Didn't anyone get their MXA with the 2010 test on Saturday? I figured everybody would be talking about it.

Negative. Unless my wife threw it away, which is entirely possible if she saw it had a review for the new 450. :banghead:

Maybe I got it early because it had one of those This is your last issue covers on it. I don't want to ruin it for anyone, you'll probably get it today or tomorrow.

Didn't get my MXA yet. I was hoping for yesterday. Oh well, there's today. It's not like you can get your hands on a bike and ride it around here anyway. Though I've seen it done, scanning in an article violates copyrights.

Just figured everyone would like to read it for themselves, like posting up race results the night of a race before everybody has a chance to watch it on TV. The thing that stands out is that it's a YZ450F that finally turns. The suspension is typical plush Yamaha, although they had to play with the clickers. The rest of the bike is on par with the other 450's. Can't wait for the shootout, and for the price to drop.

Mike thanks but maybe mu MXA will come today. I'm in the market for one but want to go out of New York. I'm trying Ronnies, but like Mike said, I may have to wait, depending on the price. From what I'm seeing as to availability, I wouldn't get it till spring anyway. Then Mike could ride it though I think he's happy with the Suzuki.

they sure weren't enamoured with the airbox setup...and in typical MXA fashion they said it is a gearing change away from being good!!

I was about to predict they would say, "We added a tooth to the rear to bring third gear in sooner." :banghead: :cheers:

No way.............well I would like to..............well probably.

I really like the whole package and would love a bike with plush suspension that turns. I'm trying to do the sensible thing a wait till the mad rush is over and see if I can get a deal.

They are going to be very hard to come by intially from what most of the Yamaha dealers have been saying. The dealers I talked to today were both only getting 1 until the spring. I am not sure if there will be any "deals." I would love to get one but I think I will hold on to my Kawi until the '11's come out.

On another note, the LL regional is at Undilla this yr. You interested in trying +30B and +40? I am thinking about giving it a shot....
