I was second on the list at a dealer outside of Philadelphia. I chose not to wait way back in August and bought an '06 CRF. I had sold my '04 and wanted to get some riding in this fall early winter. I keep in contact w/the Yamaha dealer as I have bought numerous bikes form him over the past 10 years. He is as frustrated as most of us (esp east coasters) w/regards to the late delivery of the fourstrokes.

Bentley's. Figure's the great keystone state would be last. Prob. the crappy pot hole roads, tax's on everything and all the political corruptness keeping them from arriving in Pa. :applause: Should of just bought one from Andrew's out in OH but if I did then Pa would of got them and everyone in OH would be waiting as this is my luck. Man Yamaha is lucky I have a 03 to ride now or I would be on a KXF as I'm impatient as I'm sure alot are and are buying other brands because of the delay (:bonk: Yamaha). Hopefully the 06 will be as good as my 03 and I'll never have to work on it either.

Nice! I couldn't agree with you more regarding PA. However, after living here over 15 years there are some positives.
While the topic has been 'beat to death', (present company included) I still can't believe how Yamaha missed the boat w/this late delivery. Their sales would have been so much better if these things were available early fall. Coupled now w/Reedy's (he should be on the 2 stroke for SX!) so-so WSX rides on the beast and those non-Yamaha loyalist - fence riders will most surely be on other brands. I'm one of the impatient ones that didn't want to wait 5 + months to ride.

You all in PA don't think you are the only ones who haven't gotten them yet. I'm in south TX and still haven't gotten mine even though the guys in Dallas, Austin etc. have had them for 2 weeks or so. :applause: They better be good!

I got one in today. It is sweet, but kind of a pain to check the oil. The suspension is pretty stiff, but I was only able to ride it for about 15 minutes and I only weigh 120 lbs. Here is a link with some pictures.450 pics

Ya NEMX if/when I ever get the bike as my 03 is set up for winter/woods riding with trellborgs, very low gearing 13/52 so it's a pain to get it back to track form exp. the tires as they are a pain exp. once cold/stiff. Wanted to rent the place the 26th but of course not sure if I'll have the bike by then as Hepler and a few others were in as he'll be home for x-mas but it looks like we'll be going for a nice trail ride now. :bonk: :applause: :cry:
