Multiple opportunities here in Alaska to purchase the white 09 YZ 450 for $5200. Seems to me to be the best deal in dirtbike history. Can the 2010 be $3000 nicer than the 09????? I'm thinking not. Anyone have a reason for me not to buy an 09 for off-road riding at these prices?? Unless someone chimes in with something I haven't thought of, I'm buying one tomorrow. Crazy, because I love the 08YZ250 two stroke I'm presently riding. I just can't bring myself to pass up this deal. When I think of how much bike I'm getting for $5K, it's almost ridiculous. That, and at that price, I believe it will always be worth what I owe on it. Agree, or no???? Thanks, as always, for the input. Get it! I just turned down my 2010 which arrived today and will be picking up my new white 09 YZ450f Thursday. $5350 including tax out the door. I will have powerbowl, dr d pipe and a bunch of GYTR goodies. Stoll will be $2500 less than the dealer wanted to charge me for the 2010. I'll get the 2011. Will fix the abruptness of the efi at first crack.
