Well after hours of exhaustive research, and days of toiling over what bike to replace my crf450 with, I finally bought my first Yamaha. I found a brand new 05 and picked it up this past weekend. I then drove about 25 minutes east to the nearest open track; And WOW I love it. I did take a little razzing for riding it with the price tags and factory warning stickers still on it; but damn this thing is the cats meow. Thanks for all your help and input.
