Dont worry Darius I am right with you on this. I worked for Yamaha
until earlier this year, and when the 2010 landed was one of the first to ride it. We went out and tested with factory mechanics, and the standard tyres were ditched in favour of the new Dunlops. There were no pre conceived ideas as we had not spoken to anyone that had ridden the bike, there was only the hype surrounding the reverse cylinder bike. On the first lap I noticed the front deflecting off bumps and I was only going about 60%. I did two more laps before pulling in and asked for some serious suspension
was double checked, clickers at both ends dialled in and out, and double checked tyre pressures. I went out and did one more session on the bike, had a couple of huge moments and gave it back. It was horrible. I had planned on buying that bike until I rode it. I spent the rest of the day on a 250F, or my 250 two stroke. I also agree with the use of the word unpredictable. A lot of guys are very brand loyal, and will stick with Yamaha
through and through. I was until riding that bike. If you are in the market for a new bike soon, go check out the TM range. Amazing bikes. You just have to not mind being a bit different.
