Not to flame or start an argument, but how about a "friendly" bet on the '06's handling? I BET that you won't be seeing handling in the RMZ/CRF department on this one. If it gets rated in the dirt rags as "out-turning" or "railing ruts" over the CRF's or RMZ's, then I'll. . . make a post on this forum and tell everybody how much I suck and how much my red bike sucks. . .
