I've been a Yammie guy since my 98 125 and have had about 6 of them. For me the 09 was way better than the wide ass tank they have now. True the suspension is great but in my opinion they handle like shit and are not as predictable at all. I know plenty of guys go fast on them but I just never felt comfortable on it. I just traded for an 11 Honda 450 and could not be happier. Is the Honda perfect hell no but for me it's way better.
