Fonseca, Mcgrath and a few other pros were out at Elsinore today. Saw Ramsey(was told it was Nathan) take a brand new 450 out, and within a lap, saw it come back with the back end all wadded up (fender, silencer at 90deg., rims bent) Was told that there was a big collision between he and Mcgrath and somebody got taken off. Did not see the crash or anybody get taken off Was wondering if anybody else knows the "real" story.

At a bike show? I thought it was MX Racer magazine's test bike that got stolen out of the back of their truck while they were inside a resturant?

I don't think we're talking about the same bike. The bike that got wadded up had Nathan Ramsey on it (future factory CRF rider). So I think he probably had it with their blessing.

Fastkevin, go back and read SchlepRock's post again. We are talking about the bike that got stolen, not the one Ramsey crashed.

MotoGreg; Go back and read the thread topic again. It's about the one that crashed. Hence the reply about the two not being the same. When you want to set a new topic, you can hit the "Post new topic" icon. Make sense ?

Calm down there speedy. I'm not the one who changed the topic, I was just trying to clarify the facts. :)
