I saw the bike in the pits at a race yesterday, took a ride on it, used-looking but very clean and ran great, the teen riding it took 3rd overall. The bike didn't look crashed-up, I guess cause the kid was a great rider. BTY it was a 2004, their selling to get the aluminum-framed 06. Said the engine was never apart, all original. They were very pro-looking for amateur racers, nice tents, trailer, a son, father, and grand-father, truly "good" people. Liked 'em even before they handed me and my girlfriend ice-cold beers! Bike seems like a good deal for $3000 ? I see supposedly mint, never-raced bikes for 4-4500$, and I really won't see a difference long-term because the engine holds up?
