looking for input here...the leftover 07'yzf's are CHEAP right now...like the idea of the button on the xcf's....yzf i'm told can be made VERY offroad friendly/mellow for minor $$...any thoughts appreciated.

i was also thinking about the new 505 xcf. read through ktmtalk, lots of issues on the new xcf's. leaking oil from everywhere. i guess it is hit or miss. some guys bikes are fine and others are leakers. stick with yami, better built and less maintenance. ktm's boil over, clutch issues and i do not like the high maintenance brembo brakes. lance armstrong said, "it's not about the bike!" ride something solid.
