Good point, l have been ordered by the boss to take the CRF back out this weekend and to give it a bit of a thrashing to see if it happens again. The dealer (of course!) had no idea . I had so much fun on it last weekend that I can't wait for another blast I have to say that it beats my old TTR250 hands down. Not sure if it is the lower center of gravity or whatever, but it feels far more controlled on loose gravel. We want to get up to the 1000k mark for the first service and only have about 300kms so far, so it looks like I'm going to have a sore ass by the time the weekends up. Seeing as I don't have to buy replacement tires I plan to thrash the rear tire as much as possible....
