I am looking into getting newer smoker and even possibly trading my 06' crf450r for one. I think I am just ready for a change and I miss my cr... should have never sold it. As of now, I will pretty much only buy Yamaha or Honda... so how does it match up to a cr in all the categories? Handling/Suspension (can always be bought)/ motor wise the YZ really shines right? I was really set on the YZ until the guy posted about how his 02' cr lap times with bald tires were just under his '09 yz. Now I'm definitely thinking... I am looking at bikes '06 + around the same value as my crf.
