Interesting. I'd like to see what one weighs wet without fuel next to an 04'. Since it lost 1/2 gallon of gas, of course it's lighter than last year fully wet. Nice to see the aluminum SA and decent bars come standard.

There is no way I could ever ride that bike with the stock tank. 2.1 gallons wouldn't get me to 1/2 of the places I go. Anyway, hopefully by the time I need another new bike, they'll be even lighter. :cry:

I like the 300 a lot but I know I'm going to be missing my 426 bad once I get back out in the open like the sand washes in Moab. I was always looking for another gear on that bike and the 300 is much slower.

Anyway, the 300 is an interim bike for me until the 4-strokes get a little more refined and hopefully lighter. Since I'm not going to get any taller, the lower seat heights help as well. What I'd like to do is keep the 300 and buy another 4-stroke in 2-3 years.
