I am 19 years old and have been riding since I was 6, and since then I have always dreamed of buying a brand new dirt bike that would be mine from the beginning. I went down to the Yamaha dealer today and saw that they have a 06 YZ450 going for 6100 before taxes. They don’t have any 07's in, but said that they could get one for me, but it would run around 7100 before taxes. I know there have been a lot of changes done to the 07, but my question to everyone out there is this. Are all the changes made to the 07 worth another $1000? I have already checked with all the dealers around me and both of these prices are the cheapest. If you were faced with this decision what would you do?
