But their expected mid jan with a dealer demo bike in the first week of 16..
But its winter here... although.. very warm with 14 degrees C here..
So Im in no hurry......

Nice and warm here in Amsterdam and headed home. But one comment, you guys got any hills. The country looks flat as a pancake and the only thing I see is mopeds and a million bicycles.

I know.. its pretty warm here... probably el nino....  :(

About hills... well.. in Holland we have one that is 300 meters, = about the same in yards.. in height..

we dig holes to get a bit of a different ground level here..

we have a gazillion "scooters" and yes... because its that flat, its easy to ride bicycles..

 

this is where we can do some offroading where its "allowed":

The 13 or 14 YZ450 had a hotter cam. But everyone seems to say the new cam specs produce much more torque and make the bike better to ride.

Been there once. Lots of open areas and still a thriving promenade with lots of people at all hours of the night.

But not as liberated as Amsterdam with the red light district, condom stores and legal drugs. I'm not sure you can miss those things.

I dunno, it appears on 12/16 that the motor passed the ARB' testing. It was added to the website on 12/21. Hopefully this means it's on its way....

Yeah, for me it's kind of a wash because in Florida, which by most other accounts has pretty easy-going laws and taxes, it's basically impossible to street-legalize a dirt bike, yet if you have a tag already, you can convert to FL registration and there's not even a vehicle inspection.  If you do go tooling around on the street, there are basic DOT requirements that they'll bust you for if you don't have, but my one and only purpose for being street legal is so I can ride on the thousands of acres of federal range land next to my house.  I should have a headlight, and if that's the only appreciable difference between the bikes (aside from CDI and suspension valving), I might go WR.  First world problems.

WR:
http://www.yamahapar...ac0215/intake-2

 

Now I'm wondering if the one in the YZ might be bigger...?
