Best bike I've ever owned. The suspension worked flawlessly. It soaked up whoops and roots with no sharp spikes to the handle bars. I could double some of the whoops. This bike weighs about 20lbs (guess) less than my '01 and it feels it while riding. The handling is the same as my '01 which means surgical precision. Had to swap the front pads half way thru the ride. The metal pads had too much of a on-off feel. Just my personal preferance. Power suits my riding style perfectly-snaps out of corners like a bullet. If the power falls off, a quick blip of the clutch and throttle picks it back up. Motor is buttery smooth, trans shifting is just the same. Motor almost has no vibrations while riding, my '01 buzzed the pegs. Longer kick starter is very nice, easier to kick over.
