For the most part it boils down to his bike being 3 years ahead of yours in motocross evolution. Any '06 bike of any color will turn better than your '03 YZ. The '03 to '05 YZ's weren't exactly known for being the most nimble or for that matter, lightest feeling bikes out there. You can improve the feel and steering performance of your '03, but you'll never put it on par with any '06.
