to determine if it is worth $500 more to go '06. I know there are some minor tweaks in setup that I would probably never notice at my skill level, but it also seems that there were some changes to improve the dreaded v-word issue. Also new to TT. Cool site. Thanks for the input.
