Any further riding impressions, Krannie ? Is the YZ450FX the best woods bike for big guys or is there something better ? The woods I've ridden on the FX are really more like the desert, but in the woods. Not much feet on the floor obstacle work. On Sunday my feet touched the ground 4 times, other than stopping. For that, and any flowing trail with some difficulty, this bike is fantastic. For 'real' woods, the BETA is a more friendly, slimmer, less tiring, and all that. If I could only pick one bike for everything, it would be a tough choice.
