A few weeks before christmas I staerted looking for a WR426. I'd of been happy with a clean used bike but as you've found out they list for more than equal year YZ's. The best deal I saw on the net was a bike listed on this forum, but it was in a different state, locally the best I could find was $5000. I decided to spend a little more for a new bike. I think that is an excellent price for a clean 01. If you decide not to purchase it send me a PM with the guys name and number. I've got a bud who'll buy it, after riding mine he's also ready to jump over to the four stroke side of the fence.
Let us know how you like it if you make the purchase.

Don't take this as a letter from a second father. But if you really are new to 2 wheels you'd be alot better off if you buy a dirt bike and learn to ride offroad.
I've got a son who is 19(almost 20) and has been riding since 3rd grade. A couple of his friends whos parents didn't ride, or allow them to ride as young adults, promptly bought screaming sixes after graduation. They both got a real quick lesson in just how capable these bikes are. They also were new to 2 wheels and there is no doubt in my mind that they would of been better off learning to ride offroad.
It could of been alot worse than roadrash for one and a broken arm for the other. There is a direct correlation between how fast your going and how hard you hit the ground.(the faster,the harder) and as you are learning to become a rider there will be some spills.

I'm sure a streetbike is out of the question as I'm an amatuer to bikes. My wife suggested it, but I'd rather go offroad. No cars to worry about in the dirt, just them freakin quads!! hehe
