I have had 3 250F's and I took a 5 year break from dirt riding and I about two months ago I wanted anther 250F so I went to my local dealer and told them I wanted a 250F and asked if thay had any 09s left (Im cheap) and they had one but they offered me an 08 YZ 450F for $4280. OTD!!!! No brainer!!! After the first ride I wish I had bought a 450 years ago!!!
