    In case we have any other fellow dirtbikers on here, I thought I'd post my new 06' Yz250F for your viewing pleasure
    So far, she has: Yoshimura exhaust, black excel rims, black renthal sprocket, renthal bars, works connection hot start, and a few other goodies. The best part is, it only took me 30 minutes to aerate and seed my local parts manager's yard and I was lucky enough to have been able to pick the bike up from the dealer with most of this stuff already on it, at little or no charge.

    I also posted some regular, straight stripes from my 48" Ferris wb

    Very nice stripes, The bike is Really nice. Yamaha makes some nice stuff, and I guess you get what you pay for. I am more of a Kawasaki guy but hey its all good man.

    O yea, the bike has been on the track quite a few times and I love it compared to my 04' that I had before this one. Yamaha recalled all of the valves in the 2006's because the guys that raced every weekend were blowing motors but I just got mine back from the dealer after they replaced the valves. 4.1 hours of work at 80/hour would not have been fun to pay for thank god yamaha stands behind their work. Best part is, I swing by my parts managers house once a week and take 15 mins to mow his yard and then anytime I need something riding related, I just head up to the shop and remind him of how bad he hates cutting grass:)

    Yea, sometimes it gives me that feeling too...I too have broke the collarbone, 7 bones in my right foot, and ive got some nice titanium hardware in my left wrist. But all those crashes came before the new four strokes, which I seem to get into less troubled situations with
