Its no secret the 449/511 platform is doing well right out of the gate in off road racing. Now it looks like the SMR version is right on the tail of the world champ after it's debut, fantastic showing. Every person that has bought one seems to really love it. I myself am so enamored by the bike I find it near perfect for me and WAY better than I had hoped. The amazing motor, the smooth clutch and trans, that awesome stock suspension (for my woods work), the light feel while riding, the unflappable handling and surefootedness... etc. I find very little to fault with it. After 375 miles I find it near perfect for me and very EZ to live with. Not new bike hype, real performance appreciation. Vid from Sunday - I know many hate the bike because of it's looks or BMW origin. I would defy anyone to ride mine and say it is not great. Go ride one. Those of you that have bought them and have some time on them what are your thoughts?
