That is not my picture! They have me chained in the basement, with another cripple who took my place! Help! Call the police!

Good article, Matt! Especially for someone chained in a basement. Wait a minute, they don't have basements in California...

Cuddler, when you come down San Diego way you're supposed to call me for a little binge drinking.

Nice article Matt. I believe that your tester might be hiding mad skillz. Get him on a 250 next. How old is he? Put him on that Yamaha WR SM toy at a kart track and in city riding. Unless he's too young. Then the Kart track would be fine.

Picture that with 17" rubber. 2011?

Picture leak-down tests every month...

Looks like a nice bike. I'll stick with the 2-strokes though.

If things were different, I would have showed up at that press intro driving an old Dodge pickup, with a 22 year old CR500 in the back, and challenged them to a holeshot competition. I'd just start in 2nd gear, and it would be all over.

These new bikes were going fast around the track, but no faster than an an older CR250. I can remember seeing people rail around a big berm WFO on a 210 lb. two stroke, that's putting out even more hp. Seems like with the four strikers it's point-n-shoot. 40 lbs. is 40 lbs. I guess.

250 power with open class weight, that needs giant bucks sunk into it after 15 hours of hard riding. No thanks.
