I've seen a few posts asking about prices. There is a dealer (www.yamahadiscountprices.com)in Mississippi that has extremely low, out the door prices. It's called Lake Hill Motors and they claim they're the worlds largest honda dealer. They also sell Yamaha's. the prices on their web page show 2000 prices but I was quoted the same prices for the 2001 models. That's $5299 for a YZ 250, $5399 for the wr or yz 426's. That's the out the door prices if your not from Mississippi. They don't charge sales tax to out of state buyers. I put a $200 deposit on a yz 250 but am still considering the 426 or a cr 250 ($5199 out the door.) A dealer in Atlanta quoted me $6400 for the cr 250. The dealer is located in extreme northeast Mississippi, probably about a 5 or 6 hour drive for me (Atlanta). The only problem i see is if I have problems with the bike. I don't know how the dealers around here would treat me, if they saw the bike was bought out of state. I hope this helps somebody save some cash. I have no info on how the dealer treats customers. Now all I have to do is make up my mind on which bike to buy.
