Made the switch from an 06 yz 250 to a 07 yz 450f. I really like the bike. The 250 was great but I hate to say it I like the 4-stroke better. I am keeping my 06 yz 125 just for fun. It is one of the best bikes I have ever owned. The 450 Yamaha is one of the best 450's I have rode. I get the chance to ride them all. Really though there is not a bad bike out there. They all are better than me as a rider. The Yamaha just fits me better next in line would be the CRF. You will like the bike and the quality. Yamaha's are sound and well built machines.
