Oh man! I am in that place multiple times a week! I'm gonna have to see whats up. Says the guy will be at Riverfront this week. That's the track I ride the most so I will keep my eye out for it! The white is so damn sexy:worthy:

Who's reporting a "heavy and a big feel"? Every report I've read says the bike feels very light, almost 250F like.

It's definately gonna feel heavy on and off the stand!

Aside from that on track I think everyone thus far I have read from say it feels "two stroke" like in turning (which is hard to describe aside from saying it's all mass centralization)

After riding the 09 honda I am a believer in mass centralization!

Exactly what I was thinking. "Heavy and Big" sounded like a showroom road test.

My friend outside Seattle has the 2010, and previously the 08 YZ450F, the year I truly thought the Yamaha felt like a 250F. So my buddy tells me "if you think your 08 felt small (like a 250F), do not ride my '10; it'll make yours feel like a 02 CRF450."

Of course there's a bit embellishment, but my bud's a credible source and remembers the frame/width feeling from the 02 CRF to the 05 CRF that we both had.

I suppose I view lifting the bike on to the stand and riding it as two different things. And was the "credible source" a person who actually rode the bike?

When I get to ride it, I'll let you know.

My buddie rode his tonite at Hangtown and said it feels better than any YZF ever made. The throttle response was scary fast and the bike looked smooth on a fairly rough track. :smirk:

Call Kevin at Delta Sports Center in Delta Utah. 435-864-3432 he's usually a no BS guy with pretty good prices.

+1 on Delta Sports. I have my name on a blue 2010 for December delivery. Kevin is a straight up guy and he is getting 16 2010's. More than any other dealer in the state.

hey rick, i was worried about it feeling heavy too. but i just spoke to a guy that just ditched his 09 honda for the new yam. he said the blue bike feels lighter in the air and when leaning it over in turns. he was amazed at how much better the yam tracked and overall he said it blew his honda out of the water.

this is the bike im going to get. its ten times more impressive in person:banana:

Wow. 16 bikes this year. That's a lot considering this year has less than 8 weeks left. Maybe they won't be as few and far between as everyone thought.

Interesting. Hard to believe it feels any lighter than an 09 Honda in the air as it does a pretty good job in this area - 250 like.

It's the balance thing that got my panties in a wad with the 09. It's winter so I won't be buying one anytime soon - I like the summer months better, but will have a chance to ride one soon. I'm sure like any other bike, there will be pluses and minuses for us all debate about, along with the few that rave it's better than their first love. I won't be any faster so no rush on my end. I''ll be glad to offer my ride report however.

I'm just trying to understand where they added an extra 10lbs? The engine or frame?

Spoke with "J. Webb" #101 who races @ Riverfront and E Street all the time and is sponsored by Roseville Yamaha while riding Mamoth Bar OHV today and he says he rode THIS bike around the area and it feels awesome! He's a YZ250F novice guy and says it feels lighter than his 250F.

i think the added weight is in the engine. the new frame is so freakin thin, it must not weigh much
