I dont like the huge exhaust, this was a major gripe in the Honda forum about the CRF450, I wonder why Yamaha choose to go the same way. Loop out once and it looks like you will be buying a new one.

Shawn
If we go IPO I wont buy anything with a check

Cha-Ching :D
In fact I have looked at the following:
the benelli
the Duc 998r
and the MV-Agusta f4

Or maybe All three :D
then I retire to the seclusion of having a job at a Bike Shop parts or just sweeping..... :)

BTW
Yes Thats me holding the Bike, We all turn into Kids :D

The new plastic makes a good looking bike look great! I want to know if the tank, seat, side panels, and air box will fit on my 01 250F?!?!?! I might have to add a subframe to the list too.

I'm so disappointed.

BTW, did anyone take the bike off of the stand and move around on it?

That tank to seat junction is what is gonna keep that thing from ever being run a the Island of Mann for sure. Can you imagine 4 feet of air at 100+ and hitting that tank? Vienna Boys chior here you come!!

E.G.O. - Thanks for the Laguna pics! It must have been a GREAT time up there. Love the pics of the Dukes. Too bad brother Ben didn't go 2-2, oh well we will get'em next year.

Huge? That's an understatement....it looks like they added a TRASHCAN to the back end LOL....

I see lots of hacksaws coming out of storage for this bike...

We were in Cannery Row Friday Night, thats what I call a bike rally, there were some fine looking bikes there. We ran into Miguel Duhamel at the peer, I shook his hand and said even though I am a Yamaha Fan Good luck, he laughed and we spoke a little bit about his Dad Yavonne Duhamel. I told him I saw his old man bail on the cork screw way back when in the ealry 80's. Miguel Crashed in the same freaking spot this week-end

I figure now he is gonna kick me butt for hexing him :)

Hey I hope your moving with the wife and kids ?

Anyone have any info on when the 450F will be out. My local dealer said 2 months, but I think the guy was just guessing.

I'm wondering why Yamaha put a trials seat on it. Every time Yamaha redesigns their bikes the seat gets thinner and thinner. Next time around it will just have a decal that looks like a seat!

I liked my 95 YZ250 couch. Now that was a seat!
