I don't know if I've been living under a rock or what, but just today I realized how much new bike prices had gone up. A new yz450f is going for $7400 at otdcyclesports, which means that most likely my local dealer in town is selling them for close to $9k OTD :lol: I'm so glad I bought my 08 for $6200 last year. This means that at least in the foreseeable future there won't be any more brand new bikes for me, it's all going to be used from now on. The good thing is that the 08 yz450's are so good that I can just keep it for a long time and I won't be missing out on much vs. the new bikes. Besides, I'm a newbie at riding, so it will be a long time before I can say that I'm pushing it to the limit. My other bike is a 2007 wr450f, which is also a damn good bike. So I guess I'm good for a good few years.
