So I raced out here at Glen Helen today. 3 motos.....did 2 on my 08 and one on my 10. Same identical lap times!.....My first impression was that the new bike is very smooth,,,handles nice.....suspension is waaaaaay to soft.....but i'm a big guy...235-240lbs its very very annoying on / off throttle...like a light switch..very jerky. I do have the tuner but I wanted to try it in a "stock" state first.... I raced the 08 first moto...the 10 second moto..compared lap times and went with the 08 for the final one...based on suspension alone..< Enzo> did my 08..and its stiff....probably to stiff....for the braking bumps and acceleration bumps but its great on the big jumps..and whoops. I dont want to go that way on the new bike. anyway..........I guess the 10 can only get better right? Once its set up? oh yeah......it was very hard to launch on the concrete start pad...compared to my 08 and it felt very "flat" on the top end. My 08's stronger.....Ported head....06 cams and cdi...Pro circuit pipe..Cp Piston...???
