This includes Cannondale. Their bikes CAN'T get any worse...can they?

Honda has always built race bikes, CR's and trail bikes, XR's. They never made racing trail bikes. The closest Honda ever came was offering a wide ratio gear set for the CR250 several years ago that cost way too much money. Any of you other old timers remember?

According to Honda there are only 10 magazine bikes in the country outside of their hands. When I was packing up Monday I saw Don Maeda (Transworld MX) driving in with one in the back of his truck. I guess Dirt Rider's bike spent a week at Pro Circuit where they made 15 different exhausts trying to find something good. I heard that on media day last Thursday Doug Dubach (Yamaha's YZF development guy) got his first chance to try out a CRF... wonder what he thought about it? I'm sure he's been riding the next generation YZF for a while now.
For a bike that is not supposed to be available 'till october, there sure were a bunch at Saddleback last week. About 15 in various stages of modification.
