Cool that you have both 16 YZ and KTM 2 smokes, sweet smells coming from your garage!....I took a little different approach as I did not see much sense in buying a new YZ for the reasons you raise. I bought a 2008 and sent it to JMS performance for his ... more »

Depends what you mean by less advanced. Take a look at the Yamaha vs the KTM....the technology in those forks are way behind what's in the Yamaha, just take a look at the topics on this board regarding retrofitting KTM forks with SSS internals. Lets ... more »

I too have become a bit of a helmet nerd after my son spent 4 days in a coma. I was bitter about the lack of technology in a motorcycle helmet. $50 helmet $50 head they said....you need an Aria or a Shoei they said. I always paid the $ for the more expensive ... more »
