I sure hope so. I am and always have been a Yamaha guy. I really like my 08 YZ and plan on keeping it till 2010. I rode a new 09 CRF 450 yesterday and must say that I was impressed. I only have a couple of laps opinion on a realitivley smooth track but the bike feels very light and easy to ride. What I am hoping for is that Yamaha will look at what the competition has done and raise the bar even higher for 2010. I can imagine Yamaha making a real killer 450 that is as light as the new CRF and turns great too. What do you all think? I can hardly wait!
