With the possibility of an all new bike for '06, I wouldn't expect much solid info from the blue team for quite some time. I'll bet the R&D boys will want as much time with the new Yami as they can get.

It would be very easy here to start a "if you buy a crf good luck finding a shop with steel valves in stock to replace the originals before you even fire it up" thread, but there is enough of that in the honda section so I will respectfully not go there and say that the new crfs look like exciting bikes to ride. :)

I thought the dealer show was in June sometime when Yamaha usually announces it's '06 models.

Yes. The dealer show is in a couple weeks. They will announce all the models then. All the mags and other press that get photo credentials should have pics up on their Web sites that day...of course, so will the manufacturers for that matter.

Well I am as I will be buying a 06 .......... my 03 is nice but it is time to get a more refined MX bike that I do not have to spend a lot of money to make it right for me -

I am happy to see that Honda has also changed the motor angle to make the bike turn better - like a RMZ450
As well as Honda has changed the valve seat material to add some more reliability to the valves - we all know this story!
And saved some more weight - :D
For me at this moment the Honda is the 06 to beat......

From what i am hearing - Yamaha will have a newly designed motor and alum frame all to make it turn better and still be reliable - we will see in a couple of weeks! :) I can not wait :D

And finally Suzuki has a great 1st effort 450 ! So I think 06 will be more refined - more reliable and hopefully more power....the jury is still out on this announcement. :)

I am being open minded at this point - as you can tell!
