I'm pretty excited but mentally can't stop thinking that it may be too much bike for a born-again rookie like me. My "last" ride was 10+ years ago on a YZ250 when I knocked myself loopy and broke my shoulder in (4) places.

I bought the bike at GP Motorsports in Downtown San Diego. They came highly recommended (both from stuff I saw in magazines and a friend of mine). The transaction was very smooth. I had a price before I went in and was in & out in less than 30 minutes. I would say the price was "very fair" and they didn't try and jack me for freight, dealer prep, etc...like every Honda dealer I went to looking at the CRF250X.
If you're in the market and willing to make a drive, Motoexotica in NorCal offered me the best price of $5700 + tax & DMV fees = $6200. I paid a lil less than $200 more so the drive, time & hassle wasn't worth going all the way up there. The dealer in Santa Ana and riverside wouldn't give me an online quote.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
